Are the springs that are specific to the T4 on the following list, the only ones that are T4 specific?
Are the carpet springs I bought, the 'RSD Pink' and 'RSD Blue' the ones on the list as well?
As the other springs mention they are T4 20mm etc, yet the linear black springs are also labled as T4 20mm;



And please, please, please measure some Xray 2.5's and 2.3's so we know where they should fit.

THe two versions are 'Narrow Axle' and 'Wide Axle'.

The wide axle versions are the same as the 52mm Xray's, the narrow axle are effectively 51mm (which is why they require the 3mm wide bearings.

The dogbone lengths are the same, it's the axles that are different.

Anyone tried the progressive springs on medium grip carpet.

Although the car has felt good on pink/Blue and Blue Black etc, I'm losing out, particularly to a couple of BD7's which seem to have an edge through chicanes

Might get another chance to test again Friday against the same guys.

I just got my yellow springs this weekend so I haven't run them yet. I have had success on our med grip carpet running the Xray 2.3-2.6 all around so I am anxious to see how the yellows compare on the track.

Just ordered the asphalt 20mm set for T4, in the description it says 4 sets of springs and says 5 sets elsewhere. Also didn't realize they're progressive but no big deal. Can't wait to try since I heard my new radio being dropped off while posting this LOL. what do you guys that have run them suggest for a starting point

So far I've only tried Silver front with 2.5 rears.

For carpet I would start with black rears and blue fronts. For asphalt I would start with yellow rears and silver fronts.

That's another question, it says 5 sets and when you click on the product and read the description it says 4 sets and the one left out is yellow

I think you may have not been on the site recently, so you may be confusing some information. The yellow spring was released just over a week ago so there was a running change on the product. The price was also adjusted accordingly. If you received only 4 springs, you may have ordered before the new spring sets became available.

The old asphalt spring set included 4 springs, the new one has 5, of which the yellow is newer.

Also, if at all possible, try to use the RSD Thread instead of this one to ask questions and post information. It makes it easier to reference 1 rather than 2 threads. I think Skiddins meant this to be more of a product/service feedback thread rather than a second reflex/RSD Thread.

Sort of was, and wasn't.

The other thread mentions TC6 parts in it's title.

There is an xray thread in here as well.

I tried getting the thread name changed, but the moderators are a bit too concerned banning members I think because they won't respond to my pms.
