When running the springs bent for a more linear action (98, 110 etc) are people polishing or lubing the contact locations between the spring eyelet and the spr02x? The metals sliding aren’t smooth and seem to “skip”.

Thanks

Hmm. Never thought about putting some lube on that, but some good copper based anti-cease lubricant (like they use in guns)

It's not. You need to have the tabs on top to run it lowered. Tried clocking the endbell but that didn't work.

I have an A800X with soft alloy chassis. For running outdoor/asphalt, what should I get?

- Carbon chassis, which version?
- long arms?
- anything else?

where can i find good starting setup for very low traction asphalt?

Lots of folks are going to Mid Motor Carbon
Yes get the long arm set
Do a google search for PetitRC Awesomatix - There is a wealth of information on 800x and setups for asphalt and carpet.
