I have only 2 race nights with the screws and it is hard for a rookie like me to tell the difference. I am hoping someone will chime in with some technical advice so that we can learn some more info.
thanks alot people!!

Thumbs up

The side will work the best over the long run. The t-bar will need to be changed after 5 to 6 race days. Try using a med spring steel t-bar and side springs and your car will be bullet proof. do not use the treak screws.

Is springsteel really going to make much of a difference over the CF T-bar it comes with?

Read your first post wrong, thought you said it would be a bullet Not really worried about breaking a T-bar since the one I broke last week is the first I've ever broken on a T-bar car. However now that I've said that i'm sure I'll break two this week... Handling dynamics wise what do you guys think is best on a high grip carpet track?

Any t-bar will break!! believe me!!!
I have seen a good driver break a spring steel t-plate....maybe it was defective because I witnessed the crash and we were all surprised!!!
Anyway, thanks for the advice and I hope someone responds to Ike's question.

The side springs are for grip on the t-force and not the t-bar. If you run ashpart you take off the side spring and then just run the t-bar the .63 is best for that. That is the good thing about this car it's like having two cars in one.

I have yet to experiment with the different side springs on carpet.(red,green,purple)----------Has any one else tried and what can I expect when I stiffen them?????

Still getting faster every week with the T-bar so haven't done the side spring thing yet.

im switching to t bar. side springs just doesnt cut it. i think the springs are inconsistent. you wont see t-fource in big events with side spings anyway. i'll let u guys know how it goes.

DAKRAT i ran side springs on my t force three years ago when i won snow birds and i know eli and mike pulfer used them in cleveland tow years ago . side springs to t plate depends on the track big sweeping tracks the springs work really well and for small tight tracks if you go up on spring rate they will feel just like a t bar car .. i will run springs at the brids.

Is the medium spring steel t-bar the same as the .063 or .075?

But you didn't use them at Cleveland did you Mark? Also, why is Frank wanting all the CRC guys to run the Knife over the T-fource? At least this is what I was led to believe.
