if the bulkheads are mounted straight and perpendicular to the chassis and your hubs are right,you will have your rear toe be very close to dead even.even with the stock chassis it is.i just found it more difficult to get right with the button head screws.if you have a caliper,check the bulkheads to make sure they are parallel to eachother front and rear.if they are not,tighten and retighten the screws until they square up.this is what i found worked on the kit i have here.i am not a spokesperson for xray nor do i have any connection with them.i am simply offering suggestions and my findings with the kit i have.for all i know each one could be different.hope this helps.

I may also bring out adjustable camber front c-hubs as well. But the rear hubs will be first.

adjustable camber?or castor?

Jo, use the Associated springs. They work fine. Purple front & copper rear to start. R.W.

actually the accociated springs do not work fine they are one coil to big and will throw of your ride height, droop etc, if you dont want to go that route you could always use the tamiya shortie springs for the mini cooper, i think those would work because of the 4 mm difference in the shock shafts

All you have to do is adjust the spring/shock collars to get the correct ride height. It should have no effect on droop. Droop is simply a relationship between ride height and how far the arms drop. I switch back and forth between Associated and X-Ray by adjusting the shock collars.

Actually, they do work fine. They measure less than .5 mm difference in width & are both 25mm in length. It is no different than changing spring rates within the same brand. You have to readjust the ride height a hair then too. What does droop have to do with springs anyway? Whenever you change any spring (or tire size) you need to readjust the ride height & droop & check tweak.

thanks for the tips guys

i would rather stay with xray stuff now. their springs is meant for their car. i just got rid of my tc4. when i had the nitro tc3(years back when it came out), i didn't have a very good experience with it (associated) also. i remember a race buddy of mine who had a digital spring tension measuring tool. i had 4 brand new yellow associated springs and 2 of them matches closely and the other two were rated the same as red springs! very inconsistent. now i don't know (yet) how consistent the xray stuff is. but basing it with the superior quality and workmanship of xray and hudy brands, i'm very confident that they are consistent. so i'll stay xray

anyways, do you guys know where to get the spring set for the T2? or do they even sell it that way or i'm stuck to buying by pairs?

thanks in advance

Any XRAY spring set will work fine.

Anyways, the car ran good last night guys. I took like 5th because last minute of the race a brush got hung up and shut my motor down... I did't change the oil, I talked to Bobby, and he said it should't be the oil, and I also said I was sorry about saying he did't know what he was talking about on my droop (somewhere on this forum). Anyways, I got my car setup pretty good, my tires are un-even so the droop is not equal when u do it by hand, but when you put it on the balancing tool it is equal all around, well Tweak that is. The white springs in rear with voliet up front seem to work well, and its good.
