Hey guys,

we just started a rubber tire class at our track and I just had a quick question.

What spring rates is everyone using for :
Rubber tire / Carpet ?

I tried the,
17.5lb (white) in the front
15lb (blue/green) in the rear

Car felt very stable, but felt like it was scrubbing alot of speed in the corners. I know I'm used to foams. is this normal ?

thanks !

I think that the stock silver and gold springs are the most popular for rubber tires on carpet...you should give them a try if you haven't already.

Thats what Flack was running at Cyruls when I saw him racing his T2 rubber tire carpet and his car was fast and hooked up.

hi all! this may be a question already asked but would the diff outdrives for the fk05 work with the T2? need to replace the ones on my T2 and the only ones available locally are the ones for the fk05. i know they arent the milled-out/lightened ones but as long as they will work i can live with those for the time being.

oh, and another question ... have any of you had the rear rims rub against the rear shock ends when mounting the shocks in the outter hole on the rear a-arm? mine rubs bad and have gone through a couple of shock ends already. was just wondering if this is somthing other have experienced. i've used much more, yokomo and speedmind rims and they all rub enuff to eat through the shock ends till they snap. dont wanna use the inner holes on the a-arms coz they do change the handling of my significantly and i really like how my ride is now set-up wise. any thoughts?

1) 05 outdrive work with T2 diff they are the same basically

2) you may want to try to put a shim between the hex hub and the wheel and/or use wider hex hub. However this will also change the handling of the car a little.
Theoretically if you move the bottom of the shock in the inner hole and do the same with the upper mount keeping the shock angle then put on a harder spring you should get te same handling

Has anyone found a shim that works on the axles to remove the play between the hex and the bearing?

When truing your tires use a rough file to grind away a small amount of the rim and the tire on the inside. I do all 4 corners of the car. If you space the tires out in the rear it may be to wide when using more toe. Just make sure that the left and right sides are close to the same width.
