I meant to say:
Do you know the number of coils in the Fantom springs?
Some on your original post aren't listed.

tl2111,
Where do the Fantom light blue rears fit in the picture?
They weren't mentioned in Wolf's listing.
Oh. Sorry, that's all I got. Hope that there are more knowledgeable person can jump in and provide the missing pieces.

soft to hard (not sure correct or not)
Silver (1.6) -> Black (1.6) -> Gold (1.6) -> Red (1.8) -> Light blue (1.8) -> Yellow (1.8) -> Deep blue (1.9) -> Pink (2.0)-> White (2.0)

you guys are GOOD!!!!!! Keep up the good work and let us know how it turns out on the track. Manti - your track is tight like mine so I'm interested to see what the mod does for you there.

Manti that looks awesome!!!!!!!

So far we need the MTX3 hub, and the MTX3 dogbone. Can we adapt the V1R outdrive and hexes with different size bearing or do we need the whole MTX3 rear end?

In one of my original posts I have described this problem. The outer arm do hit the floating mount under compression. I just cut away most of the top floting mount to provide clearance. Good for touring car bad for lola

Manti I think is using the same spring combo as me, fantom yellow front and rear, the 1.8mm thick coil. This combo is incredible, you will be stunned at how the car handles. It requires a lot of concentration to drive, many people tell me my car is taily, but if you can control the car with the throttle it is the ticket.

AMG are you still using a front diff with that yellow/yellow combo? I tried it with a one-way it was pretty tough.

Yep I am using the front oneway with the 25T side pulley (so I can use thin front wheels) with a 3mm front/rear gap.

It is darned tough to drive, you have to be agressive on the throttle almost 1/8th style, but it is damn quick. I had a MTX3 driver drive my car prior to my rear camber link mods and he told me it felt better in most areas of the track, but it was taily. With my camber mod the tailyness went away a lot.

Did you find that the car carried very high corner speed?

I lowered the steering servo so it just sit s just off the front lay shaft ..
then just moved the balls on the servo saver from bottom to top steering arms are just about the same angle as original..

Mine hit the middle shaft mount before getting close to the mid shaft. What did you do to get yours so low?

Sorry should of said mid shaft mount And I suppose it depends on what srevo your using Iam using hitech 605 bb
Had to shave a bit off the mount so it didnt touch
Used the old v1r front stabiliser mount as the spacer to lower the servo...

I still have that setup on a car - I put it on the car I rebuilt from Diva actually. The car carries plenty speed in the sweeper but it requires lots of attention to stay fast in the tight stuff as the azz end will come around quick with any sudden steering input. I don't however have many laps experimenting with it so It's going to be the candidate for the camber link mods.

Are you still running the negative diff in that car?
