I think Ron is just waiting to get the rating on one other set of springs...I know at the Nationals he was almost done.

I tried to compare the spring rates myself by compressing two springs together. Man, it is sometimes hard to tell which spring is harder as both springs seem to compress at the same time.

subject: 2 speed one way

How is the proper maintainence procedure for the 2 speed one way? Do you use brake cleaner to clean it and lube it with one way oil after every race?

Default rear ball end

The rear track width of my evolva is set to 262mm, rear toe in 1.5, but 1 degree camber. The rear ball end protrudes out of the rear upper arm for 3.5mm. When the rear wheel hits the board, the ball end comes loose from the camber adjustment screw or cracks.

Perhaps, the ball end protrudes less with 2 degree camber. But I really think Kyosho needs to address this weak ball end problem. When the ball end needs to be replaced, the upper arm must be taken off to unscrew the adjustable rod. One loses so much precious time during the race for that.

It is very time consuming to adjust the front toe and rear camber with the hole in the adjustable rod. The hole in the steering turnbuckle is blocked by the suspension arms, it is troublesome to put an allen key there and turn. When I put the L shape allen key in the hole to adjust the rear camber, the movement of the allen key often is restricted by the shocks.

It'd be nice that the rear camber could be adjusted by turning screw from the side of the car(like a pivot ball design), or use a conventional nut shape adjustable turnbuckle

I clean the one-way out with denatured alcohol and then put a drop of Serpent one-way oil on it.

Default Ceramic Bearings

Can somebody point me where we can get complete set of ceramic bearings for this car.

Also, complete set of titanium screws would be nice too.

Thanks in advance,
Edwin
