The silver stock springs that come from the kits are rated as what? soft, medium or hard?

What speeds can a 540 silver can with 25t pinion and 55t spur gear can achieve on a STOCK kit such as a TT01 or a TB03

Are the TB03 rear suspension adjustable to the shorter 251mm wheelbase similar to the tt01 and ta05?

Q1.... I would consider the silver kit springs to be "soft"

Q2..... In what car, what size wheels and tyres, and what battery is being used.. (The internal gearbox ratio is required to work out your final drive ratio and then rollout.... The battery voltage is proportional to speed.. ) Is the car ballraced... Is it 2wd or 4wd??

Q3..... Sorry, cant help you on that one...

thanks for the fast answer

for Q2, lets say a stock entry kit TT01, no bearings, stock tamiya slicks, 2400 mah fully charged battery and lets say on a higher end stock TA05 kit as well

1: The springs are different with some cars, but for touring cars, the silver springs are often slightly softer than ever the 'soft' (yellow coated) springs (from the touring car setting spring set.

2: Like mentioned, it depends on what car you have (as every gearbox can have it's own ratio), the tire diameter, lubrication, bearings, weight of the car (+ it's electronics) and even the body can have quite an effect on it's top speed - for a rough estimation, the gear ratio of the gearbox, the spur size, pinion size and motor size is needed (although even silver cans are known to differ quite a bit, about 10% when tested, even from the same brand and type).

3: From what I know, the suspension is the same as used or available for the TA05 and TRF tourers. These can be reversed, but don't actually change the wheelbase, but rather make for more available holes that offer a different position for (and therefor behaviour of) the dampers.

i see, thank you.

do you know if the rear suspension arms have spacers in the hinges to adjust the wheelbase?

you can calculate the vmax:

vmax in km/h = (((Motor rpm/total gearing)*tire circuit in cm )/10000)*6

tire cuiruit= tire height in cm*pi (pi=3,1415...)

eg.: 15000/5,5*21,5cm/10000*6 = ca 35km/h

but for the real speed you must also caluculate the friction, the areodynamic drag, akku voltage, electric resistance and 100 more parameters :)

Where's the fun in that? "Lowering" your max speed... ^_^
