FLEX LEAF SPRINGS vs Normal Shock

Post by babyboy on Thu 13 Sep 2012 - 11:10

Which would give a better handling? Since I have the T-Rex60 Axel I have a choice to mount either one or combination. Is Flex Leaf Springs easy to install? If the Flex Leaf Spring is too soft is there anyway I can stiffen it?

if you buying the springs from rc4wd, there are heavy duty springs and softer springs.... most people will change to softer springs to get more flex as the stock rc4wd springs are quite hard...

depends on your build, for heavy trucks, leaf springs would be better... easier to manage the weight and body roll.... just my personal view...

for light trucks, i think soft springs or shocks are good... with springs, you dont really need to worry about the wheelbase and the links...

OK Thanks for the input. Am looking at the soft spring Red color one from RC4WD. Looks scale too. I have ordered my Shock from Junfac. Still waiting for delivery. Now pondering which way to go.

I find that four links with shocks are more prone to torque twist (meaning your truck will lean to one side while going in a straight line).stiffer Leaf spring can reduce the twist but you will lose the articulation that 4 links have.

Not really worry about torque twist as most of the time we r crawling and our trucks are lightweight. And i didnt notice it as most of the time our trucks are moving side to side.

If you r talking abt your D90, it is huge for it's size and heavy. RC Nitro Planes has torque twist too and to counter it, the engine is mounted a few degree pointing to the right. Our Crawler no point doing that.. Laughing cannot twist back. But good to know as i read that we can stiffen the leaf by additing something to it. I'm still learning. Thanks for the info.

Yeah, ax10 has more torque twist compared to scx10... Even when light weight... Smile

Liew. Need to see how your TF2 mount up the Leaf Spring. I setup my T-Rex 60 the leaf spring cannot mount after the steering arm is mounted.

I think The leaf will be sandwich between the steering rod and the tie rod that connects both the wheel on your T Rex 60 axle.

The clearance is not that much... between the 2 rod. This is the challenge when you do customization. Smile

Yep, mounting it to the chassis instead of the axle.
For example like this:

Thanks laneboysrc. Learning everyday in SGcrawlers. Just like what I saw from Coldman D110 build, the 4 link mount can be mounted to the outside of the chassis.

Looks like CMS(chassis mounted servo) is more for scale look. To hide the servo.
