Description

Avid 12mm Precision Rear Spring Set for 10th scale buggy / truck comes with 3 pairs of springs and fits the Team Losi 22 and 22T, Kyosho RB5, RB5T, Durango DEX410, DEX210 and B4/B44/T4/SC10 shocks converted for big bore springs (AVID spring cups #AV1012 and collar adapters #AV1014 coming soon!). Currently we are offering just spring set but will have individual pairs available soon.

FEATURES:

The labels are custom printed to show the average spring rate (in lb/in) for each batch of springs after theyve passed our quality check. We ensure that the labeled rate on the packaging is as close as possible to the springs you are getting inside the bag. AVID springs are checked in-house with precision spring testing equipment.
AVID springs are raw, un-coated ASTM spec spring wire which ensures consistent spring rates and prevents mis-matched spring pairs. They are easily polished for a ťfactoryŁ look.
Traditional coated springs have a powder coating to protect the wire, but the coating differs in stiffness from the wire. Vendors normally have to compensate by adjusting the wire diameter and number of coils, but as the powder coating breaks down, youre left with a spring that isnt the same as when you installed it.
Coatings can lead to inconsistent spring rates within a production batch leaving racers to guess whether or not their left and right shock springs are the same.
Each set of front or rear springs uses identical wire diameter, varying only the number of coils. This allows for the tightest possible grouping of spring rates, and the most consistent production conditions from batch to batch.
AVID springs come in a labeled snap-top tube for storage to keep each spring pair together.
Each pair of springs comes with pre-cut colored shrink tubing if you prefer to identify them by color. We suggest to locate the tubing on the third coil from the bottom as to not interfere with the compression of the spring into the shock body or spring cup.

NOTES:

Spring Care & Maintenance

If you keep the springs in the factory condition, the wire has some built-in corrosion resistance as a result of the material and manufacturing process. We recommend running them as-is.
AVID springs are uncoated, and can be easily polished with polishing compound and a buffing wheel (or dremel buffing wheel). Be aware that you are removing the protective shell, and exposing the material to moisture. Once you polish your springs they will require more maintenance.
Dont over-do it, polishing your springs weekly, because each time you polish the wire you are removing a small amount of material.
If you are racing in a wet environment, promptly remove springs after race day and wipe down with WD-40 to remove moisture. Dont store your car wet.
As the standard small print, AVID is not responsible for rust on springs. If you care for them properly, the springs should last through the racing season. As a rule of thumb, AVID does recommend replacing springs every year to ensure peak performance. Throughout a springs life, the performance can degrade after a significant number of compression/extension cycles. This is reduced in an AVID spring which has no coating, but it is still un-avoidable.
