spring spacing
« on: June 07, 2010, 01:31:34 PM »
OK, for all the advanced DIY tuners out there,....and maybe some words of advice from the pro's,.... How does one determine the best,... or for better words, the "sweet-spot" in spacing the main spring? What is too much and what is too little and how do you determine the optimum efficiency and performance for any particular spring?? Thanks, tjk

guide space 10mm longer the the springs
