I have just noticed that I had some movement between the grips on my Rap 90 3D so decided to replace the dampers. I noticed that the washer that sits between the damper and the first bearing had started to be pushed into the red soft inner damper. My question is does the dampers sit with the red soft damper facing towards the outside or the inside of the hard black outer damper. If it faces towards the inside how do you know it has stayed in place inside the black outer damper when you push the spindle through. The manual isn't really clear. The picture shows the outside of the damper to be a single colour indicating that perhaps the red inner damper is facing the other way, towards the centre.

nah, the red part should show. Also keep in mind that you should be replacing the red part of the damper every 40 flights or less!

If you want even better damping for 3d, you could try the Infinnavation dampers, or even go to a G-Force headblock.

You are right, the red inner dampners faces out, that is the way I had it set up. Out of curiosity I tried it the other way around and they sit further out meaning that the bolts that screw into the end of the spindle cant be properly tensioned and the grips were already starting to jam. I am happy with the performance of the TT dampners but may try infinnavation when these ones need to be replaced.
