That's good to hear. I've only heard of one bad report and that was from KINGZJ. All reviews in magazines from both the US and Australia have been very positive. As for springs, I have a vast array of old 1/8 scale buggy springs. And, I'm led to believe that these should be helpful because the MST-1 shocks are based on the 1/8 scale MBX-4-RR-XR series. Parts will not be a problem in Australia, as our Mugen importer is a fellow racer. I look forward to hearing all your setup tips and tricks in the future.
