There is a colored marking at one side (top/bottom) of the spring.

I wouldn't go overkill on the arms or towers. One set each would do. The car is a tank. I have one set each NIP collecting dust. Only thing I've ever broke was a rear tower in Dec of last year. Landed freakishly on my lid.
Springs I'd get drk blue, drk green, black for front. Rears drk blue, drk green and black.

you may need to swap the rear hubs around for clearance.

Set up in RM4 for outdoor racing. Just switched it back to RM3 for indoor recently. Waiting for the new plastic +8mm chassis.

Best spur gear for 13.5 blinky? I see its a 2.6 tranny like the B4. I'm geared 31/69 now, so 32/75 looks like the ticket.

yes the tapperd side or rounded side goes down so it will allow it to rebound faster

I used long neck all around.

Front: 10mm inner camber and outer camber. 10mm steering hub, 8mm steering rack.

Rear: 10mm inner camber, or 8mm inner camber with carbon plate. 10mm rear hub, with lock nut just in case.

Used the ti-nitrate AE studs with Jconcepts cups and stock turnbuckles. No issues at all.

I made the same switch. Very happy so far. I bought all the usual stuff, arms, towers, wheels, and never needed them so far. For me it was the odd unexpected things that broke. Inner rear camber mount which requires a new tranny. Gear cover cracked, rear hub ball stud pulled out, front ball stud cracked in half, RF hinge pin holder, hinge pin bushings.. because if a hinge pin comes out the bushing will NOT be found on a dirt track.

I am slowly building an arsenal of parts because no one stocks them in my area. I started to accumulate, o-rings, washers, nuts, shock parts, shafts, hinge pins, hubs, bearings. May not need them but if they break you cant use parts from other brands except maybe bearings and screws and nuts.

I bought the Avid spring set front and rear. Running red and red, or yellow front, red rear. 4 hole pistons, 1.3mm.
