Hey guys,

I have a question in case of springs.

Which springs would you suggest for racing on outdoor astroturf (europe)?

I canīt tell because I couldn`t test it so far, but i have been told by a few persons, that the standart kit springs are the worst choice for Turf.

comments? which Colors would you suggest? thanks for any Information

I agree, I've been running mine since April on a abrasive sugar track with no chassis protector.

I ran my buggy all summer on an out door carpet track. It was fairly high grip and everyone stiffened up their cars. I ran yellow fronts with red rear springs. You have to go up in oil weight as well or the car gets really bouncy. I ran 3hole 1.3 all around with 37.5wt front and 32.5wt rear. It was a good setup when it was hot outside.

Don't be afraid to run soft springs in the front.
Normally it makes the inner rear to lift on high traction tracks. I drove on carpet indoor today with pink (the softest) on the front and gold back. It worked very good.
I looked at Tebos setup from the Worlds, was skeptical, but turned out to be fine.

Gives you more rear traction... But I would suggest don't go more than 2mm shims. With RB6 I would start with 0.5 shims under the RF hangers. Adding pro-squat gives you more forward bite on low to medium bite track... But if your track is really high bite I would not suggest using pro-squat...

Managed to break an axle today, just downsided a jump and snap.

Also looking for UMW705 for my RT5 but seems everywhere is out of stock.
Anyone know anywhere I could get one?
Or when they are due to be back in stock?

Hey guys,
Hoping to get some help in deciding on a 1/10 scale. I have an mp9e and an electric st-rr that I drive mostly. I want a 1/10 scale for indoor ONLY. Right now I have a b44, but I want to switch over to K car in 1/10.

So my question is, should I get a rb6 or zx5? I'm not concerned with which class is more competitive or anything. Basically, would I be able to get comfortable with 2wd since I'm mostly a 4wd driver? What would you recommend?

This is the dialed setup! His car was untouchable!
