Have not made any significant changes to my ride for a month.

Drives awesome...

But.....

I'm ordering a set of K springs today....

Getting

Red & Gold springs
front & rear

That's about $100 ....

Will let everyone know if it was worth it.

WOW, that's a huge turnout. We averaged 160 over the last winter series and I thought that was big.

Can someone explain the spring cup offset, please. Most of the setups call for 5 offset, but my kit has 1-4s.

TIA!

Those are mold numbers. The 5mm is the middle one, just lay them out and pick the medium sized one.

I'm thinking about taking my b5m sand bashing. I thought the mid motor would help keep from getting sand loaded into the motor. I heard stadium truck tires are good for the sand, the wider front tires ride on top instead of digging in. What 1/10 stadium truck wheels will fit? Any other thoughts?

Yeah, buy a cheap slash and use it instead.
