Just what I thought. Kyosho front springs. Probably Gold.

Yep... rear springs gold as well ... seems like most of the AE guys are using the X-gear springs on the Stadium Truck

I won't go into specifics but after seeing the truck at OCRC the other day and overhearing a little bit, I'd be prepared to soften the dampening.

Usually the case from stock setups considering I've dropped from the stock oil in my 44.3 to much lighter.

Which is strange too because on the centro we run 1.5 fronts and 1.6 rear 35/30 and that truck is money!! I was surprised at what Brent was using.

What spare parts is everyone planning to have on hand from day one? Based off B5m breakage, I'm honestly thinking the only thing I'll need to have on hand are arms and steering blocks. I have lower shock collars and eyelets already. Oh maybe a front shock tower?

How about you?

I bought front and rear arms, front and rear shock towers and body mounts. I already have everything else for my B5m.

Spare Front tower Regular
Spare front and rear tower Hard
Front and rear arms Regular
Front and rear arms Hard
Steering blocks...

That's about it... even then most of the hard stuff is just to see how it works on the truck

Parts come in hard or standard. Hard can break easier but have a different "feel" when driving. Kinda a preference thing but can also affect the way a car handles.
