I prefer the Yatabe springs on my buggy, but on my SC10 and now also on the T5M, the old Yokomo stuff works better than my plethora of Associated, Avid and new Yokomo springs. Good job by AE to release their own set, it will make replicating team driver set-ups much easier!

I run a similar Kyosho spring on my T5m and they made a huge difference



The truck feels so much more stable and predictable, glad
Associated redesigned them

I am picking up my kit today. Anyone has any advice on what gearing to run with a 8.5 motor? Indoor high bite track. Thanks
