Thanks linger for the measurement,

I am wondering, that the milky blue white should has a different stiffnes compared to the OP-440 set. I am using milky blue and the normal white spring set (both 49xxx). I didn't see a difference.

Hi all,

Just a simple question, why is it that this car is so hard to get?
I'm living in the Netherlands (Europe) and like to buy one. I looked all over the internet. Most of the big internet stores don't stock them.

Grtz,

Jeroen

So far, I've gone the fastest with a one-way. It seems to carry more initial corner speed than a spool. If you step up to 10.5 or mod, then maybe switch. All depends on layout, traction, etc.

It's a limited edition kit. They only make one batch and that's it. But don't worry. The World's spec kit is comming out very soon. Better get it while it's hot...

The old white spring I was referring to was part of the the 53440 spring set
http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...nid=250&id=447

Both the all white spring set and milky blue spring sets are newer and limited editions - so they are probably the same

The best way to tell is by coil count. The old white spring has 6 coils with a wire diameter of 1.47mm. The new white spring has 5.5 coils with the same wire diameter.

Not yet. Hopefully I'll get to borrow a set soon.

Both! Lol. Seriously, I go faster with a 1-way, but everyone in vegas went to a spool. I guess it depends what driving style you are used to.

The world spec is limited ed. and will not be around for long. It will mostly be bling upgrades not performance upgrades, so it is more of a collectors ed.

So i have been told
