I actually raised the same question because that is the reason I stopped running TRF
i Matt,
I have also discussed this with the metro guys and it seems a real shame that they dont even have the chance to stock a TRF car even if they wanted to. Looking forward to having a race at templestowe this weekend, should be good pre vics preparation.

Ok I hav ebeen trying to find it, but have been comming up empty handed. The hot spring that everybody has been trying outdoors on their 416 is the Hara silver spring correct? I have been trying to find what the spring rating is for them. I looked on THARD's site but am unsure if the springs there are the regular HPI springs or the HARA ones. Thanks for anybody that can help me out.

Yes, the HPI springs (not Hara).
The Blue, Silver and Gold are the most used ones.

Thanks guys, but I could swear that people were talking about the Hara silver springs were the hot item. I just can't find that part of the thread now. Main reason I wanted to know was to see if I had anything close to try so I do not have to buy more springs.

Lately the most common setup has been a silver front and blue rear HPI spring for outdoors. Tamiya springs on the carpet.

I've used Hara springs with very good results. Better lap times over my Tamiya springs. HPI springs are nice as well. Have yet to try Silver/Blue combo. Only Gold/Silver.
