I Use the short tamiya springs (not the longer touring car ones part #53440 not these ) part number 53333.
The long ones will work but the short ones let you slam it lower to the ground.

I saw a few pages back where someone said the tamyia connectors for the battery were not the best ones to use. What are you guys using in their place?

I do and I think most people do. You won't really notice a difference with the car. It's really one of those little things that add up to alot. Mostly overall weight of the car.

Not sure how much lighter they are, however carbon is much lighter than steel. A lighter drive train component reduces the rotating mass of the drive train which would result in better acceleration and top speed.

I have not installed mine as yet, as such i can't comment on any noticeable difference in performance, however the physics principle supports this.

Those are mainly for reducing overall weight. They do not rotate with the gears so the rotating mass will still be the same.
