Those will work and are the short springs. The only problem I've found with those is that they are REAL soft. The springs I would recommend are part #'s:
53630, 53631, 53632 and 53633. They are only sold in sets of 2 and are shorter and stiffer then the ones in set #53333.

Hey dudes, I'm running a Futaba servo. The stock servo saver and turn buckles are in place also. I've found a ton of slop on the links at the servo. The shoulder screws allow a bunch of movement. I've wrapped a small rubber band from one side, around the back of the saver, to around the other to help keep the links from slopping around so bad. Helps it track straighter. What servo savers and link ends are some of you running. I'm gonna do some real links to make adjustment easier and want to change the saver and link ends too while I'm at it.

I use the 5mm low friction adjustors for my ends (part #53601) and the titanium turnbuckles 3x32mm (part #53527). As for the servo saver...I just lock it down real tight and I don't get much slop.

Thanks man. I'll look into that stuff. I really dislike the stock servo saver. I'll have to play around with it a little more.

thanks but do you think the 53333 will work if i will lower down my ride height to the fullest with bottoming the chassis?

I know this is last minute but just found out today that currently we have 56 entries in Mini for our TCS race in Memphis TN. If you are not doing something this weekend and are close enough to drive, bring it.

Wow!! That's a LOT of support. Congrats, you guys must put on a great show to attract that many racers for one class. Please be sure to let us know how it goes.

I like to think we put on a good show, this year we are cooking up some Memphis style BBQ for everyone at the race, last year was free hamburgers, chips and drinks for everyone. Here's the link to the discussion about the TCS race in our forum:

Wish I could make it. Next year I plan on making it. A friend and I almost have a Mini program started here at home. I'll have a year of RD and maybe can bring some friends next year.

if the car keeps on rolling/flipping what could be the cause? if i immediately turn into corners sometimes the car will flip/roll and the marshal will get the car . any solutions?
what should i do to my setup? do stabilizers really work? should i put some? where front or rear?

Most likely too much body roll.

Assuming you have the right tires, put harder springs all around, thicker oil and add a roll bar on front to start with.. that should really help

The springs muahdib4 told you are the shortest springs. They will allow you to get the super low ride height. The 53333 set will NOT allow you to have the super low ride height.

53333 set 23mm
53630, 53631, 53632 and 53633 are 20.6mm

I run the 20.6mm springs with no ride height spacers on carpet and that gets me down to about 4mm ride height in front and a little more in back.

You maybe traction rolling. Tires too grippy. Use less grippy tires. Make sure inserts are firm and full. Loose inserts will cause tires to fold over and traction roll. Make sure tires are glued very very well. This also stops the folding over. Lower your CG. All wiring/electronics in the chassis. Widen your wheelbase using wheel spacers. Use the TRF springs 53630-633 as mentioned to lower chassis.

Don't underestimate driving style...you need to enter corners differently with a FWD. Smooth is the name of the game, maximizing your corner speed.
