What springs are those on the rear? The kit springs are too soft when you use aftermarket slicks. Anyone know alternative springs that can be used?

My friend still has his F201. I'll try and see if they are the same diameter unless someone beats me to that.

Has anyone done the standup steering servo mounting? What servo are you using?

I still got my sets from my F201 - I didn't even think to try them

MikeR - when you used the Pro4 gear/stuff, did you use the entire Pro4 diff w/halves and internals?? I tried swapping the metal gear for the Pro4 gear and the stock bearings are too small. So I swapped that out and them lost ALL diff action - so I'm baffled

Another one - on the spool in the front, did you have to 'machine' anything on the outdrive sides to get the CVD end to fit?? My brand new spool was super tight and caused a TON of binding...

So for I'm 0 for 2 with the Pro4 mods

F201 springs or the springs that come with the 3Racing shocks for the F201 will work just fine. Same diameter and length as the kit springs.

Tried the F201 springs on, and they fit. They are about 1mm smaller in diameter so you can't use the top spring retainer and the bottom one will be a little squished. But they will work. I have yet to try them out at the track but I have a feeling it will handle much better now.

If the F201 springs work, then springs for Associated micro shocks should work as well. Since those type of shocks are used as side shocks in 1/10 pan cars or center shocks on 1/12 cars, you can find quite a few different selections of springs.

You know, now that I look at it, Hara might be using the F201 soft black springs... which are still harder than the stock ones.

Rear diff- I'm using the plastic diff gear and bearing spacer only with the stock Racer outdrives.

Front- My spool fit a little loose into the dog bones being used and all. On a side note the pro4 spool is a bit narrow as well so the dog bones don't sit into the spool that well. Something I'll accept for now until someone comes out with a true lightweight Racer spool.

Have you driven the bad boy yet?? I bet the binding goes away in half a battery pack. I'm hoping by my 6th pack my Racer becomes as free as my Pro4
