so do the TOP springs fit loose on the TRF retainer? or do they not fit at all and just slide down the retainer?

what?
the plastic retainer and optional aluminum retainer are the same size.

Just trying to figure out if those new TOP springs might fit the TRF shocks?

Anyone have a good setup for a technical track where sharp turning is needed without drifting the rear???
Tried alot of setup but still can't pull in like like using one way front...

Running on: ESC = RS PRO
Motor = Speedpassion 11.5T

Currently Steering is using No.9 and Mid set-up.

Track traction is high and temp is 28C ~ 33C.

I can't say anything about the alloy ones because I don't have them, but I've used the kit TOP springs TRF shocks and plastic retainers with no problem - maybe the outside diameter is different from alloy to plastic

balancing holes are on the shock towers not on the chassis.

How do I balance it with the holes in the shock towers? Is there a balancing tool I need, or do I have to make my own?

Does anyone know if T.O.P. has sent the carpet kits to the hobby shops that placed orders for them? E.J. Evens said they got then in on Thursday of last week I think.
