Can someone post a links for both the yellow and the blue springs?

I don't know what to look for. And have very limited computer use, as my computer recently fried.

If possible www.tamiyausa.com or www.towerhobbies.com

Last time I ordered springs, I got all short ones.

Anything helps,
thanks

Questions??

I noticed in the hop-up section on the manual it said to get the florine coated TRF shocks. I have hard black coated TRF.

Will these not work as good? What are the differences?

And also noticed it came with white - yellow dot springs. Are these medium hardness?

Any advice helps,
Thanks

Zac

if i understand correctly you have a set of trf shocks that you bought. they should be the same shocks as the ones listed as a hop up in the manual. the white springs with the yellow marks denotes that it is the same as the regular yellows, so you are correct. they are medium. people used to and probably still do like to hide their setup secrets so tamiya came out with special white or milky blue springs that all looked the same but had small markings so you would know what rates u were running but at a glance ur neighbor wouldn't.

So it really doesn't matter that I got the hard black coated trf vs the florine coated

No, not much, the ones you have will do VERY well, & if you feel like upgrading sometime later, you can always just buy the HL shock bodies(but I think you'll be hard pressed to tell the difference, I sure can't)...

Guys, I am running orca 11,5T with LRP SXX ESC, with 64p 103T spur gear and pinion gear is 34T. After several laps running, the motor is very hot. I think the spur and pinior gear are not matched. Could you suggest me what pinion gear I should use?

The track is about as big as backetball court


Thank you guys

Well, as always, it's hard to diagnose without actually seeing the track layout, but I would think that your FDR(which would be about 6.22:1, if my math is right) might be a bit tall for an 11.5 motor(especially if your ESC has any timing advance in any of its throttle profiles, which I think the SXX can do), so you might try going down a couple of teeth on the pinion, maybe 3 teeth, & keep a close eye on the motor temp every couple of minutes(would also be good if you have access to a temp gun, maybe someone at your track can help you there). If you can monitor with a temp gun, I'd try as a rule to keep the motor temps below 170 F, that should keep your motor from being damaged....

What is the best body for performance?

I have the Cusco that came in a kit, but I think it's better for looks than performance. It looks like the Rayberg bodies are pretty good.
