Try holding 2 different springs end to end and start to squeeze them together (be careful they dont fly out of your fingers), usually the first to close is the softer.

Put them on the shaft of a screwdriver so they can't fly away

first of all, happy new year!
i found a tip:
In order to decrease gap between front wheel and axle, you can put diff disk spring (be care of the direction with bearing). it works perfectly

Quick question,
Do F104 rear wheels fit onto an F109 rear axle or do you have to change any parts?

Thanks in advance and happy new year to all

been looking at the 3 racing F109.
but there seems to be no parts for it. like front arms,etc.
i have read some of the forum, and i see some guys are using F103 parts.
ar the arms knuckles bearings and wings all compatable ? this is preventing me from purchasing the car at the moment. even 3racing site doesnt have the parts under the 109 listing. goes into F103 parts. so i am assuming some compatability here ? thanks.

Everything is f103 except the rear bulkhead and chassis, or the part can be changed out for f103 anyway.

it is more the lack of knowledge that F103 parts like the front arms and things are from F103. even your site only lists a few F109 parts then goes into F103 part numbers. so it is a little confusing at times.
