Can anybody tell me how stiff the xx heavy and xxx heavy Fantom brush springs that Schumacher sell for the V2 motors are?

How do they compare to the normal Orion / Peak springs?

Car is done. Very impressed with how it went together. New shocks are very dialed. One thing though. What other brand of spring retainer will fit the shock? The gold one is a little too loose for my taste. I tried a Tamiya but they seem to be too small.

I think the Pro 4's work. So does that mean your coming to run with us this weekend.

Replace the bottom mount with the schumacher one or cut a ballcup down to the size you need. Your problem is the shock is too long. I did the same thing when I first used Tamiya shocks.
