I'd highly recommend the spacer. I haven't tried bending the e-clip on my Tamiya shocks, but on my Schumacher shocks it would tend to make the piston sit crooked. With the spacer, it stays nice and flat.

Not sure where to post this but does what is a good set of Tamiya touring spring to get? There are so many different set out there and I just not sure. I'm new to Tamiya cars.

Does anyone know the different rate between the Tamiya springs?

Thanks

Whats the deal with the "Short" Springs? Are they actually shorter than the regular ones? If so what purpose does it serve?

I may be wrong but I believe the TC cars use the regular springs and the "SHORT" springs are indeed shorter in length and used on the MINI cars with their smaller shocks.

I'm pretty sure that's their intended use. They're not a lot shorter and you can use them on normal shocks no problem which will give you a few more options on spring rate.

Just got my 417V5 built, any suggestions for an blinky mode 17.5T motor on a med grip asphalt track? I've built the car as per the kit instructions. I've seen the Japanese drivers setup sheets on petite rc, are they a good starting point? Thanks

Hi all. I'm just stocking up on some spares that I may need when I start racing the 417v5 - Are there any aftermarket suppliers that I shouldl stay away from? Most parts will be Tamiya, but one thing I can't find at the moment are the suspension balls:

Tamiya: http://www.rcmart.com/tamiya-53709-f...l-p-28915.html

Can I use the CSO ones instead: http://rcmarket.com.hk/product_info....ducts_id=13141

Cheers

Better use Tamiya #50994 if you can't find the fluorine ones.

50994 5mm Suspension Ball

For these parts I would stay away from other manufacturers.
