Assuming the wire is all the same size, the spring with the tighter coil (2nd in that photo) would be the softest and the looser coil is the hardest.

You could also use CRC springs.

Hi. Tamiya side springs (firmest to softest) are:
Black, Gold, Silver, Pink. I agree with a subsequent post that recommends CRC springs as well, I have found them to work very well too. Enjoy your car!

I'm new to f1 but I have raced pan cars before. My problem is my car pulls to the right on acceleration out of slow corners! I have checked for tweak and, the isn't tweaked! I have loosen the diff it made the pull to the right worse, and it gave the car push mid corner. What can I do to fix this?

Did you make sure the center pivot is correctly set up with no binding of the pod ? This must be tested with the pod plate only, no motor mount, and the springs and crossbrace off too.

It has to be free in all directions, up down left right. You should not have anything on the pod plate- no motor mounts or any other parts, just the plate. If you feel any tight spots at all, keep adjusting.

Also, if you take a decent hit, it can throw the car out of whack. What you did on assembly may not be the car's current condition.

No. The car is already underweight for roar standard. I had to add 50 grams.

Anyone know if the tamiya f104v2 titanium version 93033 comes with aluminum hex screws or does it just include Phillips head screws like the regular v2?

phillips head steel (ish) screws.

For some reason the Japanese prefer this type.

I used proper hex hardware on my build and suggest you do the same.
