i am already running a spool and 35wt assoc oil. i just shortened the links up a bit.

Just wondering if the cyclone can have a fdr of about 3.6:1 for 540 racing & can it acept standard aftermarket spur gears?

also the spring rates for this car are they in coils? is there a conversion table to know what the rates are?

also do towers have the springs, if so what are they called, are they the pro liniar springs?
