Default Looking for touring car spring set 14mm dia 20 - 25mm long

Hi,

the kit springs on my BRS BT-4 leave a lot to be desired. The inner diameter is 14mm, the front ones should be 20mm or 25mm, the rear ones should be 25mm uncompressed length. The only option I found so far are TRF large diameter springs, 42278 and 47317, for their big bore dampers, but certainly their will be other brands I can use. But I cannot find their dimensions.

Please advise,
Cheers,

Hugo

Pretty much every touring car spring is in that range of dimensions now. About the only springs that are relatively narrow are the standard-diameter Tamiya springs.

I can see you are in Europe, try Tonisport, the shop selling the Ride springs (long and short) for 2euros...

Marvelous, thanks. I've only been racing Tamiya until this year, I need to figure out how the rest of the world works!

There are many trends... and many many many springs brands...
I can only give you my preferences:
- For 25mm, HPI (especially pink, silver and blue) or Ride (there are two sets, a must-have for me)
- For 23mm, Ride too
- For 20mm, VBC can be helpful but SMC are great, X-ray 2.7 are great too.
