Ugh, everyone needs to rate their springs in lbs/inch. It would make things like this easier, lol.

i agree! HB is the only one that rates theres on all sites that i know of... others (like O'donnell) can be found with research or just asking on this forum but i agree thats how they should list them instead of just color or just soft-medium-hard.

no, the OFNA white are between the AE black and Silver. Both OFNA yellow and White are betwen the AE black and silver.

AE Black, Yellow, White, AE Silver is the order from soft to firm.

I would guess AE is up to something being that Amain has limited quanities of RC8b kits and shock towers.

The Jammin white is close to the AE Silver. . . though the one on the car could?? be painted white for visibility, one could only speculate.

The new shock tower and a-arm mount locations were announced on neobuggy as an option for AE drivers to use at the world's.

I noticed on the arms that they look like the standard arms that come with the kit but have the risers taken out, and the set hole cleared out for the shock end to fit in.
And the new towers are probally lower to keep the droop lenght the same. But the shocks look to be at a steeper angle so the tower is probally wider at the mounting holes so.

Look at the pics of the arms carefully and you will see it to.

Yea, but they aren't for only the guys that were at the worlds I've seen a couple AE drivers using them around here. Indoor races.
