Silver LF, but it is a little softer than Kyo Gold. We are looking into this.

One of the first things people noticed! All kinds of fun new stuff. I put the 1.0 front arms on my build and need to drill the rear tower next.

Would a combination of std/1.0 front spring (green or blue) would be similar or they are too progressive for LF Rear?

The std springs are pretty progressive. you can feel the difference in your hands.

I took a couple pics and i think it came out pretty good. The wing was like $8 and some change from amain.
Is that added brass below the motor cover?

no, the only brass is the front kick spacer.

Those would be way too stiff, you're looking at Orange or Silver fronts. Ultimately, the frequency is really important and I think you'll be better off with Silver LF rather than standard springs.

I have my build about 75% done now. The 2.0 kit has a lot of really great features and refinement my hybrid "1.75" didn't have. Just need to build diff, shocks...

Not sure. Maybe blue? To be honest, the wrap leaves a lot to be desired out back. I sent them an email and picture because it does have an abnormal amount of clear.

Will less toe-in help a car to pivot or free it up in rotation?

Ex: going from 3.5 to 3.0 rear toe.

Hey guys I have a question that I hope you can help me with. I have the 1.0 with a bunch of 2.0 upgraded parts and I run on an indoor clay track that I would say has medium to medium high bite. I am running rear motor with my battery pack all the way back. The problem I am having is in the turns whenever I tap the brakes more than about 20% my car's tail whips around and kills whatever line I had going. It isn't a slight-whip, more like 180-225* every time. Do you think this could be due to the fact that I have all the weight in the back and I should try maybe moving the battery forward?

Try adding a little bit of drag brake. This can help slow the car down to help carry speed through turn and possibly eliminate the need to hit the brakes.

Check all your bearings, one may just be bound up.
