Something like this:

Edit: One of our local racers does this with his Losi springs. wrap the label around a coil and stick it together. no problems with falling off.

Kit rear springs are atually 1.4x5.5.

To tell springs apart I simply count the coils.

ok ok ok ... yes I also just count coils but usually change them back and forwards in the holder so its hard to mix em... I was thinking of gettin my cutting disc out and marking em by cuttin small groves into them in order of hardness. But I doubt it will ever happen as kit springs are gold...

I coated the top of my springs with faskolor paints, and created a table noting each colour and the spring rate.

The paint slowly scratchs off, but I have had it in use for over a year. and they are still clearly visable

Default 2008 ROAR Nationals

Just giving you guys an update on the nationals here in Omaha.

We have 4 TOP cars in the 13.5 Ruber A main.

Jason Ertachter is qualified Second and I'm Third. We have some work to do though, the TQ is way ahead of us.

Jason is running the Hacker Brushless and says it fast!

Josh is doing well also, I'll give you an update on him soon....

Hi guys,

Just thought I'd mention how much I love my Scythe! It's so much quicker than my old car, I'm easily a lap faster. The car really goes where you tell it!

Does anyone know any shops (pref UK but anywhere will do!) that stock parts? I need some upper bulkheads and wouldn't mind getting a front diff.

And it just gets better.... Every track you go to the car works well from the 1st time out. I suggest you consider a spool rather than a front diff unless you run spec classes on open tracks...
