Talking RC Setup - Shocks & Springs. - Advice.

Hi Guys,

Im new to RC Racing and have a question about Shocks & Springs.

I know there a differen't type's of shocks, soft/medium/hard. How do you determine what is best for your needs? I'm running the Tamiya Mini Cooper on-road 1/10 in the Mini Class at my race track.

I currently have the standard one's that came with it, but want to upgrade? Should I go to Oil shocks? and what springs settings would I best use?

Any advice is welcome

Depends on motor u running


track setup...

Oil filled shocks are the go.

try different spirings each race and see how the car handles..
