My MS is the best car I have right now. It turns in hard. What your setup?

What is the correct Tamiya spring kit to use with the car? My springs are all white with a dab of yellow paint on all 4. Where can I find a Tamiya spring chart for touring cars? Thanks for the help anyone.
Aaron,
The springs that come with MS are the yellow springs from Tamiya 53440 - On Road Hard Tuned Spring Set. (See Parts Listing at back of your MS manual).

I have just received my MS and this is the set that I have been using on my existing TRF Dampers fitted to my TT-01. Most people who race with me also use that set.

Cheers

Kevin

I read reports that said in the last TCS Worlds, Rheinhard and other TCS drivers used the TA05MS and beat out a lot of guys using 415s. But maybe most surprisingly, a Japanese kid with a plastic tub TA05 was even faster!

Default Lightweight Screw Question

Could someone who is lucky and has the Champ Titanium and Aluminium Screw Set please tell me where they use the Aluminium vs where they use the Titanium.

Thanks

All the Screws through the chassis plate are titanium, the rest is aluminium.

Thankyou, Glad I asked.
I was only going to do the suspension blocks, and the steering.

Default Servo Mounts

Can anybody who has a standard TA05 tell me if the servo mounts are the same dimensions as those on the MS. I am wanting to replace the few plastic parts on the MS. Yes! This is my first aluminium and CF car.

No, they're not the same. You can use the mounts of the Evo IV.
