This guy 'Vellrip' on ebay in Singapore has them.

We've used his services before, fast shipping, good service. It all depends on where you're located too because you havent said.

If you can't get the F parts in time, just run it as a SWB.

thanks for your answer. I now run on a long wheel base mini with bmw cooper body. Do you mean i will work better with the short wheel base cooper. The race is on carpet, middle size track.

I would be looking to buy as i dont have much tamiya stuff



Also for the trackside mini guys what slicks are you guys running up front on your cars and are you running m grip rears with the slicks up front, and how is the insert situation with the slicks?
Sorry for the delay at getting back to you,but the springs that come with the Mo3R are basically OP-333 Touring car tuned spring set(short type)
The set is a set of Red,Yello,Blue all of these in the M03R are just painted white with the little dabs color so you know what size they are.
The spring set your are talking about sounds like OP-440 On-raod Tuned Hard spring set
This is a set of Red,Yelow,Blue,and White
These also at one time came in all white with the dabs of color so you know what the spring were. These are a little bit taller. Anyway you most likely have springs all ready and i use a many different springs and tires so i cant give you any advise as it would just be silly to try and guess a good tires for you.Im glad the other guys all ready helped you out.

We're starting a mini class around our track.
We are having problems with the kit tires. They wear down in about 5-10 runs depending on driving style.
Replacement costs around 35euros!
What would be a good alternative?

What sort of surface? You havent said...

The kit tyres are the softest anyway, so they will wear quite quickly.
