Hi Edwin,
The TRF short springs are available for sale separately. Here i got the list from Rainbow ten:

53630 TRF SHORT DAMPER SPRING(SOFT:2pcs)
53631 TRF SHORT DAMPER SPRING(MEDIUM:2pcs)
53632 TRF SHORT DAMPER SPRING(HARD:2pcs)
53633 TRF SHORT DAMPER SPRING(EX-HARD:2pcs)

so, i guess i will answer my own question. Tamiya doesnt sell them in a set.

Good luck to you and MTX3 for the mini race in Gangsa...

none to be exact... heheheh... just prep ur car for race conditions, ensure all rotating parts are smooth and silky; and most importantly dont get your legs and hands too shaky during race day!

my team will come down this saturday to have some feel of the track... hope to c ya there!

For anyone who's interested, the last batch of Red Dot silver can motors to be produced for 2008 is shipping this week. I've received a lot of inquiries over the past couple of weeks, so if you want one (they also make a nifty holiday present!) it would be best to speak up NOW before they are gone. In fact, the smart guys have prepaid - you might want to do the same to ensure you get one before next year.

Despite the financial meltdown and the drop of the dollar against virtually every other currency in the world, motors still cost only $45 each plus shipping ($8 within the USA for one or two motors, $10 for three or more; international shipping is quoted on request). I prefer PayPal, and my PayPal id is [email protected] as my e-mail addy.

Thanks!
Doc

That's what I was trying to hide from you guys back in July...LOL

a buddy of mine over at HPI told me about that in June, but I wasn't alloweed to say anything...

also Tamiya has classic mini cooper shells back in stock... not the racing shells with the molded grill.. the ones with the proper wheel wells and you have to put the grill and bumpers on...

just on case anyone was interesteed

Easily the coolest Touring Car ever built and a shrunken one would make an AWESOME mini....

I have one of those with a Novak 4300 in it... it's awesome

"The chassis will have a variable wheelbase. 210 or 225mm are available.It is simple to change the rear bulkhead... "

Just one more sleep to the Nats weekend. Really looking forward to taking on the Vics and the ACT locals. Should be some very close Mini racing. Here's hoping we have good weather and a track worthy of the Nationals.

First of... Good luck!

Is there a website we can see results and photos?

Thanks for that. There is a website with live scores. I can't post it now as I'm off to work but I'll do it later today.
