Default Milky Blue Springs

To everyone who bought the Milky Blue Spring sets:

The white spring in the Milky Blue Spring sets is different from the White spring that comes with the regular set.

Tamiya removed 1/2 a coil, so now instead of the original white 15.27 lb/in spring, it's now stiffer. That's a good thing since I always thought that the white spring was too close in rating to the blue 14.08 lb/in spring.

I don't know how much stiffer. I no longer have access to the spring tested that I had at my old job.

The rest of the springs (blue, yellow and red) are the same.

Linger try this guy:

Vellrip's eBay Store - Singapore

I normally get my parts for my MRE from him (shipping may be a bit pricey though). He has the kit parts & also the parts to build the spool. The only thing he doesn't have for the spool are the pins to hold in place the delrin cups/outdrives.

I'm a bit sus on Vellrip at the moment, first order all good, second order, 3 weeks later and nothing. Had to file a Paypal complaint to even get a response.

Pity, I want my bits!

Not sure what that is made of but if it has a lot of rotating mass,i.e. steel, heavy gauge aluminum, this tends to take away steering. If this is the case then there are a few ways to increase steering coming into the corners. A quick fix would be increasing the rear droop which will transfer weight to the front tires on entering a corner. You can also add .5 mm shim under the rear block in the front. This will also transfer weight to the front. If all else fails get the MRE spool and it will give you the steering you had with the one-way, maybe even more!

Yeh it's a complete alum unit. I'll try and get hold of a spool with Delrin cups. What does everyone think of the Titanium Racing spool - not the latest ones just released?

Thx I'll have to try a different spool. I've tried just about everything else including everything you suggested. Just ask Eirik!

I wouldn't bother with TiR spools, they snap or fall apart and that's in 27t stock......I'd order a MRE spool and spare outdrives from RcChamp. The outdrives are about 250Yen so they are very cheap . I've been using the same spool and outdrives for the past 6months

Their new design is really good methinks. The old design is ok, but you have to put some tape around the pins to make sure they don't fall off Other than that never snapped an outdrive, and that's running 19T / Mod.
