TRF Damper Springs Substitutes???

Hey Guys,

I got the TRF Dampers and I have the 4 sets of springs which are specifically for them.
The TRF Short Damper Springs - Red, Yellow, Blue and White.

Now, I am in search of harder springs. I have the Gray and the Purple Tamiya Springs, but there a little longer, and hence my minimum ride height is too high. I know that you can put a spacer in the shock to limit rebound(?), but I was told that that's kinda cheating abit.

So does anyone know which springs are harder than the Tamiya TRF SHORT SPRINGS but are the same height?


Thanks for any replies.

Use AE TC3 springs. They have a better rate and work best so far.

Yokomo springs are shorter than Tc3's.
They should fit.

I've used Yokomo springs in the past to great effect.

They are however slightly larger in diameter.....
But this does not present a problem.

Are they the same length as the Tamiya TRF Short Springs?
