Apparently there was an error made when the kits were packed.
The wrong length springs were thrown in !! Minor technical hitch there , though I thought I had made a major cock-up when assembling mine !!
Turns out it wasn't user error......

The shop I purchased mine from, was on the phone to 3 direct on Monday.
They are sending us the proper springs and the -1mm lower retainers, so a good result in the end. Let's call it a teething problem and get RACING !!

As Fleetie posted, the correct springs will be sent out free of charge.
While i have advised 3R that it is advisable to have the car capable of using regular length TC springs like HPI's, it is in effect no different than a team Magic E4, earlier Yokomo'sor Team Losi JRXS-R needing tiny springs, or a Losi XXXS that needs massive springs, just 4 cars i can think of the top of my head.

There is a sprngs set for the Sakura, with about 8 rates, each only a qtr of a wind apart for fine tuning, so all will be good.

I have requested a taller shock tower to allow regular TC springs, so we will see what happens.

In the mean time i have been working on a few solutions, the easiest implemented will be to use a Tammy shock cap (Possibly even just the plastic ball part) on the kit shock.

Again a small teething issue, not to make the car look bad, much better than most other brands first launches, anyone remember losi arm breakages, Pro4 diff crunching, cyclone diff screws etc

Besercoe, why not use the Losi springs they are short. I would think you would want the lower shock tower right?

no need for Losi ones if you buy the 3R springs.
Also, its been said shorter springs dont have the same consistent feel as regular length springs.
Finally, nearly every brand around the world defaults to HPI springs for their team guys (Xray even have a code on their setups 2.6 = HIP Blue 2.8 = HIP Silver, and you are kicked off the team if you ever admit this on the xray forums)

I guarantee the 3Racing springs will be well priced and that the average joe won't have an issue using them either

you guys could also try the rayspeed spring retainer. that would solve the 10mm ride height issue!

nobody's really commented on the r.d.s. system. i'm guessing it feels/drives like a tight diff? with the shearing going on, due to the non-tapered pins, has heat been an issue? you might not have to rebuild it much, but if it melts down pulleys ....

i'd be curious, because we're in desperate need of better diffs for these cars (tc in general). though, i think the gear diffs will be the way of the future ...
