Default Can someone help me ID this spring on my tc3?http://dave.cfbinc.com/rc/tc3/DSC05103.J

I just purchased this car and the seller can provide no information. It is a florescent green color.

Thanks
Dave

Thanks, can you recommend any budget spring kits for the tc3? I don't see much for them. Maybe another vehicle uses the same length/diameter spring?

If it's reasonably soft it could be a Tamiya spring, especially on a VTA car that needs soft springs.

unfortunately I have no way to compare it's softness to except the front spring which I also don't know the rate of lol. So perhaps someone can refer me to a budget sprint kit for these things? Do the front/rear springs interchange? It appears they are the same shock.

Thanks
Dave

Get the AE spring kit. Has every spring you will ever need for the car unless you go dirt oval racing with it, then you might want some a touch softer.

I would need two of those right? Seem a bit pricey at $30 a set. My sc10 springs are half that I think and they are 4x the height lol.

If you want to go cheap, just pick up the Green, Silver and Blue. That should be all you need for VTA.

If you're running indoors on carpet, ask the locals, you will probably only need three different sets of slightly heavier springs.
