I don't run roll bars and I thought the yellows were the stocks. The blue's I have are softer than the yellows so I left the yellows on the front and blue's on the back. They might be yok's.

If your blue springs are softer than your yellows, then they have to be from another company. Both the short and long Tamiya blue springs are stiffer than both the short and long yellow springs.

There are some soft blue springs made by Tamiya that were for the Pro Module (DJ) suspension. They are a little lighter in color than the stiff blue springs

if you are referring to the R or TRF version of the TA-05, we are also waiting for it to be release they have the 75th anniversary edition but you have to pay a premium price for it

Do you mean the 30th Anniversary Porsche 934? That's not really a TA05....

Yes the Blue in the old set is still softer than the red in the newer sets

You classify it as a special chassis. According to Tamiya, there is no chassis name/number for the Porsche.

Likely not until the sales of hop ups for the car slow down.

Until then, the best thing you could do is keep your eye on the buy/sell boards for any fully loaded TA05 cars that people might be selling.
