They are 17, 18, 19lb springs. Yellow is 18lbs. I don't remember if blue is 17 or 19. I think blue is 19lbs but no promises.

I run Corally black springs.

Thanks Joe, the red is the softest isn't it ? What about the RTR springs, where do they fit in ??

I never played around with the rtr springs. I just picked up corally black spring set and never looked back.

if you look in the manual it normally may say which type of spring comes in the kit, with a (*1) or something like that next to it.

i pulled my shin edition out the other day and couldn't believe how worn some bits were form running it with a 8.5T, so i spent the rest of the day rebuilding it and decided ill give it a go running 540pro again.

the only problem was i needed to make up a side bracket so i could put my lipos out to fit, plus this allows for easier placement for the lead when i get round to doing a 50/50 balance, as im 100gm under weight at the moment.

Haven't quite finished it yet, rear tyre comes a bit close so need to cut some away, and when finished i will paint the alloy to the same red as the chassis to match, as have found an brand of paint that has very similar colors to chassis brands, as a friend used the same paints for his xray 009 and it came up almost prefect match to the anodizing.

Does anyone have any performance experience with the tf5 sd ready set? I'm looking to replace my trusty TA05.

I like it, but I think you should only use it down to about 17T. The TA05 is doing well at our club using 9.5t brushless. I won't go this low with the shaft drive, only belt drive.

Is 13.5 too much? That's what I normally run. Is the car durable? Thanks for the quick replies!!

Al, you'll be fine running 13.5 with the shaft car. That is what I run and only notice a small amount of torque steer.

I used the black ceramic balls in my stallions diff and it has 2years on it with no rebuild(we race 40 times a year). I also put new blades every week on the spool and still have thre first one in it.

I think it cause I run the belts super loose. I run 10.5 and 17.5. It has been hands down the best car for me. I have thought about going to the shin edition or maybe the shaft car.

Hi Al,

Yes, the RTR is very durable. You'll need to replace the plastic shock balls on the lower rear suspension arms with metal ones, and that's all my six year old and myself have damaged in a year with the cars.

Is there a resource that says what the different pieces in the suspension blocks do? TIA!
