The springs on the F201 are so stiff that I don't think 90wt oil is thick enough!!!!!!

the a-arms are not able to take the stress from the harder shock oil . it will deform before the shock compressed.

dig out your old stuff!!

1/. shock spring for YR4M shock springs.
2/. 1/10 pan car shock springs.

I wish they works with the tamiya shocks.

Even with 90wt shock oil...there is so much clearance from the piston that it feels like 50-60wt oil!!!

I only have YR4J which came with the BIG shocks!! Maybe springs from 1/12 will fit??

The loading point for the shock is picked up from the very end of the A-arm so there should be no problem with A-arm flexing.....hopefully!!
