I am curious as to why the orange springs with the front light blues? Better in bumps? I've use all orange and all lt. blues but not the LB/Orange combo. Help me understand this setup better?

It helps lock the rear end down. That's why you see grey front springs but no grey rear springs - I've definitely found I like a little stiffer spring up front than in the rear in most situations.

It is fast, stable and forgiving. The car is battery forward so a slightly stiffer front is good for me. I've tried all orange and it is good, but front end would bottom out and even dig in occasionally on landings. I am just comfortable with this combo so it allows me to drive harder.

No problems with creating increased push with that setup then?

I'll give it a shot. Will I be okay with 45F/30R Losi oils with the 1.3x8s?

Any idea when the Spec A TKI3 hits the shelves? Wonder if it will include any of the new aluminum bits.....

Those new Kani tools look sweet. The ride height gauge is genius!

A roller assembled bynKyosho employee's and final inspection done by Kani.

They released a Spec A version of the TKI2 in 2011..very limited run and only $50 bucks more than the kit.

It's a pre-built kit that comes fully assembled and ready to race, just need to drop your running gear in it. They did it back with the TKI2 kits, in fact, my first MP9 was a TKI2 Spec A. Kanai checks them too at the end of assembly - pretty dialed way to go.

With regards to the springs, keep in mind, most of the older setups were done with the battery in the rear - moving the battery forward wasn't done until the 2010 worlds. The springs were designed for the MP9 with the battery in the rear, so after moving the battery forward, a slightly stiffer spring is needed to maintain the balance, hence the gray front spring. Not saying you should always run a stiffer spring up front, but if you haven't tried it, give it a shot.

Yep, I run 42.5/30 Losi oils. I like it alot I did not think it took steeing way but it made the car more forgiving, less edgy, and encouraged me to push it harder. Worth a shot, since you should have them with the kit already

Yep, I have both the orange and lt blue springs. The reason I asked about the oils is because I just rebuilt the shocks yesterday and I don't feel like doing it over LOL.

I like more forgiving

Elliott Boots running light blue up front and orange in the rear with a TQ and win in a big Euro race (equivalent to DNC in the US). Must be the hot setup

And remember all the talk about stripped plastic servo horn vs. broken servo at Worlds?... well, Mr. Boots is still running a plastic servo horn... must have been a broken servo like everyone said.
