Default Softer spring compare to RRR

Noticed that the spring is much softer than the RRR...
My understanding is softer spring is good for bumpy or small track, not sure is it suitable for high speed track like the coming host track for IFMAR world race at Brisbane?

The first gear can move left and right. If I move the 2 speed away from the right block to eliminate the gap between the spurs then the gap appears in the whole shaft, which moves left and right.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks
i also notice this on my RRR wce before. What i did was that i shimmed the gap off just enough that there will be no play with the spur gears. I did the same to my RRR evo.

The advantage is that the inside of the plastic pulley won't explode and the pin just keep spinning inside of it. I have had that happened in a Main before and I was with front wheel drive only with 4 mins to go.

The disadvantage... not much actually. I remember when Team Magic first hit the US with aluminum pulley and a friend of mine was the importer at the time and gave me a set for my 1/8th scale, it was cool at that time since no one made alu pulleys, but the downfall is that the teeth becomes way sharp after a couple hours of running and actually cutting your belts in 1/2. Now with the Kyosho aluminum 18T pulley, I have logged about 6 hours of racing and the teeth is not getting sharp at all, which is a pretty amazing thing!

As for weight... you can't tell a difference.

I would recommend the Kyosho aluminum pulleys.

Dom
