Default Question about springs

can someone please tell me if http://www.rchobbies.com.au/store/pr...809d9b32d77204 these will work on any 1/10 touring car, or will I need to buy special springs for each car, like from the original manufacturer?

It's for a Kyosho FW05RR.

Cheers

Ta

In my experience it is always best to buy the springs that are made specific to your car.

The most common issues is the spring size (height). Sometimes they are very different and will not allow for proper ride height adjustments.

what you need to fined out is if there for battery or nitro cars the weight in the two car play a big roll in what springs work. because the factory has all ready givin you a good starting point to go with. but going out side the box is not bad some times if you know what you are lokking for .
