The Kyosho titanium one is very good. However it is heavier than the alloy ones. But it has held up for long with no wear.

The Tobee items are not poor quality. But they are light. Light = not durable usually.

However STAY AWAY from GPM parts they are rotten quality and a waste of money.

To get better turn in go stiffer front swaybar, one way front diff, or more caster for high speed turn in.

Generally the black springs in my opinion are too soft for foam tires except for lowish grip tracks. Try stiffening the car up evenly all around for more response.
What shock wt would you use with gold springs? This is the V1RR and I have the one-way installed. Manticore suggested gold springs. I do have the rear droop limited a bit, I suppose I can open it up a bit.

So, I'm going run the gold springs with 50wt in front and ? in back. Stiffen up the FRONT swaybar a tad and put a little more droop into the rear. Next week I'll be back saying the dam thing rotates to fast, hehehe..........Thanks for your suggestions I'll give them a go at the next race.

Really? Won't it be a bit twitchy with that combo, I mean wanting to swap ends a bit? I like a little slide how about 42/40?
