they are the stiffest NT1 springs ... softer than the cars original rear springs
But i did see a very fast RX 8 running the 5.0 rear springs

I used it for long time. Beware something, the supplementry instruction said, using all 12 pcs washer with all 0.6mm washer stack at the bottom, then 0.4mm, the spring hat set 0.5mm pressure. It doesn't work for my car.
I can see the room between washer was minimized alot, so it totally lose the spring tension.
So I would suggest the stack will be 0.6mm ) then 0.4mm (...... stack 10 pcs and secure the spring hat just reduce the freeplay of the middle plate. For sure your bell should be slip free, otherwise its useless.

Hello everyone, I recieved all the A PLUS R/C Products 10 minutes ago. I am so excited that I received them so fast. They look really nicely manufactured like the other great companies. The new Cluches for 1/8 & 1/10, look like they should work like a champ. New design at a great price.

I will have all the products up on the site tonight and will try to take pictures and have them up at the same time, I do my best.

The web site is not finished uintil the 16th, so I am grooming the site still.
You will be able to purchase from the site if you like now because I will have these parts in stock and avaliable to you guys.

Thank You
Billy
