Sorry to run off subject, but it has always bothered me that Tamiya refers to to those shock clips as pre-load adjusters. They always make mention that adding/removing them stiffens/softens the springs. The fact is they in no way effect the stiffness of the suspension and/or spring, the only thing they do is alter ride height. Preload only determines the point at which the spring begins to compress in a given configuration, and has no bearing on a vehicle setup if the vehicle is meant to remain on the ground.
