I have both the Kyosho and the 3racing spring sets and thought I’d compare the two. ;)

The Kyosho springs compress more and have a better finish, they also cost twice as much. :( Here's is a pic comparing the soft front springs. The Kyosho’s are on the right and compress about 5mm more than the 3racing springs, they are obviously the same length before compression.

Matt, that would be my recommendation. Kyosho generally has the best quality & the most expensive optional parts available, however, in most cases they are well worth the additional cost. :)

I'll try and do the same comparison with springs for the rear shocks. Stay tuned. ;)

The 3racing springs come in one set for front and rear including hard, medium & soft springs for each. The Kyosho springs are sold in separate sets for front & rear, each consisting of hard, medium & soft.

You can do a search on ebay to check them out, however if you want to purchase, contact the shop here or email bithed. I bought my Kyosho spring sets from him (bithed) both front and rear for $30 USD shipped & you get Black Black gum with your order! ;)
