Mini-Z Tips: Front Springs

Front Spring Set MZW401

The front springs are the easiest method of adjusting car balance. Just a couple screws and the body mount and spring holder drop right out.
Softer springs will make the car grip in the front better leading to more over-steer. Harder springs will make the car push for more under-steer. The normal set is good for plastic control arms. They also sell a soft/short spring set (MZW423) that works well with aluminum control arms. I have both sets for the most flexibility.

Generally you want to run the softest spring you can get away with. Going to far will result in traction rolls or the body hitting the ground.
