I'm using the stock springs and they seem pretty stiff. The first road wheel is VERY stiff, mostly because of how that suspension is designed... I'm considering cutting that spring down a little to make it a bit softer!
Yea rubber rims would have been nice... and quieter... it sounds like a freight train.
Strato, I ordered a set of Tamiya Pershing rubber rims and they fit the HL Pershing metal bogies quite nicely. Now I just need to see how they run.
Mike keep me posted on that... remember how loudly that rank roars? Stupid 'molded' plastic tires... blah!

Strato I ran it over the weekend on stone paths and they are less noisy and less bouncy as well. Just a more solid steady ride over all. Highly recommended.
I bought it from Jason's Store on eBay (jc-rc) but he sells them one side at a time so you need to buy 2 sets to make a complete tank.
My Tamiya Leo to Heng Long ZTZ didn't go as well so now I have a set of Tamiya Leo rubber rims to sell........ :-(
