Team Bomber lightweight 2mm offset spring retainer

From Team Bomber for the TB-AK12 series is this lightweight spring retainer with 2mm offset. With a standard spring retainer, if you extend the length of the pitching damper and increase the rebound stroke, the spring tension is stronger and it is impossible to reduce the height of the chassis centre part. However, installing this lightweight spring retainer with the 2mm offset increases the range of the spring tension adjustment, so it is possible to achieve the ideal height of the car without changing the type of spring.

Team Bomber pink & brown S-line side springs

Team Bomber have added two additions to their line up of HQ S-line side springs with the release of new pink and brown versions. The pink version is now the hardest spring in this range, with the brown the softest. HQ side springs are best suited for a wide range of popular carpets, high-grip road surfaces and conditions where a solid diff is used. The result of a close cooperation with a Japanese spring manufacturer with testing and technical capabilities they found that the taper of the springs helps reduce on power traction loss during cornering when using a differential. Made with high quality materials, the number of winds of each spring and all their dimensions have been carefully checked to ensure consistency and the best end product.
