Question Planning a CC-01 build ... looking for some tips and ideas

Hello,
I'm planning to get several upgrades for the CC-01 as I start building the kit. One of them is the Tamiya aluminum oil damper set. I think you can use the kit springs on these shocks but I want to know what other springs I could also use. I prefer the springs to be black for added realism so I don't want to use the Tamiya barrel springs ... do any brands out there make black springs that could work with the Tamiya shocks?

Agreed on steering upgrade. Springs can be easily spray painted black or any color you want.

Cool I'll keep that in mind about the steering. I hadn't thought about painting the springs. I'm afraid that the paint might get chipped or flaked off after some driving. Maybe I'll stop by my local hobby shop some times later and check out what they have.

Agreed on steering, Another must have is bearings to replace the stock plastic bushings. The rest I just upgrade as I go. Tamiya CVDs are a nice upgrade as well with a few mods to the C's and C holders to get more steering. Rear four link in the rear as well too, and don't forget the removal of the front block.

I got the Tamiya CVDs and a set of rubber sealed bearings is on the way. Sadly it looks like my local hobby shop is closed down now so didn't get a chance to check out any springs.

I think I'm just going to use the stock kit springs. And paint it with Lexan paint because it's supposed to be flexible paint.

The Hot Racing steering upgrade works great and holds up. That is my number one upgrade suggestion, followed by cvds.
