"M" = medium hard design with +17% increased spring pressure for use in vehicles with heavier construction than series - e.g. with RoofRacks, attachments, stronger LiPos, trailers, self-made bodies etc.. Use for example on the rear axle only.
Delivery as (2) individual springs w/o further components: Set of 2 springs for 1 axle

crawlster®D18 TUNING-KIT: the 4,5 x longer outer tuning springs optimize the impact / rebound behavior of the standard dampers.
Standard dampers: the deflection of the short internal springs begins far above the vehicle weight (grey), the spring pressure increases disproportionately in the further course and will limit the damper travel to 7 mm when the springs are completely compressed.
crawlster®D18 TUNING-KIT: the deflection of the external 4.5 x longer outer tuning springs (S=soft) starts below the vehicle weight (grey), the spring pressure remains also with increasing compression almost linear and allows full damper travel of 10 mm
Readings per (1) spring; vehicle-weight incl. LiPo w/o axles and wheels = approx.290 g / 4 = ca. 72g / spring
The unique crawlster®D18-Joint ensures an unrestricted steering angle and significantly improves the curve performance.
crawlster® D18-components are shown in CRAWLSTER-YELLOW –also available in TUNING-RED and POLISHED-BLACK.
The crawlster®D18 TUNING-KIT contains all components needed for the conversion:
with all 1/18
RC4WD Gelände Chassis
Irrespective of the series / production date, the newer RC4WD 1/18 MightyMinis units are partly based on different components, regarding...
...the thread-lengths at the damper legs:
...the shape of the upper damper RodEnds:
The crawlster®D18 TUNING-KIT creates the decisive conditions for the fundamental optimization of dampers + steering
Here are 2 additional TIPS
for further improvements ....
...for the cautious
Mount the front/lower links"inside"
to get more freedom of steering -
exspecially when using more voluminous tires
such as the Goodyear WRANGLER MT/R 1
...for the brave ones
Carefully* (!), laterally obliquely milled out the bone slits with a cutting disc in the lower area by about 1-1.5 mm – brings another, visibly improved steering angle (* at your own risk)
