    I stole this picture of Fast Eddy's Baja from another forum.. My question is does the baja come with these rear springs or is this an upgrade? If it is an upgrade can someone point me to it? :D Thanks.

    RAMTECH 20% springs, a few of us were able to test them.they are a must have if you run a jetpro or ddm pipe.

    take a set of full of rear shocks and install them inplace of the front shocks, a few of us have done this, and like the outcome.

    If the need arises then I will do that for sure. I just want to have as many tuning options as possible before I go to the track with it. I am a firm believer in fine tuning before racing anything.

    One pair of springs for $9.99. If you want to do both front and back, you have to order 2 sets. They have been working great for me.
