Sure, you get 280 out of the box, but 25$ for a spring and shims isn't too much to ask.
Enjoy your clones...
Try putting a $25, 400 fps spring in your TM (at least a V2 box) and watch your gears shred, the end of the mechbox snap off, etc... Then let's see how much more money you need to sink into it to repair it.
Stock TM = da shiznit
Upgrading a TM = money pit.
