If you want more snap off the line, you should go with the gold 1.1 springs.
It's pretty simple. The heavier the spring, the more snap (quicker) response when you pull the throttle open. It's the opposite with your clutch shoes. The heaver the shoe, the less snap you have. On my setup, I run 3 OFNA blue aluminum shoes (light) with the 1.1 gold springs (heavy). This combo gives me the most snap for my buggy. Bradly recommends this combo for the CRT Truggy. If you use the 1.0 springs, you'll still have good snap off the line, but it should be a little less abrupt. Using one carbon shoe helps to smooth out your acceleration. What you are basically doing with the different springs and shoes is changing the clutch engagement. The later your clutch engages (Higher RPM Range), the more snap you have off the line. If your clutch engages early (Lower RPM Range), you have a slower response off the line because your engine is making less power.
To sum things up: Heavier springs = Later RPM engagement = More snap (Quickness)
Hope this helps!!
