Weird. I know a lot of people have preordered them. I'd call Tower and speak to someone. I'm sure they can hook it up.

Yes, calling Tower directly works. They can preorder it for you.

For the Reedy race he ran Kyosho yellow/white, which are 75g/mm and 43.6g/mm respectively, which again, isn't covered with the spread of HB springs. Am I missing something with the HB spring ratings?

not sure where those Kyosho spring rates came from but i never fully trust what other companies publish as their spring rates. i have a full set of the Kyosho springs and physically measured their rates. not a theoretical calculation but an actual measurement. for Kyosho orange fronts i got 62.8, Kyo orange rears i measured 39.7. then of course the yellow and other springs are softer.

I pulled it from the links at the bottom of my post. Have you had a batch of production HB Springs to test yet? Any chance you could share your data from the Kyosho Springs and the HB Springs (and any others you might have) so we could compare apples to apples?
