mine was like 2200, they are heavy beasts. Even with milled chassis, pucks, etc I only got down to about 2000, which actually felt decent.

You can find the rears pretty easy, but most places are out of stock on the fronts. I got mine from absolute hobbyz. Not sure if they have any left.

What do you need to know? Should build the same as the 4 gear except there's one less gear and the top shaft sticks out the opposite side.

Hit up NorCal Hobbies for both (408) 293-5555
I purchased my SLRC B5M chassis from NorCal. SLRC T5M Chassis is on back order, but they will be able to get you one as soon as they are back

Are you asking for physical weight off the spring or the compression rate? There's a spring rate comparison chart out there that lists every spring. The chart is linked on the first page of the Rb6 forum board.

That chart doesn't seem to show the Kyosho truck springs, just the ones for buggies. I've done some searching for a similar chart with the truck springs but haven't found much.
