Default BLACK SPRINGS

Ok, I have some springs with no tags on them and all mixed together. Is there a chart or list somewhere that will tell me what the diameter is for which # spring?

Speaking of green Type-Rs, it's ready to roll, so my other two Type-Rs are now for sale. I've got a roller with enough spare parts to get a Losi-noob up and running, as well as my current 17.5 car that I'll sell HOT off the track this weekend. Both cars are in great working order, no bent metal parts, no cracked plastic parts, all straight and 100% ballistic. PM me for info.

Oh, Mr. Sharpe owns the green machine !!, If the cars you are selling are the ones you were racing on sunday , no question they are worth the asking price!

Posts some pics of the greenie please!?!?!??

Just put together a Losi still working on set-up , but enjoying it quickly!

Yes, I had to grind the bulkheads for a little more clearance. Also trim the top plate for clearance for the connector wires.
