Default Springs

When I was buying springs I wanted a Gamma 306mm 17.1lb. I ordered a Beta 306mm 17.1lb by mistake. Whats the difference in spring poundage? I can't tell by the markings on the spring if it's a Gamma or Beta. Can anyone clarify this for me?

I tried a few more things on my car last night and had it working very nicely indeed. Rather than list everything I've posted my setup here

I found the car is extremely responsive to RC changes, e.g at 2.5mm under the camber link at the front the car was a bit understeery, 3.5 had a lot more grip but a bit too much roll, and 3mm was just right.

I see your running on a med grip track. Wondering if you have tried shorter camber links yet?

17.5 is 11sec laps so it's not too bad

It's probably low grip in US terms, but nope I haven't tried any other link positions yet
