Thats just my guess though...

The stiffer roll bar helped counteract the extra roll in the corner that the softer springs allowed. Although I also allowed more droop, I still used it to manage the weight transfer under acceleration and braking. The final balance of the car was really nice.

The rollbar thickness I used was 1.4mm as it was the thickest I had.
Hara Black is 290, HPI Silvers are just over 300, so they're softer

But the HPI is Linear and the Hara's are progressive. If 290 is the starting force, they will end stiffer than 300. In practice, I've found them the same as the HPI Pinks.

People always say that about Hara springs, but I'm not convinced anything other than the new short springs from the likes of Capricorn/Xray etc are progressive.

Looks like Jones has been a little quiet achiever, releasing a few bling and option parts 4 hole pistons, Delrin steering bushings, 22mm bellcranks, and some small spurs, good for spec classes

http://www.arc-rc.com.tw/products_r10_2013_option.html

I guess my shopping list just got a little bigger
