Thanks, I know the grading in relationship to each other, I just want to know the rates though so I can compare them to Ride / HPI's etc

i.e RideRed = 301gmf/mm Tamiya Red = ???

No info yet on that, though they do feel similar to the old Red's and Yellow's.
When Tamiya release that info I'm sure Kentech will post for us per usual....

You might be waiting for a while... Tamiya never publish spring rates for their springs. They are only ever published by people who have actually tested the springs themselves.

Does anybody know what the overall shock length should be once completely done. The manual doesn't say. Im sure as long as they're equal it won't matter. But an exact length of what they should be would be nice if someone knows

Yep, I know. Hopefully I will get some numbers this weekend. They seem to feel very much like the ride springs although I'm sure they are not them.

Quick set up question's.

My current set up has 3mm spacers under the upper arm (rear) ball connectors but I'm currently running 1mm under the front connectors. On the rear I also have 3mm spacers under the ball connector on the hub. Is it better to have the 3mm spacers on both the front and rear or is it ok the way I have it set up?
Also does anyone have suggestions on how to tune the sway bars? I have the fronts pretty well tuned but on the rear when I lift up on the left arm I get about 1/4 inch play on the right arm but when I lift up on the right arm the left arm has over 1/2 inch of travel no matter what I try I can't seem to get rid of this excessive play on the left.
