Most Tamiya touring car setups are based on the "Hard On-Road Tuned springs" #53440. You'll also see people using single-colour versions of the springs that have been limited edition parts at various times over the years but they are the same rates.
If you are running a Mini then people use the Short springs.
If you don't have to run Tamiya parts most people now run HPI or Yokomo springs on the TRF shocks (with the large diameter retainers), these have a much finer difference between rates.
