Dunno the part number for the hpi springs but they are definitely a harder spring rate than the kit 2015 springs.

HPI Silvers are not the ultimate spring. It is just what people default to as that is what they see on the pro's cars.
Depending on the level of the grip you may not want such a hard spring.
Back to back on my low grip track, the kit springs felt nicer, had a better lap time and was nicer on tires than HPI Silver.

What handling attributes are you trying to achieve?

Dont forget that geometry plays a big role in what springs are required.
Are you using the correct kit positions on the arms? Front on the tab side outer, rear on the non tab side outer position. This with the kit springs especially on the rear is quite soft already.

Make sure you have built the car to kit settings, nearly every 2015 kit i have seen people build has the rear arms in the wrong shock position

Like i said above, most people will just look at pics of Volker's Yokomo or Reinhard's Tammy with HPI Silver springs and say that's what they need to run, without actually trying other options. We dont all race on prepared tracks.
