But even extra hard is really soft in reality. Those TC3 (white + yellow) springs are extra hard.

Are there other shock which will fit onto the EVO III - I'd like something like that which I have on my Serpent 705/710 where you can adjust the number of open holes in the piston with a simple twist of the shock shaft.

From what I have heard the Xray-shocks are working this way. But I think you donīt know exactly what piston size you are using then. I like more the fixed pistons.

I had an xray and if you were familiar with the shocks you would know what you were using. wrting it down helps too.

Holy crap! I just figured it out I actually never had a pun intended. Doh! Thanks for the chart though Ling, it has saved many a head scratching session.

Edit: Oh wait, that sounded bad too.

The Golds are the same as the Tamiya 4 spring yellows.

For some reason I cannot get Ding-a-lings chart so I guess I will still use my own...

again.. not sure.. but those are the short springs that came out for the TA04-TRF. ill check my tool box later. bubbles i always carry them with me, let me know if you wanna see. ill be at socal tonight.
Your talkinhg about the on-road springs, not the TRF ones....
Tamiya make three lengths of springs....
The original ones for the TA03 Aluminium shocks.
The onroads for the TA04 TRF shocks
And the TRF short springs that are for the 414M WCR car that used raised blocks....
The TRF short only come in Red, Yellow, Blue and White....
