Default Losi spring rates 8 2.0 /8t 2.0

I am looking for a spring rate chart for the 2.0 buggy and truggy showing softest to hardest. I have searched all over, including the losi site and I can't seem to find it anywhere.

ok here is the page you need that explains the different clutch setups ..they go for truggy and buggy mostly .....as far as rates they are all the same rate ..if im thinking right ....but the degree of the the spring ends are different which give you your different rates ..if you go by the chart i have posted you cant hardly go wrong ..,if you try and match up different manufactureres springs to the losi springs you will have a hard time ..the actual rates and degrees of the springs are listed some where ..i will try and find them for you .....

Default Shock Spring Chart

Someone has been keen enough to produce their own chart
