Default Stiff

Associated tc3 springs are made in heavy rates. I don't think you can fit any onroad spring on a inferno though.I was building a 8th scale dirt oval car and tried that myself.

coil spings work like this
the thicker the gauge the stronger the spring
The number of coils or turns is the progression rate.
less coils means a higher rate or stiffens as its compressed.
you can measure the gauge with calipers.
