Default shock colors

I was just wondering what the different shock spring colors mean? I have a XXX-T and it kinda soft in the rear when coming off jumps, would like to but=y some stiffer spings but dont have a clue on what color to get. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

You shouldn't need anything stiffer than the Red springs, but it kind of depends on your setup.

Rear Losi truck/buggy springs by color chart here:

There is a grey spring that is below the white spring and is 1.6 lb I think. I read somewhere Losi was re-releasing the grey springs since some guys were using them for super soft lipo setups without adding weight.

The different colors notate different stiffness/ratings of the springs. To get the right combo for your track and driving style its something you'll have to mess around with. The other thing you'll want to consider is changing the shock oil to slow down the shock action. But I would suggest going back to the Losi website and research set-up sheets, they have some of their team driver set-ups that would help you find what will get you in the ballpark.
