Anyone have any idea what the 3 springs that are available from tamiya for the super short big bore shocks are rated at?

Tamiya has no tension values. Even colour codes between different spring types (long/short/normal diameter/big diameter) are no reference.

Most of us use therefore Xray or SMJ springs for SSBB, when it comes to professional racing. SMJ for example come as matched pairs.

I personally use SMJ on my 419XR.
With SMJ you have to differ between linear and progressive springs.

For me SMJ progressive purple-front and red-rear was a good starting point.
