Dude, he asked for trinity spring rates.

I just marked these springs down to a dollar at the LHS. So I'll look today and let you know for sure.

The Trinity puprle Congo springs are like the Losi orange springs (35lbs.) and the Trinity light blue Congo springs are a little softer then the Losi white springs, but harder then the Losi black springs (27 or 28lbs.).

Ok I'm looking at the springs right now. The yellow says extra stiff .070 and the purple is also extra stiff .065. These are touring car springs. BTW.
