same reason why people pay the extra $$ to strip the blue and re-ano everything red ...

i think..

it's the 'i gotta have it' syndrome...

Mr. Motek, you know red is where it's at!

I've never seen the need to try the RS springs, seems like they would be too long and make it hard to get ride height.

I'm only using them because I got them at an unbeatable price
Others say they work and they do give a very good balance.
I'll probably try the Alex Racing equivilents sooner or later but my cuda's working well so it's staying as it is.

As mentioned one time before its the color thing .Its just easy to grab them out your pit box . Im sure if alex springs where colored or taged like the black atlas spings they would go over well IMO
