I believe right around like yellow is 16 and orange is around 19. That might not be the exact but somewhere close.

Yesterday I ran at a different track than I did on Saturday. The car was awesome I made some changes do to the track being extremely hot. The changes from the stock set up was:
Front droop=2.5mm over ride height
Rear droop=2.9mm over ride height
1mm shim under the inner ball stud front and rear.
40wt oil
The only thing else I did was when the track was cool was lean the front shocks in one hole to get a little bit more steering. But when the track was hot I stood them back up to the stock setting cause the car would loosin up..

Serpents Yellow is rated 1.4, which Xray say is 14lbs on their yellow springs...Serpent Orange are 1.7, which Xray says is about 17lbs on theirs?...Xray and serpent have very similar ways of doing things so the spring rats might be the same...I just need to know for sure...any Serpent 710/720 drivers know what spring rates the Serpent yellow and orange?
