Are the 'Milky' ones from older cars?

Does this mean it's the solid Blue, white, yellow, red etc that would be on the current cars etc?

Thanks

I've honestly never seen a current setup that uses those springs, so I would assume the solid colours would be your best bet. The Milky springs are available for purchase through RC Mart, though.

Cheers, did you actually measure those springs yourself?

Nope, took the measurements off of the "Universal Spring Chart" on thard.co.uk. From what I've heard they seem to be pretty good.
