Default 9 or 10 pound shock spring?

anyone know of a touring car shock spring that is around 9-10lbs? I found tamiya red at 11lbs but need it softer

I think Custom Works silvers are 9lbs but they might be a bit long. Also I have a bunch of Silva springs that go from around 11 all the way down to around 6.

I am pretty sure AE has a TC spring that is like 8 lbs. I think its green.


Nope, I was wrong, its a 12 pounder.

Losi XXX-S springs will work, but the spring might shift around on the upper and lower spring perches (unless you're using Losi shocks)...

The shock springs that come with the Cyclone S RTR are roughly 8-9 lbs. I have a set that I use from time to time if I need a softer spring.

HPI/HB SILVER springs are 16lbs. Pretty firm actually. Look at the chart posted earlier as proof.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Actually, there are 2 silver HPI springs. I think you're referring to the Pro4/Cyclone spring, which is 16.9 lbs. HPI part #6825, on the other hand, is an 8.6 lb. spring. If you search online for "HPI 6825", you'll find several suppliers that have the part in stock...
