I thought Linger had one on here at one time. Maybe he could repost it, or you could do a search.

Those look to be about right. To know for sure try sending a personal message or something to a user called A-KO. I know he has personally tested many of the tamiya springs.

I think Tim's list is the correct one. Ling Kang Tong ( Tamiya driver extraordinaire) tested them and supplied the "as tested" figures. He also gave figures for Associated, Rayspeed and Yokomo.
