On Corally's site Jason Ertrachter has his setup from last year at Vegas running Rubber tires. IN it he uses HPI red and HPI PInk springs. I am wanting to put this set up on my car but don't have any HPI springs. So I thought "well I can either go buy the HPI springs or I can try to use the Corally springs with the same/similar spring rates." So I went over to HPI's site and found this

Part # Description Suggested Retail Price


6844 2 Pro Linear Spring 13 x 27mm (Red 238 gf/mm) 5.50/pr

6849 2 Pro Linear Spring 13 x 27mm (Pink 272 gf/mm) 5.50/pr

6754 2 Pro Linear Spring 13 x 25mm (Red 432 gf/mm) (Nitro) 6.00/pr

6759 2 Pro Linear Spring 13 x 25mm (Pink 540 gf/mm) (Nitro) 6.00/pr

6835 2 13 x 29 x 1.5mm Red (Progressive) 4.50/pr


and I see more than one listing for red springs and no spring rates that help me (anyone know the conversion from gf/mm to lbs is?). Any ideas? Perhaps Jason you could shed some light on this for me (and Mr. McGoo if I know him like I think I do )

I am well aware of what they do. I just don't have both of them in front of me to see a difference physically.

If some one could post a pic or please tell me. Are there markings to tell which ones are which.

Again I don't have both in front of me I have one or the other and I am trying to figure out what is on my car!

i ll try to explain the block... if you look at the standard from the side , the part that is mounted on the bulkhead and screwed in, is pretty straight across , (same level as the block)
the ultra low when compared from the side, the block is acutally approx. 1-1.5 mm lower than the bulkhead portion. the part for the bulkhead is definately higher than the block from the side..dropping down the hinge pin.(ultra low) basically the ultra low block mounting area sits higher/ above the block looking at it from the side..

when the ultra low is mounted on the car... there is about .5-1mm clearance from chassis to bottom of block.
the standandard shows approx. 1-1.5mm from block to chassis.

hope the helps a little...

need a pic to help clarify.... you can post pic what you got..

I have a compiled spring chart for touring car and although the manufacturers list a certain rate in lbs. for their springs often they are far from that. In my research, I found that THard out of Europe did some spring tests which included HPI springs. Here is what they listed:
HPI Blue 15.29 lbs., Silver 16.91, Pink 17.92,
Gold 19.04, White 20.33, Red 22.41. The only thing is that they might have a different diameter. With some springs like AE or Tamiya, you'll have to turn the shock collars upside down and use retainers like Tamiya, etc. to compensate for the size. If you just want to use Corally springs, just go off the Corally chart, but remember Corally springs tend to be more progessive in their design. Hope this helps. Often the Corally team likkes to try different springs to fine tune their cars. I think Jason used HPi springs again this year, and Chris Tosolini has tried them too. I've tried AE, XRay and Tamiya springs too, like a lot of the other drivers.

Sorry, I only know them by site, and just compare side by side.
