Hi, can some body clarify the weights of the RSD spring set?

I always thought they were as follow:
teal 12.5 lb
yellow 13.5 lb
silver 14.5 lb
blue 15.5 lb
silver 16.5 lb

However, I checked the RSD web site and it lists the following:

-11.5 lb/in (Teal)
-12.8 lb/in (Yellow)
-13.6 lb/in (Silver)
-14.4 lb/in (Blue)
-15.5 lb/in (Red)

Which one is correct? I bought one set a while ago and I am planning to buy a second set. Just need to verify the numbers before I hit the order button. Thanks.

The new numbers are the true rated number, the springs have not changed. Just our rating system.

Default New RSD Front Bumper



RSD051 RSD Front Bumper for TC6/RSD6

This is our new bumper, it is made a little more solid and wider than the AE version, and is still very light. It requires a bit of trimming underneath to make it fit right, but it has better coverage over the front wheels and is harder. Since it has more coverage it also does not allow the body to flex as much in collisions, which prevents the front fenders tucking into the front wheels, which prolongs the life of your TC's body.

I just fixed it. The links were mixed up. The Carpet set-up is labeled as Mike's Hobby Shop - Carrolton, TX. It used Blue Front and Green Rear springs.

I just tried to install the DCJs when I recognised that I forgot to order the roll pins (Raaaaah!). Maybe you can add a complete pack to your store (for i..... like me).
Now I have ro ask if there is a shim needed between the roll pin and the ball bearing?

I can vouch for the design of these bumpers... they are pretty wicked pieces.

Thanks. Going to place an order tonight when I get home.

Just to clarify one final detail, do these new numbers correspond to the AE spring rates? For example, since the AE silvers are 14.5 lb/in and RSD blues are 14.4 lb/in, the AE silver springs would be a close equivalent to the RSD blue springs?

The springs have not changed, just our rating system.

Below are the new rates:
-RSD Teal 11.5
-AE Green 11.6
-RSD Yellow 12.8
-RSD Silver 13.6
-RSD Green 14.0
-RSD Blue 14.4
-AE Silver 14.5
-RSD Red 15.5
-RSD Purple 16.4
-AE Blue 16.6

Keep in mind, these are average for the springs and that the springs from AE to RSD might be similar in rate, however they will behave differently as AE uses different size wire for their springs than we do. Right now, all of our springs are made of 1.4mm wire, AE uses different sizes for different springs.
From a couple pages back. This list is the "true rate" for all the springs on the list

RSD6 Conversion kits are back in stock.

They now include the V3 Bell Crank Systems. These are further refined for quicker, smoother steering response.
