Losi makes two length springs for the XXX-S. The black, purple, and dark green springs are all 1" in length. THe rest of their springs are 1.15" in length.

My Yokom MR4 Special's springs are all shorter than the shortest Losi's. They look to be around .8" or so.

seaball,

Speedtech sells some Yok springs, by the way I measured mine and they're .88 in length.

As far as the Losis go, the blacks are 25lb/in, the purples are 20lb/in, and the new dark greens are 17.6 lb/in.
