Do the neon looking springs have the same rate as those listed here? For example I have a regular yellow spring, bright or neon yellow spring and a bright or neon yellow short spring. Tamiya springs have always confused me.

Bentley,

Xtreme RC Cars did a great spring rate test in Jul 05 mag.
Each spring was tested for actual rate. (178 springs tested)

I won a set of Team Magic springs as a hand out prize but I never used them because they are listed as 1.3 1.4 1.5 etc... Does anyone have a conversion to LBS?

Those springs are the small ones, designed for rally and the mini. It only has a listing of light(neon orange), medium(neon yellow), hard(royal blue).

But if anyone can shed light on its spring rate would really be nice.
