HPI silver (6543) = 301.85gf/mm (per petitrc)
Ride Red (28013) = 301.33gf/mm (per calibration certificate I have on mine)

Doesn't get much closer in rate.

They might "feel" different or it might be placebo. Who knows, I've never run both back to back.

I've heard people doing comparisons before, but also seen people get confused between the different ride red (TC big bore, not TC PRO MATCH) and different HPI (not RS4 pro) silver!

Having literally done a back to back over the weekend (and numerous times before), the Ride Pro-match Red's are (IMO) different in how they feel on track, despite the similar rate. It's not the first time I've tried them back to back either. Work well on some tracks, but not on others. I tend to save them for tracks with ripply bumps, or where a slightly more numb initial reaction is needed... Similar, but not the same.

The reds have more mid corner bite but work the tyres harder

How do the VBC Orange 23mm and the TOP 306 springs fit into the mix?

Might as well mention Spec-R 2.7, too.
