Default HPI silver springs

I want to buy the HPI silver springs for my two Tamiya TC's (417v5 and 418) andI can't seem to find the exact part number.

I also read somewhere that there are some new "silver" springs, that no longer are silver, but black, and that is not the same as the old silvers ???

Could someone please write the part number on the HPI silver springs that most uses for their TC's, thanks.

Ride 28013 Red springs feel nearly identical to the HPI silvers but are easier to get. I have both the Rides and HPI Silvers.

HPI silver springs are black in colour.

In the U.K. they are near impossible to find nowadays

6543 is correct, and the coating is now black.

They will be shipping to distributors very soon.

HPI Silver springs can also be found in the spring kit Although that's a really expensive way to get 4 springs as you would have to purchase two kits.

FYI, the HPI silver (silver color) and the black coated springs are not the same, even though the part#s are. Most of the settings you see out there use the old silver colored springs.

The RIDE red springs are pretty close to the original silver, though they are more progressive. Interestingly, the spring rate measured by RSD show that the HPI silver is actually softer than the advertised rate.

Well, the HPI Silvers I ordered had a picture with silver springs on the shop. I just have to see what comes with the mail one of these days.

You will get the black ones.

Only way to get silver silvers is to find a racer that bought the original Cyclone or Pro4 cars. Offer to swap or buy them.

Different how? I've heard this stated many times, but without evidence or details.

+1.

What some people also haven't considered is old springs vs new they do change with age.
