we run softer setup`s really

heavy springs = more friction,more torque,less top speed ,more heat
lighter springs= less torque,less heat ,less friction,more top speed

1/12th cars love green/green spring setup (no need for pulling power ,cars weigh as much as a box of matche`s)

1/10th little different
if you run lighter springs then bed the brushe`s in @2-3 volt 1 minute
to get the brush bed in with out causing brush bounce (bad thing) when you go onto track

also bumby track with light springs does not mix either
why are some motor companies saying lighter springs give you more torque...which is the opposite u just mentioned?

(with splitting hairs on what brush is in use at the time )

You can also very easily "Overspring" a motor depending on track conditions. If the track is smooth (not bumpy) and the layout is very flowing all heavy brush springs normally due is generate heat and cause premature brush wear in some instances. The best thing I've found to do is listen to the motor tuners, they do this for a living, and generally have more real world testing knowledge than most of us can even dream of getting. Right Todd?

I certainly found that to be the case with my current fastest C2 on the CE dyno. The + is like a soft red, but the - is much softer than a standard green.

I'll be hittin the dyno hard tonight to try out a few more weird things.
