Kind of a rookie question, but does spring rate used directly correlate to the vehicles total weight and the desired ride height? Or is there much more that it directly effects?

more along the lines of the track surface and desired feel you are needing. Because rc cars donít change weight (too often) itís not like you would need a specific spring for a weight thatís universal to any car because every cars shock has different lengths and set ups that vary. This is why using other brand shock springs are not a good idea unless they have same characteristics and lengths that correlate to your cars.

What springs do is simple, if your buggy is bottoming off jump faces/landings and running low in the stroke more then normal because the tracks higher speed or maybe higher grip you go stiffer spring to keep the back or front from slamming, some would probably say bump up the shock oil first in this situation but for the sake of your question this is another route. When tracks are slower speed and start getting bumps a lot of drivers will throw softer springs in to help the car stay planted to the ground better and not popping off bumps at slow speeds, again some would go down on oils first but in a quick fix springs do a lot in this situation as lower speed the spring change have more affect.
