Default Spring color and setup

What is a good spring color for front and rear on a ntc3... I run on a smooth asphault track... A few bumps here and there but overall pretty level.... What is a good way to gauge if you need higher weight springs or lower.. Also do you want higher weight in front or rear... Thanks

usually the response you get for springs and tires is ask other racers what they are using

Thanks man,,, I have a spring kit coming so I will just play around with them... So do you prefer stiffer or softer springs.. What do you have front and rear and what are track conditions that you run

When I ran the Ntc3 I ran Copper fronts and red in the rear. If your running on smooth surface you can go with a little stiffer spring. Maybe copper front and rear
