Default Losi clutch springs

Silver: .040 wire with 30 degree angle
Gold: .040 wire with 25 degree angle
Black: .036 wire with 30 degree angle
Green: .036 wire with 25 degree angle

Took my clutch out that had teo black and two green springs. Given they are dirty and same diameter, i can't tell angle difference by eye and wondering how to measure difference so i can reuse

try cleaning them lolol :-p

The colors are pretty distinctive and most of us can easily tell them apart, unless your colorblind? (no disrespect, just asking the question)

The green looks like a metallic green.

The gold looks more like a metallic yellow. Silver is silver and black well, black lol.

I personally suggest to change them each time you change clutch shoes, The springs do stretch a bit over time. We don't measure the angle.
