All revo springs are red in color. Go by the numbers.
Look in the Jato manual page 38, look at the sping rates.
Then compare them to the Revo.
Then look here at the Revo spring chart - page 34.
I know pi!

I have the stock revo springs on, and purple springs on the revo, they are color coded just like the jato with a bit of color on the bottom, a great way to get harder shocks for free if you have a revo because it came with 2 sets of springs

I would like to put the red revo springs on also but i believe all the revo springs are heavier. Stock Jatos are 1.1 green in front and 1.4 pink in rear. Revos go from 2.6 to 6.4. Green being 3.5 and pink 5.4. I would think those would be much heavier but i really don't know so i would appreciate some help also.

I used Integy 25lb Blue Revo Spring (http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXLNU0&P=7) never bottom out.

Depends what your using you jato for. I tried the revo springs for racing off road and they had way to much bounce down the stright aways and if I added thicker oil to control it I started breaking shock towers on the jumps.
I went back to jato tans in the rear with a 35 weight to finish the season.
