    A linear spring has a steady compression pressure from start to fully compressed.
    A progressive spring produces greater resistance the more its compressed.
    The color is the stiffness of the spring,even the white traxxas shocks come with a color coded dot on them,however losi and others are completely painted the color.

    Can anybody point me to a place where I can find the ratings for various color springs in one place? Any manufacture would work. Just trying to see what all the options are on one chart.

    these fit the stock shocks.

    the ones you received are prbably emaxx springs. they are a little softer than pede springs, not sure on how they compare to the slash progressives...
    Wanna bash at Greenwood Bashplex in Pittsburgh ???
