spring rate question
I searched but did not find what I was looking for. If stock springs are 4.9(yellow) front and the rear 5.4(orange) is it possible to use the blue or purple springs with the stock suspension? Are these the same springs that come optional on the ERBE? I am putting a 1518 and heavy batteries and want to avoid the sag.
Thanks in advance
Just downlooaded the manual and they answered the question for me. Thanks Traxxas.
Stock springs are 5.4 double orange front and softer 4.9 double yellow on the rear. I run double orange front and rear. Double striped orange on the rear really helps eliminate the squat on acceleration. Double striped are "Long" springs for more travel. Shock and rocker = combination required.
Dot Color Spring Rate
Silver 28.0 lb/in (4.9 N/mm)
Pink 30.8 lb/in (5.4 N/mm)
Blue 33.7 lb/in (5.9 N/mm)
Purple 36.5 lb/in (6.4 N/mm)
^^ These are shorter and will require preload and will not give you the same travel. Best used with regular rockers and not the long travel ones. Shocks for Summit and E-Revo are the same.
