Teach me about types of shock springs
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Not sure if someone already ask and yes I searched before I thinking of asking this question.
I need to understand how to read shock springs #'s?
I have the standard shock springs for my kyosho zx-5 and I noticed that most zx-5 drivers uses different spring shocks #'s.
There is a
Kyosho Light Yellow Rear Shock Spring (L) (#65)
Kyosho Black Rear Shock Spring (L) (#50)
does it mean the higher the number the strong presure it can take?

Practically yes. For the most part you can follow the color coding Black being the stiffest followed by the yellow. Other manufacturers will have more color coding than others.
As far as the XTM springs are concerned, here's the list from softest to stiffest:
149372 1.3mm Shock Spring (RED)
149370 1.4mm Shock Spring (BLUE)
149366 1.5mm Shock Spring (WHITE)
149363 1.6mm Shock Spring (YELLOW)
149364 1.7mm Shock Spring (BLACK)
Note: This color standard is only for the XTM line whether it be short or long.
