See: XRAY

XRAY have introduced new sets of front and rear linear springs for the XB4. Front & rear linear springs have been specifically designed for the big-bore shocks. Spring rate is constant during the entire spring compression. Both rear and front linear springs come marked with 2, 3 and 4 DOTS for easy identification. The springs, like all the other XRAY springs, are manually measured, selected and matched into pairs to guarantee precisely equal length and damping characteristics.

HB Racing D418 shock springs

See: HB Racing

HB Racing have introduced new shock springs for the European Champion D418. These rear and front springs allows to fine tune the suspension stiffness for optimal performance. Each spring in tagged with the gF/mm for easy identification. The shock springs are available from 55gF/mm to 75gF/mm for the front and from 30gF/mm to 50gF/mm for the rear and comes as pairs.

TLR 8IGHT 16mm EVO shock springs

Team Losi Racing have introduced a new range of 16mm Evo shock springs for the Losi 8IGHT. Manufactured using the highest quality materials available, the EVO springs have been preset for high strength, consistency and long life.
