Gmade Zero Springs

Post  Jayboy74 on Tue Jul 19, 2011 3:04 pm

What is the best soft spring for the Gmade Zero 110mm shockies? Looking for a softer compound spring but cant find a Gmade spring so thought maybe an aftermarket brand will fit?

Anything can be made fit... Wink

There are heaps of manufactures on the market that make springs.

It just depends on how long the stock Gmade ones are and the diameter of the shock as to what ones will fit.

Have a look at Axial's or Losi's range of springs...heap of different rates & lengths.

cheers,

yeah my dilemma being new to the game is knowing what the diameter of the spring is when you buy online, the gmade zeros are a large diameter spring and the stock axials are smaller, when i search for springs they very rarely tell you the diameter of the spring so that i can ensure that they will fit.

I'll keep hunting, i'd like a softer spring for the shockies.

Not stock SCX's springs...AX10 springs...

If you measure the shock and let me know, i can measure up the springs ive got here and let you know which brands fit.

Yeah the axial 70mm, or losi 2.75" should fit...The losi springs are a bit smaller diameter (16mm) but they should clear your shock body. Softest Losi spring is their gold one...

ok might be a facepalm question here, but am i right in assuming that the smaller the pounds per inch the softer the spring?
