    From what I read, the castle sct sv3/3800kv combo wasn't great for 3S use. You'd likely be better off getting a 3665-3670 ~3000kv motor and either sticking with the vxl-3s esc or throwing a max10 sct...

    I'm not sure. I ran 25% byrons in my 3.3's without messing with shims. I just ran a OS LC4 (medium) plug with it.

    Heavier weight springs typically have less coils of a thicker wire. Although, 1.210lb vs 1.450lb may be difficult to see a thickness difference without a micrometer.
