    GTS Shock rates?

    Anybody know the conversions for shock rates to lb/in?, like the 0.45 rate shocks, what would they be in lb/in?

    Or is it the same and 0.45 rate=0.45/lb in?

    I'm trying to figure out the lb/in spring rate I need for a build of mine, I've got a lot of TRX4 GTS springs that I can get a feel of how stiff they are, but Traxxas seems to be the only ones using the .45 or .40 rate system, not lb/in.

    Traxxas uses newtons per millimeter so we need to convert that to pounds per inch.

    1 newton/meter is equal to 0.001 N/mm, or 0.0057101471627692 pound/inch.
    1 N/mm to pound/inch = 5.71015 pound/inch

    0.45 rated shocks would convert to 2.569 lb/in
