    Im not having much luck finding the actual weight of a Fox 450x2.8 listed anywhere. Anyone know how many grams will be shaved off by swapping it out for a RCS Ti coil of the same size?
    Thanx

    General rule of thumb is 3 in stroke spring is about .5 lbs different steel vs Ti.

    RCS just started selling DHX specific springs that will be a bit lighter than what they have been sellin up till now. There are some weights listed here: http://www.bti-usa.com/public/category/FR/FRSP/RT/RT50?page=1#RT50 I dont know how accurate those weights are, and I am not sure anyone would list the weights for a steel spring...but you could weigh one.

    I posted this before:

    I have since just gone for a 'race only' RCS Ti spring & it came out at 287g for the same weight/stroke/length...

    Can't imagine a 2.8" is going to be much different.
