Hello,
Does anyone knows the value for the torsional rigidity for the spring in stock secondary pulley in aGx9? 
I have the value for 'k' which gives linear force but I'm unable to determine the rigidity when its twists.
Help me out

there are a few different springs available from gaged for that secondary pulley, you will need to provide more details on the spring you have for someone to help you out. I personally don't know the values available. I will reach out to our current team and see if they did some testing on them last year to get those values. 

will report back if I can dig anything up. your likely going to need to devise a torsional test of your own to determine it tho.

We almost need to start a database of specs and details for common parts used by many teams.

our current team has no data on this at the moment. they are planning on determining it in the next few weeks or so. if no one else chimes in, you will need to devise a test
