    Where to get new springs

    Where is a good place to get different springs for my Summit. The rear end sag under acceleration and when it's just sitting is starting to bug me, what springs should I go with to fix the "sag". I'm new to this so if anybody knows of some good online places to get parts and mods for Summit's I would appreciate it.

    Ok, I just saw that the double orange like the fronts would be good for the back, does it have any negative effects doing this, and where do I get them.

    your local hobby store will likely have some (if they stock traxxas parts)
    I walked into my LHS and picked up two pairs of purple springs.

    all I had to do to get rid of the rear end sag was swap the rear shocks with the front
    anything can be fixed with duct tape and zip ties

    If you switch the sshocks from front to back will it affect performance at all. What was the purpose of traxxas putting such soft springs on the rear.

    I'm running dbl orange front and rear helps to reduce the throttle squat without adding preload and losing flex.The rear used to hang up all the time crawling much better now
