    My car
    Rear: Integy Green springs (from the Rustler 10 pair pack) with 40wt oil
    Front: Losi Green 2" springs with 35wt oil

    My son's car
    Rear: Losi Silver 2.5" springs with 40wt oil
    Front: Losi Silver 2" springs with 35 wt oil

    The oil is AE brand.

    My car has 60g more weight up front (due to lead weights and SRT shock tower) and 60g less at the rear (due to Castle motor) than my son's. His car is much closer to stock. I think my set-up is actually better than my son's but he is actually faster than me on the track (better driver I'm afraid ). Alas money cannot buy me more talent, just more upgrades.

    Ime running some alluminium shock bodies and the guts are from stock slash shocks, running the stock stampede spring dyed red. I run 2 hole pistons in the front and 1 hole pistons in the rear with 40wt shock oil. I run the 1 hole pistons in the rear to help with the trans weight. These are on my pede but same parts.

    They look good and havent bent one yet, total cost of all the new parts was $21 for all 4.
