    Integy springs

    So i have been looking around for a spring set for my rustler and I found the integy msr9 spring kit
    http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXTYD2&P=7
    Has anyone used these with ultra shocks? according to tower they seem to be the right length I just don't know about the width of these. I know many people use the losi springs but I'd just prefer not having to use pre-load spacers to make up for the shorter spring. I'm just wondering if anyone knows if these fit on the ultra shocks. My math seems to say so but i just want to make sure.

    ONLY Integy springs I use were the T8088 and T8087 they are actually quality made parts BUT they are mostly for bashing they are stiff and full length. I have the red on my basher and sometimes run red front and black rear. . The orange ones are just WAY TO STIFF !

    Now if you get into fine tuning for racing then I would get the Losi springs.

    just my $.02

    Did those fit onto normal ultra shocks?
    also Im wondering if anyone has tried the losi 22 springs or is it only the older springs that fit?

    They work great on Ultras.

    The losi ones I use are the 2.0(Front) and 2.5(Rear) length I can't remember the part number but there light blue is there stiffest but is a wonderful spring for our trucks for tuning. If you use it to hit big basher jumps your going to get a ton of belly slap. I have about 3-4 colors from Blue down and somewhere in there the stock whites are about the same as well. I don't have that spring chart stickied but a user on here Mr.Wolf did an awesome spring rate chart comparison.

    Play with your oil weights as well. I use 45wt in both mine.

    The Integy's you posted fit ultra shocks fine. I'm running a set now.

    I'd go with Losi even for bashing, you might as well have a great handling basher than a super stiff jacked up ill-handling ride...

    I also vote for Losi. Are the Integy springs so cheap that buying them makes sense?

    The integy springs are super cheap. $8 per set of 3. Still worth it for bashing though. Can never have enough springs

    Well alot of it is the fact that my lhs doesn't stock losi, but they do have the integy spring kit. So im going to spend the 8 bucks to get the integy because I need new springs to get my car going because somehow all of my other springs are bent and ride on the shock body. but i figure anything is better than 8 year old springs that were always compressed
