    Here are the traxxas spring weights
    ---Merv Springs
    1.76 orange
    1.92 green
    2.06 tan
    2.22 black

    ---summet springs
    2.77 pink
    2.92 blue
    3.20 purple

    Tan front, black rear, 70k or 80K oil all around seems popular with non-bb. So Id imagine a step up on springs and oil weight would be what you need. Like pink front, blue rear and 80k. I dont use the trx springs so I cant give any input on that but for my driving 80k oil is perfect.

    2 oz is more than enough
    Get pink, blue or purple
    It'll need less preload for and gives a slight more travel
