    What length are the springs that come with the big bore shocks?

    I am thinking of trying some stiffer Losi springs as I really dislike the traxxas offerings...

    I have a pair of VG racing but they are almost too stiff and seem to be "bigger" than the top/bottom holders to where it actually popped over the bottom holder once.

    Does anyone know which size I need to order for front/rear?

    I see there are 2, 2.5 and 2.75 inches available.

    Thanks

    The Traxxas Big Bore shock progressive springs are 2.3" front and 2.8" rear.

    I also bought VGracing and was dispointed by how they where long and stiff.... So long that the front springs were just perfect length for rear shocks!!!!

    The best progressive spring I have found so far for my stampede: (I have big bore with stock top/bottom holders)
    Rear: VGracing progressive Front
    Front: Traxxas Springs Rear Progressive +20% Blue 6868


    I bought many spring, some where too long, many were too short, but I finally found them. And they are perfect!!!! Stiffness is perfect, length is perfect (I still can put preload to adjust the height.)

    Hmmm. This may be perfect. I have all those shocks as well so I will try this setup. Thanks for the idea.

    Just did this. May be awhile before I can test it as I had to sent a bent driveshaft to Tekno to replace.
