    Springs @ Oil For Big Bores

    I have the stock oil that came in the truck out of the box with and blue Losi springs in the front and green in the back. It seems to be real soft. Should i change the oil or stiffer springs?

    I tried both - blue and green springs from Losi - to soft for me. I just bought the linear spring sets from Hot Racing (silver in use) and like them very much. I also changed the oils to 42,5WT front (50WT stock) and 32,5WT rear (40WT stock).

    It depends also a little bit on the weight of the car... A big lipo can easily give you 200gr + to a low capacity one... I had driven the blue losi springs a long time with stock chassis, 2C 4200mAh 25c lipo and big motor van and it was ok without big jumps... Now I drive a STRC aluminum chassis and I had to change the springs because of the additional weight.

    What springs are you running and how much weight did it add, I'm thinking about upgrading

    I now have red Tmax springs in back and blue losi springs in front. Changed fluid to 40wt all around. Front is still soft. May just need some prolines up front. Still bottoms the front easy.
    Any other ides?
