    Spring choice

    Just installed some 12 ppi spring on my emaxx cause I'm tired of it bottoming out and this was the outcomehttp://i251.photobucket.com/albums/g...862B67BB34.mp4

    Yup, that will do that. It will now ride like a wagon!

    You really should get some softer springs, I do not think you are going to like the way it handles with springs that stiff.

    Look at the AE MGT springs, they come in rates from 4.40, 5.10, 5.95, 6.90lbs in

    It's actually kind fun to drive I don't have to worry about hitting my skid plate. I like to jump the crap out if it so it works well it usually flies like 10 to 15 feet in the air.

    That's some serious lift! I tried installing 8 HD Roll Cage City springs and it bounced pretty well. I have half heavy duty and half progressive rate springs now. Itís been standing up with zero droop and handles great.

    You should look into a heavier shock oil or you'll be bouncing around like a pogo stick.

    I got those 12 ppi springs too. tried them on some bigbores. Never used them. Too stiff IMO. Totally over power the shocks ability to dampen.

    To handle properly over bumps you need a little droop

    Do any of you guys know if these springs are going to be stiffer than the stock white ones?

    The stock red springs are 2.5lbs in spring rate.

    The RC Raven springs are a great improvement over the stock red springs.
