    Mostly stock truck with Proline wide track and 2.8 trenchers.. currently running the + 20% traxxas springs.. It handles good. But i still have to run to much preload as far as im concerned??? WHat are you guys running for springs and oil on you MT setups?? THanks guys!

    I use Losi Blue springs on my big bores with stock fluids. I have them in the top outer and bottom inner holes.
    My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...

    I also run losi blue springs on my sl4sh MT, with 45 weight shock oil both front and back. I do have quite a bit of pre-load as well. Recently I purchased the swaybar kit and that has made the truck handle quite a bit better in my opinion. I bash mostly on pavement and in my neighborhood etc...

    Wish I could. I'm in the middle of a complete tear down and rebuild. I don't have any recent pics with that set up.
