Can anyone give me an idea of what spring rate i should buy for my traxxas summit? And also is it easier to buy a whole new shock and change it out or just change the springs?
Well it Depends Are you going to be jumps high or just bashing around the Yard and i would say just the spring if your Stockies are holding up fine but that depends on the style of Driving
its just that it scrapes going over bumps and down gutters and i also have a trailer and it sags when towing that
For a pack of two springs is 6 bucks and then possibly shipping and tax. So how I look at it for 15 bucks on eBay (free ship and no tax) you can get 4 complete shocks with springs and have 2 full sets to play with.
And personally Dbl orange springs front and rear is the way to go.

alright i might look into what you said Keila72, i think it will be easier to just buy another set of shocks, i find on tar with the big tyres and soft suspension there is quite a lot of body roll and it tends to roll over when turning at full speed
I agree keila72, dbl oranges all round are definitely the way to go.
I have dbl orange all round and i wound the preload down about 1cm all round and it virtually reduce squat to nothing but it also still allows a fair bit of articulation when crawling.
Summit; Spartan; Others yet to come
okay thanks i will look into a set
