You're on TD springs right? If so I'm assuming you mean Dark Blue front?

Yes Durango springs, I have a complete tuning set for both front/rears, I have the Night Blue on now, but will switch to dark blue, possibly dark green.

I remembers seeing a spring chart that had both Losi and Durango springs, does anyone have a link for that?

Uh...Night Blue is 6.02 lb/in. That's the stiffest spring you can get from TD. Way too much front spring. No wonder you say the car bounces.

Honestly, I would start over with the kit everything on setup with 40/35 oil and adjust from there. It's actually a really decent setup for mid to high traction. All you need to do is pick your oil and drive. TD did a really good job on giving you something good to start with.

Took out all the rebound and it drove much better, I did drop the springs and ended up with green front and losi pinks in the back. Gonna run some more tomorrow and play with it a bit more. It's very close thou.

Does anyone know if the Associated Spur will fit into the 210? I have the stock 87 and running 28p and I want to drop it to a 77-79spur. My motor is not even getting warm. (13.5)

You have to ream out the center of an AE spur from what I have heard..Look for the RW spurs, I have a couple 75's if you cant find 'em.

It's not available until the 31st of this month but can be pre-ordered. This would be the best solution since AE spurs and better yet, the JC Silent Speed spurs are readily available.
