Default 1/8th buggy springs?

I'm looking for more options in 1/8th buggy springs, I've got an OFNA 9.5 buggy that comes with the blue springs stock. I want to set a bit stiffer and a set a bit softer. I know Ofna makes option spring sets but I think that they are too different from stock (like a drastic difference in rates), mabye not? What are you guys running/what do you have in your parts bin?

For 1/8 I run Kyosho Blues on my Hyper and the Mugen Grey on my Mugen.

Go to www.twf8.ws and check out their spring rate tests. They have a listing of a lot of different manufacturer's springs for front and rear with wire dia., # of coils, length and rates all arranged softest to hardest. This will let you find a different spring that is not such a big jump .

Default Springs

What I am goin crazy looking for...and I have checked Ofna and NitroHouse' websites, are part numbers for Ofna (HoBao) black springs. I have a TTR S3, and with the stock springs, I can't get the front ride hieght as low as Id like...so I looked at TWF8 and see that the Ofna black fronts have the same stiffness rating, yet are shorter, so I think they will help in this situation. Anyone that can help, thx
