Well the stock set up is close to the hardest hitting. Silver springs-alum shoes and Gold springs-carbon shoes. I feel like it hits hard enough on outdoor offroad tracks. It all depends on your driving style and track layout. I can't tell you what works best without knowing a lot more factors. You might like all alum. shoes with silver springs. I say go for it. See if you like it. But for me that set up makes the rear end too loose coming off corners. I didn't mean to sound like it wasn't going to work. My bad. Just experiment and find what you like.

I've been running all four aluminum shoes with silver springs, and I think it works great! The truck is already stable and has gobs of traction, and the extra punch is nice when you need it.
