Default Does Losi Make 15mm WHITE Shock Springs?

Does anyone know where I can purchase WHITE shock springs for my Losi 8 Buggy RTR. I can only find them for the truggy however cannot find any white springs for the buggy.

LOSA5454
is the white spring for the front (will fit the 8b/8t)

LOSA5460
is the white spring for the back (will fit the 8b/8t)

These springs are a lot stiffer than the stock springs, so it will make it stiffer in the corners. might not turn as well, just warning you.

Fronts and Rears. Not racing at the track yet. I am mostly getting practice on the street. I want to get better at controling before I give racing a try.

Here is what I am planning for my set up as all of the RTR look exactly the same. Tell me what you think?

Part Number Size Rate Color Car Front/Rear
LOSA5450 2.3 4.1 Red T Front
LOSA5451 2.3 4.4 Silver B/T Front
LOSA5452 2.3 4.7 Green B/T Front
LOSA5453 2.3 5 Black B/T Front
LOSA5454 2.3 5.3 White T Front
LOSA5455 2.3 5.6 Grey T Front
LOSA5456 3.1 2.5 Red B/T Rear
LOSA5457 3.1 2.8 Silver B/T Rear
LOSA5458 3.1 3.1 Green B/T Rear
LOSA5459 3.1 3.4 Black T Rear
LOSA5460 3.7 3.7 White T Rear
LOSA5461 3.1 4 Gray T Rear
LOSA5462 3.7 4.3 Purple T Rear

here's a list i made up. I use Silver/Green (f/r)

Reds are almost too soft, unless you run on a very smooth, high grip track IMO

silver green is a good base set up.
