Default losi 8ight-T 2.0 servo saver spring

why is it ill-advised to run the servo saver spring that comes on the 8T 2.0 race roller..?? too stiff..??? and, is the "recommended" replacement spring(black, i believe) the one that came on the original 8-T...(p/n losa 4407)...???

I run the 2.0 spring with 0 problems. The problem comes from the factory settings of the saver. The 2.0 spring is stiffer so it needs to be set looser than the 1.0 spring does. Mine is set a few turns below the bottom of the tube and works perfectly. Setting it looser causes another problem however, of the nut backing off easily. You just have to make sure to loctight it pretty good. The best bet is probably the 1.0 Truggy spring.
