Questions?? Losi 8 servo saver is weak?

Hey, guys. So I have a losi 8 1.0 and I'm just wondering if there are any options for servo saver springs. The stock one seems just a little weak.. big bumps sometimes knock my wheels off track when they really shouldn't.

Of course it's well cleaned and adjusted correctly. just wondering if there are options for stiffer springs.

-Jeff

yeah I did read somewhere that some pros were using the 8T 1.0 springs in their buggy setups. Anyone else have good experience with this?

a lot of guys around here were running 1.0 spring in the 2.0 orig saver. all the 1.0 springs bug&trug are same and 2.0 b&t are same. if you run 2.0 spring back it off so that its functioning properly and put threadlock on it

This is not true, the 1.0 truggy spring is harder then the 1.0 buggy spring.
The old hot setup was to put the truggy spring in the buggy.

Since changing my 2.0 truggy spring to the 1.0 truggy spring in Feb. I have not broken a servo saver.
