I do not understand why you tips serpent yellows that are 29lbs...

... the stock spring should be :

front stock spring 20lbs ( TU1812 soft or TU1816 hard ...I do not know who refer these weights )
rear stock spring 17lbs ( TU1814 soft or TU1818 hard ...I do not know who refer these weights )

then serpent yellows is not softer then front stock spring...

thats assuming you use stock rear springs which are too soft. my setups use stiffer rear springs like the Serpent black which is harder than the serpent yellows. or you could go with the TeamC ultra hard rears and hard fronts, either way you want the front spring one step softer than the rear.

Try ...

I use these alot. They should be able to help you out.

Do look out for the V3 and V2 variants on the chassis's. They are different.
