Default Pen spring mod?

Just wondering if anyone uses the pen spring mod, and what your experiences have been?

I just did it, and took it for a drive today. I'm a little hesitant still, the truck seemed to handle a little less predictably..but if you watch
@ 3:00 ... i don't think I could pull a climb like this without the mod.

Lemme know what you guys think / how it's working out for you!

I don't have a crawler but that climb at 3:00 looked impressive.
I like the idea behind the mod too.

The desert lizard shocks have internal springs that can be set up like this, I had a set on my scx10ii that were set up close to full droop.

Why not a mini-t spring upgrade?

Thanks, dude! It's been a lot of fun, definitely. I've got some really great areas to work with around here.
