What springs will fit these shocks? Any truggy spring? And does anyone know the rate of the yellow and blue springs? Thanks for the setup guys, just trying to get my suspension dialed in

I have not heard if any others will interchange. You may want to try tekno truggy springs.

Just an FYI, the F8T pro kit has been upgraded. It is now coming with captured CVD's at all four corners. Also includes the same bling as the EX-1.5R buggy has received. Great weight distribution and great handling on dual lipo packs.

The RTR model is a great package as well. It's built with a few more plastic pieces and comes with a 1800kv motor and 80 amp esc. It has rear dog bone drive shafts instead of CVD's.

Just about any truggy spring will work with the Caster truggy. I used to run the blue caster ones on mine..

I ordered the tekno green springs for my truggy, the rears were back ordered but I got the fronts on and put 45w oil in the shocks. I couldn't get my truck to maintain ride height with the blue springs but it seems to be perfect now. I'll have to wait on some track time to decide if I need to go thicker on the oil or not.
