Default New Guy question

Hello RCTECH! Obviously I'm new to the site and sorta noob in the hobby. I got started with the hobby last year in may with a 5th scale Redcat (which I love), and now have 6 RCs of different scales and models. But my question is anyone on this site that has the HPI WR8 flux changed out your stock springs?? Ive seen a video from squirelod where he used the proline power strokes...I really dont wanna use the power stroke just because of the fact(s) that they are pricey and I hate to use the excess semi-greatness of the shocks and springs. All I want is stiffer springs. I would love to pick everyone brain and knowledge about RCs. thank you in advance!!

Basically man... you just gotta find some springs from another MFG that are about the same length and diameter as the WR8 ones and are stiffer. Losi, Associated, Traxxas are just to name a few. If you have a decent Local Hobby Shop you could just pop in and check all kinds of springs out. Hope you find what you are looking for.
