Default Tmaxx shock hlp plz

I just had a question about getting shock springs for the t-maxx. I am looking for a set of springs that are heavy enough to handle big jumps, any suggestions on what company,weight or anything? Thanks for all replies.

I find the stock springs soft for my liking, so I changed them too. here you go, I hope this helps:

I personally used the blue "heavy" only set. they are stiff enough for me for all around bashing and small jumps. Since you mentioned big jumps, you might check out the extra and xxtra heavy spring sets.

i like his suggestions, a lot of people upgrade to that 100$ proline suspension kit. i think that is the biggest waste of money ever. its suppose to stop you from bottoming out but i broke so many skids and chassis braces with those shocks from bottoming out. so i went back to the stock shocks with a stiff spring and so far they work great, i found a happy balance of softness to bend to crawl up stuff but they dont bottom out that bad on big jumps. also try a heavy weight shock oil.
