They would all be too soft.. Truggy springs are 5.6 - 6lb range.

I am running the new springs on my truck since DNC. EVO Purple on front and EVO Yellow rear. Just got back from the Silver State race. Ran really good there.

as mentioned this would soften the truggy up a lot especially with the length in the rear shocks being a bit short! Silver state looked to be really bumpy so if your track is the same it may be the hot set up but for the entire set up on normal track would be getting a rear set of buggy springs for the front on a truggy to start with and see what works. Let us know what u feel after testing. Losi eventually may make a truggy set of evo springs but with the focus shifting to a 5.0 who knows. Like I said stick to evo truggy front shock testing, the rear evos are still way short for a truggy, however you could take it a step further and get yourself some Kyosho springs fro the rear to test as Iíve heard they work with buggy, the truck springs may be key. If u do try to put a buggy rear set of evo speings on the front of a truggy make sure u understand spring rates so it can somewhat be stiff enough because length probably wonít be the same.
