Default Losi 8 Buggy Shock Springs

Hello to all. I am new to the hobby and have a quick question about shock springs. I noticed that losi does not carry many colored shock springs for the buggy.

My question is can I use a different manufacture to replace the stock springs. Losi stock springs are 15mm but I want to replace them with some OFNA 16mm shock springs they are the white ones. Will they fit and how much play do I have when selecting size to fit my losi 8 rtr buggy?

I don't know how many springs you're looking for but Losi makes about 13 springs to fit the 8ight/T so..... otherwise i don't know about the OFNA ones fitting the 8ight shocks.

Losi sells plenty of different springs for tuning....most Pro kits come with a couple extra pairs as well.

This is the link to Mike Truhe's Nitro Pit setup. once i set my car up this way it was only a few adjustments from track to track. It is super dialed for me.
silver fronts and green rears is about all i run

Here is a link to the rest of the Losi 8ight buggy stuff
