Default Sirio Evo II motor/pipe springs HELP!

HEllo , I have a Sirio Evo II. I have been using large springs that wrap around the motor for a while, but they constantly break. The little ears on the sides of the motor coupled with the motors vibration wer the springs until they break.

I have tried to find the right springs (the two small ones that connect from the pipe to the ears on the motor) but i cant find any! PLEASE HELP!!!

Usually when the springs are breaking, they break right where it clips onto the engine case. After a while the engine case will develop a small burr. If that is your problem then getting a different spring isn't going to fix the problem. Try cleaning up the area with a file and that will probably fix your problem.
