I think any todays hard spring will satisfy you.

The Shepherd is most loved and also Xray has a new hard and constand spring.

I would advise you to take a look at the disc springs (conical washers) sold by Hudy, Xray, Parini and others. They do work great. The set mostly comes with 0.4mm and 0.6mm washers, get 2 sets and you can combine them from soft by using all 0.4mm washers to hard with only 0.6mm washers. all in between is made by a combination of 0.4 and 0.6mm washers.

The Shepherd spring seems to be the favorite these days. I still have a couple of the good old Orion springs which are my favorite.

yes I have looked into this one.going to try this one and a few others to see which one suits my driving. I am going to run on a few smaller tracks than I used to run when I lived in NY. I really do miss running ON-ROAD and wish there was more of it here in SC. sorry ATL is way too far. would love to find some guy's to run at a BIGGER place. I run T/C and 1/8 Scale.Mike.
