    Springy spring spring springs! Merv or summit?! Need it low and stiff!

    So I'm after a good road setup for my merv, I have tan springs up front and black in the back. When I have it set low (No or little preload) its still too soft. My question is are the Mini summit spring (Purple or Blue) the same length as the merv ones? and would they be stiff enough?

    Thanks for advice guys, think I'll just give the summit springs a try for now until I can stretch to another set of shocks. Need to be able to swap between an on and off road setup easily!

    Purple summit springs are a little longer than the merv springs.

    the rally springs may be an option if the summit springs are longer than the mervs.

    If you look around for people talking about ace hardware Springs on the mini revo that's what these are. Took a bit of research since ace doesn't seem to carry them any more to find the actual product. You can get them on eBay for dirt cheap, they stiffer than anything else out there IMO and should be the only Springs you ever need.
