I'm working on this now. This is where a dual rate spring setup and proper valving will be key.

That probably has more to do with why you flopped than your springs. These machines are heavy, ATV psi don't apply here unless you're in the sand. I run 17-20psi depending on conditions and it feels like its on rails. The lower tire pressure is going to give a lot of side wall roll and squat on hard turns and it will put it on two wheels more than it should. On the flip side of that your shocks need to be right or you'll get beat to death because the you can't use your low tire pressure to compensate a bumpy ride.

Yes, for pretty much everything except sand you should run 15psi or more. I think you'll notice that the handling is crisp and much more reactive. 12psi and less makes the machine feel lazy and sloppy.
