What kind of tuned spring can I use for these Tamiya cars? I know that
these cars have longer dampers than the other Tamiya touring cars.

I plan to keep using the standard plastic shocks. However when I tried
the on road tuned spring they are too short.

Is there something that I can use besides those TGX progressives? I
would prefer Tamiya hop-ups but any other suggestions are welcomed too!

Thanks
Jon

Correct, TGX and TG10 use longer shocks so regular spring is not long enough
for the installation. Check out this page from Tamiya site
http://www.tamiya.com/english/rc/rcitem/parts/rc54.htm

The onroad tune spring part number 53163 is not for TGX chassis. There are
only 2 spring sets available for the TGX chassis

50623 TGX Damper spring (the ones that comes with model kit)
53280 Progressive force spring, (comes in 3 colors, you have a pair in each
color), red spring is the softest, yellow is the medium and blue is the
hardest.

These are the only hop ups available. I wouldnt recommend other brand spring
as well.
