They are adjustable; have you tried adjusting them? Is it the dampers, or is it the springs which are too hard? Unless the damper adjustment is set towards the hardest setting I'd have thought it is more likely to be the springs being too hard.

Then again, how familiar are you with these type of cars? If you are only comparing them with your average tintop, then it will feel hard!

You don’t hear quite so much about people taking the Nitron option these days. However, and I admit, it is somewhat hearsay, so as ever, take with a pinch of salt... Going back, probably near ten years or so, when Nitrons really peaked, at least as far as feedback on the forum went, quite a few found they weren’t so keen on them (as supplied) on the road, (track was a different matter). 
 

Many  seemed to feel, that on the road, they could feel a bit harsh and overly aggressive, regardless of adjuster position. It could be that back then, I seem to remember they were originally aimed at the Mega bike engined cars, I wonder if the valuing suited very light cars more, or perhaps was just genuinely targeted more at track use?

 

Certainly, I know a few people that had custom valved Nitrons from Meteor Motrosport, that had no such issues. Though they were fairly track focused cars.

Just run them on softest possible say 0 clicks or 1 click from fully soft and see how you go
