is there any way to use this kind of setup with yellow springs, or is it kinda impossible to exchange out the springs currently on it with anything else and have it still work anywhere near that well?

You could certainly try. It won't be ideal, but it should still perform quite well. You could also use larger/heavier tires for more weight on the axles and, thus, an easier time flexing with hard yellow shocks.

the two biggest issues ive had with these triangulated 4 link setups are that the vehicle doesnt support itself very well in regards to tilting because the spring geometry is always far enough off that it causes the vehicle to flop side to side with little resistance, and the other issue is axle wrap. youve snuck around both of these problems by having a negative unsprung weight thanks to that body style and the motor-on-axle setup, so i guess ill have to study your design a little more and figure out how to optimize it for the massive heavy trail rig chassis i always end up making.

thanks!
