Do i adjust the spring or is it something else? Also, to make it tighter you make the springs tight?

Usually there is some type of tension nut on the underside of the pedal.. you loosen the top nut towards the spring then tighten the bottom nut on the underside until it is tight... at least that's how it works with my old tamas.
I like mine really tight.

Right....the more tension you put on the spring...the tighter the pedal gets. (more resistance)
