Default Shocks for an sp2

I hate the stock shocks on my sp2. I have filed and smoothed down the tops of the bodys but it still seems alittle hard on bladders?? I know that ko is coming out with some bigger shocks but it there a good aftermarket shock that is a big bore and not junk. I know alot of people have some luck with the stockers but it still seems like the bladders is still a problematic point of
the car! I am getting frustrated with the car so I am going for different shocks or selling the car and buying mugen or losi! Thanks

It seems that tightening the cap too much is harder on the bladder than anything else. I just tighten mine to be just enough to be snug. No leakage and no blown bladders in both buggy and truggy. (OK, maybe a little tiny, wee bit of oil sneaks out but it's hardly noticable.)

The other problem people cause is overfilling the case and not letting the oil bleed out before tightening the cap.

Now that you mention it, I have to go and change the oil in my stock shocks.
