The threaded shocks are a nice to have feature however the Traxxas Big bores are silky smooth compared to the stock plastic shocks. I've seen a lot of these that if they didn't have the correct o-ring in the collar constantly back up. The chances of you ever using the threaded collars is slim as most people run the thick preload spacer on the rear and nothing up front. Looks cool, but functionally irrelevant.

the good thing about these new integy ones is they use ALL stock hardware including the bladders (no oring), and there threaded so no spacers to mess with or have to bring with you for different tracks, i took my caps off after a couple of races to see if there was any oil above the bladder and it was dry as a bone

The REAL test will be if they don't leak and how long the oil stays clean.

I found the Losi 1/10 scale truck shocks work great. Easy to mount and lots of tuning options.

..and they are threaded.
