Default 1/8 Buggy Shocks

Can anyone recommend me some cheap 1/8 buggy shocks for my Inferno Race Spec? I broke the stock plastic shock caps, and don't feel like getting the same plastic shock caps. I want one with Metal shock caps. I know that O'donnell shocks will work, but i can't seem to find some. I'm checking ebay like everyday for it. Would this work? http://www.ebay.com/itm/OFNA-Big-Bor...#ht_500wt_1202
Thanks.

Caster Racing ones would most likely fit. We have the non threaded ones priced very aggressively at the USA store and at Trick-Parts.com

I am using a set of AE RC8BE 16mm shocks on my Inferno VE. I was able to pick up a set on here for $50 and cannot be happier with them. The local 1/8 track has a jump that will send my VE about 8 ft in the air, and I am yat to break anything since installing these RC8 shocks. I know they are a bit more money, but I highly recommend them.

Thanks
