dang man, i just looked into getting some nice HB shocks, they want $20 for a pair of bodies, $8 for a pair of lower caps, $8 for a pair of upper caps, $3 for shocks parts, $8 for a pair of titanium shock parts, $2 for o-rings, $3 for bladders, $2 for reboudn foams, $2 for shock pistons, $2 for e-clips, then $20 for aluminum spring perches, then another $8 for a pair of spring collars.

I think once you get all of it, cost you at least $100.

I installed the 18T pulleys and longer belts, a must if you're gonna run
17.5,13.5 or 10.5 brushless. The pulleys are OK but I found the front belt to be a little long, there's no adjustment left once the tension is set. If it wasn't such a pain, I'd tear it down again and try a used (stretched) stock belt maybe. Overall though, it's alot easier to deal with the 2.16 ratio for brushless. I also run regularly on a smallish carpet track with foams.

yeah man from the sounds of it, just a set of 4 shock bodies is $40, upper caps $16, lower caps $16, spring perches, $20, springs $10, spring collars $20, even using your old parts still comes out to way over $100 lol.

You could always boil them.

I used the stock 62t and 169t belts and havent ran into any slack or over tensioned issues, good deal!

The diff stickers work great for me and I am racing carpet now. Anything that helps keep my diff working longer is a good thing so I think everybody should give them a try and see for your self.

What I use for a spare set of Shocks are the ones from HPI. They run a small cap, but effectively they are the same in how they feel and function. I can't remember where I got mine, but Speedtech have them listed for $34US (but out of stock).

that is for a pair of HPI shocks, there about $38 and you dont get aluminum spring pirches, or aluminum shock bushings, nor do you get titanium shock shafts. After you get those parts and 2 sets of these your at about $130.
