I'm running the stock shocks with the 4 hole 1.3 pistons I drilled 2 holes in the pistons and I'm running losi 55wt oil with dark blue springs. on a bumpy bluegrove track the truck was dialed.

I am running the same setup as powerhouse, 808 rear shocks all the way around with the losi arm standoffs for the lower mounting position.

Default xt8 big bore

right guys finally got to test my xt8 with caster big bore on a bumpy trek where i live.


used blue springs all around. 40wt rear and 40wt plus top up 50wt ( which probably makes it abut 45wt).

I am not a pro and usually will have to pick my car up 3-4 x in an hour or practice.

my god , the drive was amazing. completed so many laps with no running to the track.

really had a good time and feel real lucky got my truggy to run so well.


pm me if u need more info

they are bigger than the stock XT8 shocks. The 16mm is the width of the body. Stock Xray is like 13mm or somewhere in that area. I would recommend the 808 shocks over the Jammin

KANAIKID, you need this part LOSA1723, think amainhobbies have them, unfortunatly you have to buy the whole set with rear arms (you dont need losi arms)
also you can use team associated big bores rc8t.they perfectly fit ASC89338,ASC89346,ASC89083,ASC89082

hope this helps
