Default would losi big bore shocks fit on mbx5T?

Have anyone tried this with success? Losi 8ight big bores shocks on mbx5t. These are losi 8ight and not 8ight T. I am not sure if the 8ight and 8ight T shocks are different.

thx

the losi shocks are to short, your best bet would be the jammin big bores, or the mbx6 shocks

TQ shocks will also fit. I'm running them on my Kyosho ST-RR, just using the rear shafts up front for a bit more lenght. You can find them online for about $68 for the complete set of 4 @ rcprocenter.net. Check it out, and good luck!

actually no they will not. Me and a friend tried them. The rears are too short. The TQ racing SX8 shocks fit perfect and work great on the MBX5T http://holeshothobbies.com/index.php...products_id=84. They come complete with springs, standoffs and all screws and nuts.
