Default D8 Big Bores on an RC8?

Any body tried it or thought about it? I did search but did not really get any helpful info.

I don't think it will work because the D8 uses the same shocks on all 4 corners. But i could be wrong, maybe someone has tried it?

AE big bore shocks and spring sets are already out. I have them on my RC8 haven't got to race it yet have test run it only. It does make a handle better. D8 shocks are way to short especially for the rear shocks

Yeah, I was having a time trying to find somewhere that had the fronts and rears and springs in stock. Finally pieced it all together and got em ordered.

I bought my kit about 3 months ago, but O-well. Small price to pay for a hop up for a buggy if you like it and plan on sticking with it.

A-Main Hobbies has the 16x29 Front AE BB shock sets in stock right now! Oddly, they are out of the 16x38 rear shocks. Lots of places have the rears in stock, as they are the same on the truggy. Could probably find them in fleabay even. The fronts have been the hard ones to find. A-Main even has the Ofna white and blue springs in stock.

Cool, I was a little off on Tower's Price. Cant wait to get em on and run.

That was my biggest problem. I wanted to order it all from one place and not have to pay shipping from different places.

Haha " No shock for You!".


Great, how many 1.1mm holes do we have to drill in these? Did you order the Jammin springs? Blu and white= shiiiney.
