Default LOOKING FOR ADVICE

Hey guys,
I just got an RC8 buggy and I'm just wondering if I should spend the money for BIG BORE SHOCKS. Is it worth the money or are the ones that come on it good enough?

Get em! Especially if you run on a track that has large jumps.

You can find Jammins around here for around 65-75 bucks pretty often.

Are you going to be racing or bashing? That would be the biggest question. The stock shocks can be made to work pretty well but the big bores make the rc8 a totally different animal.
