Needless to say t-maxx shocks don't hold much. Shoot big bore shocks don't hold much. Now the shocks on the LST, Shesh!

Default just can't win

well i reoiled the shocks and while doing it i couldn't get enough pressure on the shock mounting screws so i ended up breaking the shock towers with out knowing it. so i put some appoxy on it and ran it. then i put it in reverse and swiched it accidentilly. tore the gears in the tranny. s lot of fun otherwise. anyone have links to cheap shock towers and or transmission gears?
