Default RC8 Big Bore Shocks? where to find?

Where can i find some RC8 Big Bore shocks? looked on ebay and there is only one person selling them, are they that rare? Are they worth it?

Is there a different brand of good shock anyone can recommend me for my RC8

Im selling some stuff so i can get a set of 4....

Thanks Guys!!

I had the Hong Nor Big Bores on my RC8, and they were great..

Have the Asso Big Bores now on my SC8 - were pretty plentiful on ebay...

Quality-wise, if I had to choose, I would say the Hong Nors impress me a tiny tad more than the Assos...

I have also been looking to pick up another set for my buggy. Bought a second set for my truggy on the bay pretty cheap. Unless your in a hurry just watch ebay for a while and they turn up. I think the AE big bores are amoung the best out there but its up to you if they are worth it, they are better than the non big bores and if you are serious about racing I would say yes. Since I already have them and just want another set I will be patient and find a good deal rather than pay top $.
