I use a set of front shocks on the rear of my car, the rears will work also, but you'll need a lot of spring spacers. Get pistons with the smallest holes you can find. They work better than thick oil.

I am also looking for shocks for the ST-1/EB4.

I am wondering if I use the front EB4 buggy shocks if they will work for front and back. Can anyone tell me the size difference between the GT2 shocks and buggy shocks, if there is any? Thanks.

R2 - Looks very good. What body is that? On a DM-1 correct?

Also I like the black rims on one side and white on the other ........ does it help you know if it is coming or going???

it's a prototype not in production, the wheels were "Does it look better with Black or White wheels?" you decide.

It's on a DM-1 spec.

I like that body - Hopefully this class takes off and there will be more offerings in that dept. Looks great!

And one vote for black wheels
