which 8IGHT-E do you have?

If its the RTR, just get the 4.0 shocks and call it a day. Get the shock towers while you're at it as well for tunability.

I would look on eBay and find a set of shocks from someone parting out a car / kit. I like the stock 8ight 4.0 shocks.

Doesnít seem like you can find the 4.0 complete shocks . I donít want to have to go through and find all the parts to make it . Mine is the 8ight-e rtr electric car

Hopefully thereís complete ones I can buy and stick on it. Losi doesnít seem to make any that are complete already . Iíd prefer them to be completely assembled already

Itís gonna be a money pit if you start upgrading the RTR. I went learned the hard way and eventually replaced it with a race kit.

Unfortunately, not going to happen.

I have no clue why TLR stopped offering the shocks in a package deal but now looks like you have to purchase all separate, which really sucks.
