i personally like the way losi shocks are..better than ae anyways..
you could try both....but with the losi shocks you might want to try different thingswith them to see what works the best..
plus i think its 10 times easier to change oil in the losi shocks versus the ae ones.

i have met many people that use losi shocks on there associated car...so it might be something you want to try sometime.

I like the AE shocks much better. My Losi shocks leaked all the time, even after replacing the shock cartidges. I haven't had that problem with my AE shocks.

Yeah, I wouldn't put Losi shocks on a T4. It would completely change up the expected handling. It already drives on edge. The Losi shocks just might throw it off the edge.

Or it might make it better. If you have both on hand just try it out and see which you like best. The pistons in the losi shocks are a better design than AE ones too. You can run a lighter oil without having bottoming problems with the 3 hole pistons that losi uses. The losi pistons will fit into the Associated Shocks too. Oh, yea my losi shocks do not leak problems either. Just make sure to bleed the excess oil out of them correctly and you should not have any problems.

ive run losi shocks on my BJ4 but switched back as it looked better with the AE shocks. The losi shocks did seem to make the car a little more planted but not that much
