Those are the same reservoir caps that come on the Nemesis and GST. You can pickup a set of 4 brand new on ebay pretty cheap. You would then just have to hope the threads on the caps are the same as your Mugen shocks.

Why would you want to mess with the best shocks around. The Mugen shocks that came with my MBX5T are the best shocks I have ever seen. So Smooth, well made and they already have a large resevoir built into them. Honestly there is no need to add even that extra amount of weight to the Mugen. Besides, they wouldn't make that much of a difference to the shocks performance.

Way back when I had a T-MAXX, I had the Integy shocks with the resevoir on mine because I thought they would make it handle better. All they ended up adding was weight and some bling. Other than that they did very little for the handling.

I would much rather spend the $25 on another bottle of Nitro, than the shock resevoirs.

well properly set-up these shocks at least offer a way to control your rebound. rebound control right now is the number one down fall of r/c shocks. they are not just bling, however i'm not sure the integy's are the best but the proline or the fiorini's are a good choice.
