I know Vato uses piggyback integys and he hasnt had big problems with his... I just rather stay with the single reservoir shocks myself!
You Rangggggggggggggggg? The Big bores are the best! Yes I run the piggys cause they look cool They work real good too. Cost the same as big bores........It's all a matter of taste If you run the Piggys you'll need to make a special front shock tower and the rear a-arms up front to get enough shock positions to let them work right! Here's a 100+ pic to pour through http://www.rcpics.net/member/Vato

You need a few poperotsees to discover your precious gold mine!!! Couple of snap shots and your on the cover of every MAG.

Just make sure you have blue lights to light through your clear chasis....LOL
