if your going for performance out of the shocks, then drop the integy idea. they arent any better than the original plastic ones. get some t4 shocks or something

If someone tried to give me anything aluminum from Integy....... I would give some serious thought to what I could have done to them that makes them hate me so..........If you can't get Big Bores, AE, or Losi shocks, Stick with the plastic ones. Integy is a big step back.

for racing. they are well worth it. they are so smooth and adjustable. for bashing and all the stock is fine. and the stock will do fine in a race, just wont be quit as smooth and you wont be able to adjus tthem to your exact likings
