What part broke exactly and how long have you been running that combo? I have a feeling that raising it up with those Losi 8ight shocks might make the angles too steep for it to truely handle it... I noticed that when I put longer shocks on my stampede I broke joints more often. And I run it with VXL and 3s lipo so it puts as much power down as your slash. Most of the time my slipper is locked as well...

I broke part # 1951. I have ran the vxl with losi shocks for a while with no problems until now. The losi shocks settle about where the stock ones do but just a hair higher.

How did it break? And how long have you been running strong brushless in there? Because parts wear out and break... And if the arms can drop further than with the stock shocks the MIP CVDs might not work... They might not be long enough if the truck has extra travel. But then again you can always limit the travel on them so you still have the feel of the shock but the travel of the stock shocks...

I think i will try the cvd kit. But should i get the ones with the red retainers on them or the ones without the red retainers.

Ok i just got the FLM cvds installed and they fit pretty well with the losi 8ight shocks. When i lift the truck up they look like they are about ready to fall out but stay in by just a little bit. They held up to the first run with my vxl on 11.1v 30c lipo. If anyone is looking to use this combo get two pairs of losi 8ight front shocks for all four corners because the rears are pretty long. I just put front springs on the rear shocks to make it sit lower.

You might want to limit the shocks just a little to be sure that the exles wont fall out... If you want to limit them. Get your old shocks and fully extend the rear one, then fully extend the rear ones on the truck now. see how much of a difference it is and cut that length out of fuel line or something like that. Put it inside the shock under the piston and bingo, shock limiter.

I had to do that on my buggy when I put shocks in it. It works nicely. You can also use really small pieces to limit upwards travel and as a cushion for big jumps. Most of my shocks have a small bit of it on there.

And thanks man. Worked hard on it.
