Default shock ?

which shocks would be best for my rustler? the traxxas big bore shocks, or the integy piggy back shocks? the price are around the same.

heres the info on the traxxas big bores-
These fully assembled precision dampers use machined aluminum bodies for consistent action lap after punishing lap, with a hard-anodized finish for extra strength and a "factory works" look. Inside, Teflon®-coated shock bores reduce friction to nearly zero for instant suspension response, and dual silicone X-ring seals provide a perfect seal and super-smooth performance. The shock shafts are also premium-quality, and feature a titanium-nitride coating that resists scuffing, extends wear and reduces friction. The progressive-rate springs provide responsive control for small bumps, with a progressively stiffer rate to absorb harder impacts.

heres the integy piggyback shocks-

FEATURES: Aluminum Construction Threaded Aluminum Shock Bodies Piggyback Shock Oil Reservoir Knurled Spring Rate Adjuster Blue and Gun Metal in Color Aluminum Lower Spring Retainer Fully Assembled 2-Hole Shock Pistons Nylon Ball Ends w/Metal Ball

INCLUDES: Two Fully Assembled Piggyback Shocks Two Blue Springs Two Red Springs Two Shock Mounting Bushings Two 4-hole shock pistons Two Foam Compression Pads

Stick with the Traxxas shocks. They are amazingly smooth, and weigh less due to the lack of the reservoir.

The stock plastic shocks are as good a performer as you're going to find for the rustler, once you've installed the aluminum caps.

Not real bling-y, but they work. Switching to an aluminum shock won't improve performance, and the piggy-backs will worsen it (higher cog).
