Default AE RC10GT shocks question

hi guys~
i was wondering is there any way that i can fit a 1/8 buggy(ofna hyper 7) shocks into the GT shock mount and lower end? because all i do is bashing and big air. and i feel the shocks that came from the kit is too tiny. so there is not a lot of damping to it. or i should just invest some money to buy the threaded shocks, oil and springs for the truck!

thanks for the help and your opinion!

You can do some massive jumps with the standard shocks etc.

We take my mates rc10gt to the push bike track and clear some big douples.

And havent really had any problems.

Maybe if your worried go to harder springs and higher weight oil.

I wouldn't bother getting the threaded shocks. They will be the same as standard. If you are worried about the collars coming off maybe tape them on or use cable ties.

Best of luck .

Post some pics of your big air.

Not a hassal. Hope I helped you out.

One thing you may want to do is bolt the blocks that connect the arms to the chassis, rear. Because the screws come loose all the time. You can put two on the engine side and 1 the other side.
