Actually the design on the ready set shocks isn't like the Short Course truck (similar to velvets) so it should work better. Unless I looked at the wrong picture. I guess we will find out.

The plastic big bore shocks look 1/2way decent. They go together like traxxas shocks...

I would pick up a cheap set of alloy caps for them.
