Has anyone tried the Proline 1/10th scale shocks on their D413 yet? Always hated the orange anodizing on the shocks. Makes it hard to make bodies look good unless they are orange, black or white. Just wondering if the Proline shocks are the same quality shocks or if there will be a decrease in performance.

It's probably a lot cheaper to just get your aluminum anodized whatever color you want

Instead of spending all that money on different shocks, why not remove the orange anodizing?

it's awesome that the front shock shafts have been pushed back to mid July now. If anyone has a set they would be willing to sale?

I "think" the b5m rears shafts are the same length as the d413 fronts. But you would need to use a different piston

I'd like to keep them HB. I don't want to have to bit the bullet and buy a whole shock set

Thanks for the heads up. I was going to order some, since it seems they are hard to find.
