the new "pro spec" shocks look to be very similar to kyosho big bores, i don't see how they could be as good as the kyoshos.

I can assure you they are not discontinued.

They will work on any shock with a 3mm shaft.

Shocks an a rc car cant be that important since Kyosho are "known" to have the best ones, but still Associated with their "not so good" shocks wins alot more races Same goes with Shumacher..
