Kyosho hands down. They stay as smooth as new after a long time. Never seem to leak unless you don't build them right. An the bleeding process leaves the shock completely airless.

I LOVE my kyosho shocks... but I would venture to say that Schumacher's shocks are equally as good.

I doubt you'll see many answers besides Kyosho.

Seems like most of the newer big bores are coming pretty close though... Losi, Serpent, Durango

I jumped on the Kyosho bandwagon and have put them on all my vehicles just to maintain consistency.

One negative for Kyosho is that for their trucks they use longer shocks than everyone else so you pretty much have to buy Kyosho springs which is pretty painful to the wallet.

yeah, 20 bucks for two 1/10 springs is a bit ridiculous. I still vote for the kyosho shocks though. I had a set of brand new losi shocks (12mm ones) and brand new, they were not as smooth as a old set of the kyosho small bore velvet shocks.

has anybody tried the tamiya buggy shocks? (of the many many different ones there are)

if they are as good as tc trf's, they might be just as good, or better than the kyosho velvets.

The new TLR 22 2.0 shocks are smooth as silk and more importantly, they don't leak a bit.
