You won't go wrong it TRF shocks.

A lot of factory drivers,driving other marques also choose to use TRF shocks.

They are the best in the business...

has anyone tried the new serpent RCC shocks? They look pretty nice, and does anyone know about the self bleeding design and how it works?

I got TRF shocks to upgrade my TC4 RTR (no threaded shock bodies) and subsequently also got a JRXS, so I have recently built both the TRF and Losi shocks.

Both are very high quality, but the Losi shocks are eaiser to build and rebuild because of a very clever design element. In particular, the top of the shock rod is hollow and threaded. Losi includes a bolt that threads into the rod that you use to install the lower shock end. This is much easier than using a pliers and rubber pad to hold the shock rod while twisting the shock end onto the rod. Also, the piston attaches to the rod with a threaded bolt, not with e-clips, so changing pistons is much easier.

Again, both are great quality, but if I'm going to be adjustig shock length or changing pistons, I'd prefer the Losi.

They are also a direct fit and the Losi springs work great for carpet on the TC4.

We are working on a shock kit that will include 4 shocks. Should be out soon!!

It is looking like a $70 retail.
