Default good deal?

im wanting to get the traxxas big bore shocks for my t maxx. well the best price i see them for are around $60 shipped. i found some on ebay used, but like new for half the price. thats if no one bids,lol. but i messaged him and he said they are the traxxas big bores. but he dont know what weight shock oil is in them. thats no big deal. and i have my own blue dual rate springs i would put on. so im asking for opinions, if im the only one that bids, or even if it goes to $40, good deal?

Whats the problem with the stockers? Are you blowing off the caps? You could pick up some aluminum caps dirt cheap if you lose out on that auction.

no nothing wrong with the ultras. i mean i havent had it to the track yet to do some bigger jumping. they are just better all around with the tin shafts and aluminum. there an item thats on my list, but i dont need them right now. i mean the stocks are fine for now. i just thought if i found them for a good deal, i would pick them up. but i missed the auction. they sold for $36 i believe. i put them on my rustler to when the stock ones were fine. i put the traxxas blue aluminum caps on. thats what im gonna do with the big bores for my maxx to. but only i'll need 8 blue caps.
