Anyway this is what i came up with, you guys may think its ridiculous, and im not one to put thing on my cars just for looks but this has a bit of function, protects the shock bodies and can easily be replaced. Turned out kinda cool, and by the way animal balloons are by far the best shock boots!

I'm not into cosmetics but that looks bada$$. Where did you get it from?

Thanks,yeah im not a big cosmetic guy either but the shocks just looked nasty plus this will keep the spring from rubbing directly against the shock body. I was actually picking up oil and filter for my truck at the local Autozone and i seen this stuff. It was in the "go fast" isle. Close to the NOS stickers and the skull shift knobs! LOL

Any of you guys try the Fioroni chassis? I bought a used MP9 with a Fioroni chassis from one of the members here. I have been running it for a while now and it's time to replaced. A new Fioroni is pricey and I wasn't sure if its worth it or if I should just try a stock one. Or try some other brand.

Is this due to the small price difference or performance?

If you are OK to wait 5 to 15 days for delivery you can check in Europe stores.
