Personally i staid with the plastics they work great. I think there also a little smoother than the alloys. If you just want aluminum shocks the Xray ones would be the brand to go with.

I havew yet to bend a shock shaft or break plastic shocks in a race.. doesn't mean it cant happen. usually the biggest problem people have is threading the cap on. The AL shocks may last longer into the main before getting air in them. I havent tested them myself.. but plastics are just fine.. I would spend the money on tires and go practice or race more.. lol

cheers

The plastic shocks are good for cool and warm weather, but the aluminum shocks have a tendancy to feel inconsistant in hot weather. I run both, depending on the weather as to which one I run.

who is that? I would say A, but thats a little to cocky for my style.. I would imagine that the regulars would be there, salvin, chris, dj, ralph, palo... Not sure I can stay with any of those guys.. the others are unknowns to me.. We will see. if your not pitting for someone when I am on the stand and nigel and the boys are busy. you think you would have time for some fueling? lol

Your a comodian aren't ya. Never got the car to work till I got more time on it in SOCAL. Come down here and race mr 3 posts on RC tech. And don't you have something better to do like post in the Kyosho forum? and I am pretty sure I had a buncha A main visits there.. like all the races but ONE. And last week at CP was workin my bump up running there.. so Lets see what ya got mr talks alot. And thanks for stating the obvious, also known as what I JUST SAID> I don't think I can run with the pro's.. damn your slow on the uptake, i hope you can drive faster than you catch on. and that could possibly be the dumbest picture i have EVER seen on RC tech lol. I am flying to winternats next week. I would love for you to show up and see what ya got. If ya don't have the sack then shut it. I don't feel like listening to 12 year olds right now. I really hope you were one of the other teams that ran the three hour enduro, like the team magic car? You think your a world champ driver? Just cause your mom increased your allowance so you could get a RRR doesn't mean anything in the big kids world. And guess what, RC isn't my whole world. an Example is tomorrow I fly to colorado to see my woman, I know you will be busy at Vallejo RC playing with the other kids. Grow up dude.

WOW.... a little sensitive are we?

I'll be bringing 2 cars to the track with me when I come down to mechanic. Backups for two drivers.

First, learn english. Second if you aren't part of the conversation... Shut the f%^k up. I was joking with james, so your two cents aren't needed. Third, if your grown act like it. Fourth, seeing all the spelling errors in your post makes me laugh. Anyhow, I am off to do something called work. Something your ass probably doesn't know shit about. And yeah, when I raced the car like 4 times everyone else is going to be faster jackass. I work in motorsports so its freegin rare that I could make RC race weekends. And I sure as sh!t am not in the mood to listen to some third rate chump talk shit on a computer. Cause obviously since I have never talked to you in person, that means ya didn't have the sack to talk shit then. So since you failed to have the balls to say somethin rude then. I suggest you go back to moms house and play with your toys some more, cause your acting like a child.
