I've got the hpi bridgestones in soft and medium on the way. I will give a report after I run them.

Started the fgx build this morning. not too bad but the shocks leak. anyone else have this problem? I used the kit oil and associated green slime but they still leak.
My shocks have leaked like crazy since new. Ordered rebuild kits and while putting new rings in I think I noticed the problem. There is a Sharp flashing on the spacer that goes between the o rings. I never noticed it before since that part of the shock is already assembled. I think the o ring was hanging up on that flashing. Once cleaned up the shocks seem to seal better but I won't know for sure until I drive it again.
