I'm putting a lot of aluminum on my truck and it's getting heavy. The shocks seem overwhelmed. I was looking for an upgrade on shocks something I can buy not too hard to get.
Thanks

What shocks do you presently have?

People seem to be fairly happy with the HPI big bores and there are lots of customization parts out there.

Not sure what I'm running, I'll check when I get home. Are parts available from HPI, they have been hit or miss lately

Those look to be plastic bodied big bore shocks, and BTW running them with that much angle to them sure does make them stiffer, try moving the tops out on the tower and it will soften it up some to absorb landings better along with changing oil to heavier or lighter to tune them...

I am using Integy Big Bore bodies with all HPI internals in them

You can still find these body kits out on E Bay, Amazon and on Integy's site, but they seem to be getting harder to find lately.....

Ya the integy units of some kind are all good, they are all stronger with metal cap's

They also have complete xl piggy back shocks, in two versions

I when for the piggy backs with metal lower joints too, they did need a bit of tuning, but well worth it.

Savage drives like a 1/8 buggy now.
