No not yet pal ive got rubber stops inside the shocks and 40wt oil and i used a long m5 screw to attach the big bores (been doing m5 srew in the shock tower for ages works well no more bent shock screws)...i do a lot of really big jumps so i think it could do with extra damping ..ill have see how they hold up I'm not holding my hopes up ....might be surprised tho an it looks cool

Yeah 6s is mental but so much fun :) The reason I asked as there not much choice of lipos out here unless you want to pay stupid prices. Only real choice is hobbyking.

I'm just not happy with the radio box because it dosent match the motor and esc mount i bought some more paint an its a good match to the purple aluminium on the truck ..ive got another radio box i might paint so its the same colour.
