Just oredered a set of those traxxas shocks from ebay yesterday. Can't wait till they arrive. I'm hoping they're a little stiffer than stock. I will miss the blue shocks however cuz I just bought the epx blue flame body. But 8 shocks for $20?! No way I can pass that up!

Also, nitrosportsandrunner , any chance you could put up a few pics of that front bumper you made? I'd like to see it and how it looks. Might give it a try. I'm already wearing out my second stock bumper.

***EDIT*** Nevermind, I just saw your new thread with the RPM bumper. That looks sick!!! I'm trying that for sure.

Right on, I know for 20$ for 8 You can't go wrong! And I haven't had to use the other 4 yet, They hold up really nice and are nice and stiff ( but not to stiff, but almost perfect ) Now When I put Mine on I think I had to use longer screws, Which is a 80cent buy at Your local hardware store.
