Default Piggyback Shocks

I was thinking of installing piggyback shocks on my Stampede. Can someone give me an idea how they work and the benefits of using these. Are big bore shocks a better way to go? I am looking for good handling with the wheels on the ground. I'm not looking for performance on big jumps.

I found the answer....GOOGLE is your friend. In R/C sized models, piggyback shocks are a complete waste of time and money. The oil will never see the kind of heat as in full size vehicles.

It would be a waste of money, I wouldn't put them on my truck if I was given them.

There pretty much isn't any shocks on the market that are better for the Summit than the ones it comes with. If there's one thing Traxxas got right with the E-Revo/Summit it's the shocks.

I think that is due to the bore of the shock bodies and the X seals on the pistons. Not many companies have bested Traxxas in the shock department.
