what is the point? The stock big bores are very good you don't need four. They put it in the Savage so they can eliminate the 8-shock setup.

I would stick with the 4 shock setup. I have had several trucks with 8 shocks. They look cool, but it's a real pain come time to repair or rebuild them.

X 1,000,000 what they said

Big bores are superior to the 8 shock setups of old. It isn't 2005 anymore.

if your friend wants on ebay I saw a set of 8 from the SS kit that were unbuilt for $20

Personally I like the 8 shock setup more than 4, but that is me.
and being 2005 doesn't have anything to do with what people like

big bores are better in my opinon, you dont see any top notch 1/8 buggies or truggies running 8 shock!
