did you order the shocks yet?
You could try these Tamiya - 53280 are 4 in package and they look better.

funny... I thought the RTR was a really great deal at $275... I couldn't beat that... I can always upgrade the radio and stuff later, and my next one will be a kit anyway so I can give anything I get rid of to my son...

didn't want to plunge $70 for the ceramic, these are the second best they got, and are maintenance free... should work awesome in this application...

Those sure are expensive ballbearings.. LOL!

Any medium weight oil should be fine.. usually the standard setup that comes w/ Tamiya shocks are 30/40 weight.. but you can play w/ the choices, of course..

As mentioned before, the stock ESC is rated for Sport Tuned.. for Super Stock, some claimed that they can get away with it, but use it at your own risk.. it is not officially endorsed by Tamiya..

Thanks!!! no oil comes with those shocks, and most of the ones I am looking at are by weight 100,200,300 etc... what do you recommend front and back??? thanks!!! also, do I need to order any other springs, or will the ones in the shock kit do the trick???
