    I'm assuming you're talking about Pro-Line Powerstrokes. If so, Pro-Line's are 100x better, maybe even 200x...jury is still out on that one. Integys leak and are made of weaker material.

    iv got a question how come we can't bash traxxas parts but can say all we want about other company's? I know from experience that the integy shocks are halfway decent. Not everything they make is junk. I guess if everything they make is junk then no one buys it wonder how there suck a big company then???????????????

    One doesn't need to drink poison to know it's poisonous.

    i hav integy piggybacks and i love em. they've been through alot and they never leak. they take more punishment then the stock 1s. i did the same jumps and i blew 2 stockers(only ones i can compare 2). all i can say is that if u get piggyback use 100 wt oil and use 4 integy springs and 4 stock red springs.

    The thing about integy is that a lot of the time their products aren't cheap and you can get a superior product for the same price if you look hard enough.

    proline and just the best imo. they soak up the little stuff, and do a great job with the big stuff.

    im just saying you should not trash a company or there products unless you have tried the shocks yourself. I know some of there products are not so great but the shocks are decent.

    So, according to you dirtracer0, we should all be forced to go out and purchase a set of MSR5's before we're allowed to comment on them, even if we've heard from reliable resources on multiple occasions that these particular shocks are...less than adequate?

    If this was the case, there would be no point in product reviews, word of mouth, or even these forums. Heck, we might as well just run head first into our LHS with a blindfold on and grab the first five hopups that come into contact with our fingers.

    No but i just really cant stand it how everyone and there brother trashes integy. When I know of a big company that I think is way worse then them. Pretty much refering to there customer service.

    Good choice, they're arguably the best 1/10 shocks for the Maxx...a bit pricey though.

    Could do either, 1/10 is cheaper and easier for lighter trucks, no need for 1/8 really.
