I'm a newbie and basically learning as I go. Getting started, some advise about upgrades were to wait until something breaks. So, yesterday, a rear shock broke, basically bent. So, I'm looking to upgade to rear shocks. There is a lot of information about Traxxas Big Bore Shocks, but I also found these from Toyz.com, Traxxas Stampede 4x4 Rear Big Bore Red Aluminum Shock Dampers
I like the red shocks the best, they look really cool. But are the shocks from Traxxas better or the same? My intentions were to buy the rears and get the fronts later. Would this work okay? The GPM shocks cost more, but they are aluminum. I was also going to put 50w oil in them. Overall, I'm trying to find out what is a perfect shock setup for bashing, jumping, and having fun.
