    I had the Integy Piggybacks on my Digger for a couple months and they started leaking. So I took them to the Grave. They make awesome looking paper weights though.

    Might as well go with the Big Bores or the Proline shocks.

    i bought a pair of integy xsr2 shocks before i read forums. started bass ackwards with this one. springs/rods are nice and appearance looks nice also but refilling or topping up stinks with the screw on top. i read teflon plumbers tape around threads to seal up the leak issue. my question if anyone knows is the xsr2 overflows doesnt come with foam. i cut out a piece of my open cell foam tire inserts to make an insert for them. would the material used be an open cell type material or closed cell? anyone try this to there shocks?

    I have to agree that the two shocks you mentioned above are probably the best shocks you can buy for the pede 4x4!

    tmaxxray757,
    I currently have traxxas big bore strokes on my ped, but if I have a choice between the two, I would get the Proline powerstrokes.
