    Ofna LX2 Shocks?

    Has anyone used Ofna LX2 Ultra Shocks front and rear on their slash? By the measurement they look like they will work. They are also very beefy looking and at $20 a pair, cheap too.

    They look awfully close to the D8's and other 16mm shock's. For that price it might be a good idea to try them out.

    I've tried the LX1 shocks on both my 2WD and 4x4 Slash. The difference is the LX1's are 13mm, vs. the LX2's at 16mm. They made a big improvement in handling.

    For the LX1's, the stock yellow springs seem to work perfect for racing....soft enough to where you have to turn the collars down about 4mm. I started with 35-37.5 wt oil in them.

    Yep I have those on my rig. They work great with a little modification, reduce the travel about 1/4 inch with fuel tubing and
    you'll have to mount the rears a little farther our on the a-arm to achieve a level ride.
    Also I'm using the Greg Nuibe adapters but, I pretty sure you could get away without.

    Fronts and rears.....

    Like posted above, you'll need to slip a piece of fuel tubing under the piston to take out a little bit of down travel, but it's not much. I'm using yellow springs front and rear, and can mount them in the same lower hole location as stock.

    Durability wise, they're 1/8th scale shocks.....short of launching your truck into a brick wall at full throttle, you're not likely to do anything that will hurt them. LOL

    Ok, I'll probably be ordering a set. I will however get the lx-2s because I'm building a monster slash. Thanks for the help!

    Do you have a part number or a link to the right ones on the site? I like the fact they are longer I want to run them on the out side mounting holes

    Make sure you can get the right rebuild kits for them before you buy... The ofna buggies change shocks like underwear...
    Whats in my wallet?

    Too late. I bit the bullet and bought a new set of Big Bores on ebay. Got a good deal I couldn't pass up.

    Sounds good. Make sure you post your setup if you install them.

    If they don't work I find one of the best things about our Hobby is the engineering aspect we get to tweak and modify until it does work and to me that's more gratifying than buying apart that fits directly because it fits directly. If that makes any sense to u.


    Sc love!!!

    i figured i'd post here, these shocks are way to big for the slash, they are longer than my Emaxx shocks, so now i'm using them on my Emaxx, these buggies must take a beating, there is a gallon of shock oil in there!
