    proline shocks

    Has anybody tried these on a maxx? There just about the same size. a bit pricey though. You can find them a little cheaper than here. I posted this one just because it shows specs.

    i have 2 sets of proline shocks that i use on my slashes. what i can tell you is that the shocks are very responsive and good for racing and tuneability. that being said when i used my slash for big air jumps the c clip that holds the piston ring came off and i broke a rod end. i dont think the prolines are very good for bashing, but for racing you cant beat them. personally i have the traxxas big bores on my e-maxx and they have been great

    Same with me i just wish the shocks where threaded I hate having to change clips.

    I have a set of 1/8 buggy shocks I'm going to try, they are fairly large.

    which 1/8 scale shocks are you going to use and are you going to do 8 or 4 of them?

    I would go for the 80wt as if you mix what you mentioned at 50/50 then its about 75-80wt anyways.
