    You can adjust the preload or get stiffer springs. A lot off ppl run the Dbl orange springs.

    EBay. There about 5 bucks or you can buy a full set of summit shocks and springs for about 20.

    If you are posting "want ads" you should do so in the proper forum, the market place:
    http://traxxas.com/forums/forumdispl...4-Market-Place

    I have taken nearly all of the squat out of the stock shocks. Aftermarket shocks will have the exact same amount of squat if set up the exact same as stock... it is the suspension design that creates the squat, not the shocks.

    Here is how mine are set up:

    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    No need for new shocks, get some double orange spring and you'll be thanking yourself. Also, there aren't any good setups for running an brushless motor on 3s.
    This is a signature.

    Yeah... especially since the stock Summit runs off from 4S power.
    3S would be a downgrade... even in brushless form.

    Stock summit shock bodies are about the best and smoothest you can get. No need to replace.
    If the squat is your problem, I agree with others, get some dbl orange springs and be done with it.
