    Integy shocks vs stock

    I have a bad habbit of buying every aftermarket part and installing them just because. When I bought my Jato I vowed not to repeat this impulsive bad habbit. $1200 later I had a very heavy, good looking, sloooooow Jato. Over the last two days I have removed alot of it and it has improved performance greatly. One of the biggest improvement was removing the integy piggyback shocks. They were leaking and the rebound was horrible. Has anyone else experienced this with these shocks. Visually they look cool...but personally thats where the fun stops. I posted this because I have seen alot of members with them and was wondering if they have had these problems or if they were able to mess with them and make them as good as the stock ones.

    I have heard only two things about Integy shocks. They look great, and they leak horribly.

    Not to call complete BS for no reason but, joey could you just post a list of jato parts that would even put you in the same ballpark of $3k.

    Ok Ive only been out of the RC world for like a year. But last time I knew you didnt ever even dare buy anything integy unless it was the cooling head guard if you would even trust that to them. If its gunna sit on a shelf yeah Ill give it to ya they got bling. But other than that did they revamp there entire process of making products?

    i had the integy shocks on my jato when i got it and they were all out of fluid and had some spring to them like u wouldnt believe. i just bought some new jato shocks on ebay for like 23 bucks shipped and they work 100% better. o yeah and i bought some shock oil to fill the integy shocks up with and like 10min later it was all leaked out on my floor. the only thing i want to do now is get the revo shocks and ill be set with shocks

    I Have The Integy Piggybacks on both my REVO and JATO and never had any problems with them. The leakage occurs only if you over torque the caps and cause the O rings to distort.
