    Question shock question??

    hey guys I just bought my e maxx a couple days ago and ive already had to upgrade most of my parts to
    rpm, but just today i went out to a construction site and jumped it a couple times and blew of my shock caps. Now i wanted to know is it better to just buy the aluminum caps or just buy the big bore shocks instead?

    If you're on a budget or you just like to keep costs down, I'd go with Big Bore caps on the stock shock bodies; those are what I run on my E-Maxx. If you're looking for some good looking shocks and smoother shock action, the Big Bores are great choice. I have a set of Big Bore shocks on my E-Stampede, and they've been great.

    Did you guys change the springs on the big bores? I'm using ten t shocks but they seem to soft for the rig. I have heavy springs on them also. Thinking about just getting big bores

    I did change out springs, my big bores with two large batteries in the chassis were nearly collapsed.

    Sent from a Galaxy S3, far....far away.
