    Question Shock upgrade with Trenchers?

    I just upgraded my Maxx brushless to Trenchers, and boy they are MASSIVE!

    My suspension is sagging a bit and doesn't rebound fully. I'm running the totally stock (white spring) shocks.

    Suggestions for a fix? Thanks in advance!

    You could try somthing like these. I think they will fit the stock shocks but not shore. specs on them are in the link. I put some on my bigbores. Much stiffer than stock white springs.

    Thanks guys. I just ordered some of the big bores from Amazon ($60, free shipping) and those gold springs. Should be a much better suspension experience now...

    Rc-fan that suspension looks like it will make that thing smooth on some rough stuff, nice setup there!

    D8 shocks, with 60wt oil. I started with 4, but wasn't really happy with the set up so I added 4 more to support the extra weight.
