    I just installed the Traxxas big bores and filled them with 40wt. It made a nice difference over stock boingers.
    However, I plan on trying a heavier oil soon.

    there are some STRC threaded shocks that i just purchased. Havent tried them yet but i would think if you got some different shock oil and maybe different springs it would be a hard to beat setup. After i get them and test them i will let you know how they are.

    but big bores cost more than the STRC threaded shocks. and the STRC's are aluminum as well.

    The big bores and stockers will essentially perform the same. The Big bores are stronger, but they share the same parts that dictate performance.
    Personally I'm a fan of 1/8 buggy shocks. Most fronts will work .

    Hey, I got a Losi XXX-4 Graphite edition collecting dust. I might just have to tear into those springs someday and see if they work.

    I just sized up my Jammin XR CR shocks up to the slash. Looks like the OFNA shocks are a touch too long.

    I am using the pro-line power strokes with great success!

    Much better than the stock or big bores!
    Break it, so you can upgrade it!
