Sure are They stick like crazy. I had to ask a million questions before I actually tried them for myself though

I've thought of building a forced articulation crawler for fun. looks cool and I bet it side hills very well also.

well i got a free set of big bores when i bought my emaxx so i put them on my xtrail chassis with the axial oil that came with the ax10...they are WAY too stiff for mine, my stock ones worked well but they LEAK like crazy...i dont know what to do really, im still trying to figure out what shocks i need to use as well, as far as mounting mine, i just basically ran teh screw directly throw the shock with no kind of sleeve becuase i was testing them out and put spacers on the screw where they need to be spaced off the frame a bit (spacers came with my xtrail kit)

put fuel tubing in the hole on the shock cap. this will alow more articulation than the plastic bushing thing (that comes with the big bores) while keeping it smoother than nothing. trust me, it works. and also i had major problems with the stock shocks leaking too. i got a set of big bores for my scorpion but i dont have the x trail; mine is completely stock.

i'm running the edge chassis. like i said, with the traxxas shock spacers through the caps i was restricting articulation due to no pivot movement. i went with some fuel tubing, replaced the green axial cross bars and problem is solved. plenty of movement on the upper side now. i am also running the 35wt oil included with the ax10 with traxxas red springs and it seems very plush to me.
