12-3/8"s with a 2-1/2" ground clearance, but I will be raising it up a little, that is a little low for around here.

Thanks, Sorry about that, there is so much to list that I was bound to miss something, LOL!!!! I am not sure if they are Evader specific, but I do know they are about a 3.5" Duratrax shocks and for $20 a set you can't beat them, they are nice and smooth. They are the DTXC9003 model.

Hell yes! they are some great shocks! I've been running them for years on my Stampedes, T & E Maxxs', rustler etc. I also ran them on my AX-10.

You can do the shock mod by cutting the top off and drilling a hole in the top of the body and using a screw thru the hole to attach a rod end.

I didn't really want to sacrafice the shock bodies incase I wanted to run the shocks on something else... so I came up with this:

Take the ball part out of a Traxxas rod end and put some heat shrink tubing over it and put it in the shock body( you may need to ream the hole on the top of the shock a bit) once it is in there shrink the tubing.
Works pretty well if you dont want to sacrafice the shock body...
The heat shrink tubing will wear away eventually... so you will need to re-do to keep a tight fit in the shock.

Yeah I did the Rod end mod to my Losi Crawler shocks and I just might end up doing that to these.

Just a small update on my build, I am now running VP DH2's up front and SLW V4's in the rear with custom cut panther F400 foams, I also just got a new body, here is a few pics of how it looks now.
