Default what shocks are you guys running?

Quick question. I will be upgrading soon because of this major torque twist problem I have. Just wanted to know what works best for you guys so I can narrow down my choices.

I recently installed the GMade Zero shocks and they have been great so far. Also the price is reasonable at $45 for all 4.

Here Are some pics comparing to the stock and installed

Hope this helps

BTW changing shocks will only band-aid your torque twist, not solve it.
Not saying don't get better shocks, it's a great investment, but suspension geometry is the key to reducing twist.

Ditto on the post above mine. Geometry is what produces and fixes torque twist.
On my 2.2 I'm using XR10 shocks, at 50/50. They're easy to find and cheap since everyone upgrades their Xr10. Use the traxxas big bore shock rebuild diaphragms as the stock XR10's are silicon and totally suck at holding a seal.
The droop is controled by internal springs that also act as limiters, and I have Mini T springs outside for upstroke. 70w rear 45w front.

custom length Stock SCX10 shocks TT can be fixed through link geometry and spring/shock oil rates too

Just like the rest of these guys said, it's more about geometry than shocks... However, I'm running the RC4WD 100mm scale shocks on my rig and have nothing to complain about. Theyre awesome!
Good luck in resolving your torque twist issues.

DAMMMMM!!!! my mistake everyone. My mind said torque steer but my fingers typed out torque twist. I got rid of my torque twist problem about a month ago and now this steering problem came out. Its so bad when i go on reverse the wheel will turn almost full right. Going forward is kind of different. If i slightly pull on the trigger its fine but when full throttle itll pull right and turn on it own. Once again my mistake for typing it out wrong.

Are you running a chassis mounted servo?

That would be my guess, and no pan hard bar

Torque twist fix with shocks? I fixed my torque twist by flipping my transmission so that the spur gear faces the front of the car and then swapping out my axle gear for over/under drive.

BTW proline scale shocks in front and stock axial in rear.
