To all the guys that are running G-Made, did you all get the 103? Anyone tried 93 for lower stance? Thanks

They are two different worlds.
The G-made are stiffer, and have a lot more dampening. They are more along the bashing and not crawling route. Perfect for high speed bashing and sand-paws.
The RC4WD kings however, are soft, and allow for a lot of flex and droop setup. I prefer these to my use, wich is mostly low speed trailing. If you are going bashing or use sand-paws, these are not the shocks for you. These shocks allows you to take a different and more challenging route compared to G-made.
Wait, are those the 110mm or the 100mm ones?

I love the G made as well, but good luck finding them. I put them on my one Wraith and have been calling everyone to try and get some for my other one and know one has them in stock. You can order them on eBay but they won't give you a shipping date.

I ordered a set of the Gmade piggybacks off Ebay and had them in 3 weeks, I like how they are adjustable, I like mine a bit on the soft side, but would like a tad stiffer springs, no leaks so far, I hear about leaking shocks all the time, I'm new to crawlers but have had many RC cars in the past, my Tmaxx leaked all the time, I really like the price of the Gmade, under $70 shipped for 4 shocks, I wish they made them in a 115 or 120mm the way I have mine set up just setting still in saggs the shocks about 3/8" looks nice but needs more ground clearance.

Have u guys found rebuild kits for your gmade shocks yet? Was wanting the king 110mm but everyone is out, was going to say screw it and order the gmade piggybacks but can't find a rebuild kit for them anywhere.

I'm rocking the Kings myself. Simply because they were 110s. I wish gmade made the piggybacks in 110. But still thinking bout getting them anyways. Worse case I'll put them on my Honcho .... I crawl most of the time, so the gmades may be overkill for me. I had to install bumpstops on my Kings also, the servo horn hit the diff cover and shattered some servo gears ... Would have been nice to control that with the gmades vs adding bumpstops in my Kings ...

I've been running Gmade 104mm zero's for about two months now. I can't say anything bad about them.

Gmade piggy backs were nothing but a pain in my butt, slowly leaked constantly and I could never keep the dampening the same on all 4 corners. So I tried modding, rebuilt them even though they were brand new, added an extra o-ring to the seal pack where the shaft exits which made it better, but then that leaded to the reservoirs leaking around the adjustable allen bolt for the dampening adjuster. I gave up on them and just use them for mock up now on projects. And I own the King scale 110mm piggy backs from RC4WD, awesome shock that doesn't leak, but lacks the dampening ability because the bore of the shock is so small. And then I own my pride and joy Powerstrokes, ("slash rears" front and rear on the Wraith. 103mm if I'm not mistaken. Unbeatable unless you want to spend the big money on Kyosho Velvets from SuperShafty for $175, ouch!
