I have them on my wraith. They are pretty stiff if you build them to the directions so I put in the 4 hole pistons and some 20wt oil to help loosen them up a bit.

ok thanks, i this is not a primary crawling rig, just ordered a 2 speed tranny, going to build it for speed, and crawling, so they might be the right shock for me

I have them with green springs, soft, and IMHO work great with my rig's weight - I removed the red stop rubber bumper, increased the ride of the shocks by unscrewing the uniball and gained 3 more mm ride! Smooth and flexy!

I used the stock springs due to the weight of my Wriath but yeah, they are a pretty nice shock. I'm actually thinking of getting some FT SC10 4x4 big bore rear shocks to try next. They might be the smoothest shock I have ever used and have not leaked a drop in my SC10.

I have them on my Wraith and will be removing the piggy back portion because you unable to adjust top shock mount position without them binding on the frame.


Great shocks they don't leak and the adjustment does function well.

I also have them and the top mount is very loose. Ball seem too small for the top mount hole. Like foxmecx the piggyback bind on the frame especially in the rear.

just a suggestion, rotate your shocks 180 degrees so the reservoir is in the front or forward facing .I have them on my Wraith and only crawl with it and love them!

I also had the issue with the reservoir colliding with something ... However I always found a hole/position/side to accommodate them w/o having to remove the reservoir which works simply great in terms of tuning the shocks' response which is the added value of these shocks IMHO!
