Default GmAde R1 Shock Suggestions

As the title states, as I am looking to upgrade the stock shocks on my R1. So, what do you think the best aftermarket shocks are for the R1?

Sorry nobody replied to ya, but I dont have an R1, but you probably have the G-Transition shocks on it currently? Droop (90mm) or sprung (100mm) setup? What kind of driving, fast, slow, bouncer, rocky tech crawling....

You can step up to the Gmade XD piggyback series, they are really nice I run some on my crawlers GOM and SCX10 and they work really nice.
Pick a size 93mm or 103 and enjoy.

With my R1 I fought all sorts of issues, Biggest issue was lack of steering. To deal with that I went to tall tires and tall shocks so I could do 4WS.

I succeeded with Ruptures, and Pro Line 5" shocks. It ate drive shafts and portal bearings so I got rid of it. But I learned almost any shocks will fit, 100mm might be sweet and save driveshafts.
