Default Calling UMG10 owners!

Simple question, if you built your stock shocks, do they leak?
Just watched a video on the UMG10, since I have bought one but not built it yet and he says the material feels different (plastics) and the stock shocks so far are not leaking like Axials normally do.
I've been unsure which shocks to buy for it, SSD, King, Pro-line etc... So I'm curious if it's worth building the stock ones or not.
Do yours leak or have they been good?

This was my thoughts, but new plastic, perhaps a slightly different/better design, could it be possible they actually don't.

So true. Either that or they've leaked so much oil out that there's no more to leak.

That is only true when you not use them or build....

Do any of you own one though and own these new shocks?
I'm not saying they are fixed, but it's come from a pretty reliable source, he posted the video back in early May, so have asked for some follow up after more use, time will tell I guess, if he does get back to me.

Just built a set. The plastic doesn't seem any different to me, but the aluminum bodies do make a significant difference over the plastic versions. Pretty nice shocks actually, titanium coated shafts, teflon pistons, clamping spring collars... not bad overall.

I built this set with green slime on all the O-rings and teflon tape on the threads. Seems to work well on my plastic shocks, should be at least as good on the aluminum versions

Unsure if mine are alloy or plastic to be honest, not unpacked the kit yet, might just give them a try, it's not the end of the world if they leak, I'll just buy another set, probably SSDs, if they do, I fancy trying the SSDs out anyway.

These are not my shocks, I built them for someone else but I have had excellent luck with the aluminum icons in the past. I've got 16 of them in use, they're all leak free. It's all in how you build them

Aluminum or plastic bodies, they are the same 10 year old shocks. Yes they leak. I didn't even build mine for my Cherokee kit. Straight into the trash. Get some Traxxas 90mm GTS shocks or some big bores.
