Default **Bent shock shaft**

I bent a shock shaft on my WK today and i'm wondering what is a good shock upgrade to go to? Is there another shock that works better? It's a stock chassis, wheel base and axles.

I picked up a set of Axial shocks on ebay, that came ot of an ax10 kit for cheap. Threw on some red super soft springs, and I am loveing them so far.

i bent my too. i'm looking into the rc4wd 100mm scale shocks, cause i'm doing a scale build. you should look into them too. might be a little to pricey though. hope this helps.

i got a set of the stock wk shocks (upgraded to a new chassis and they are too long.) I would be happy to sell them all to you, or just one or two. if you're interested, just drop me a pm

I have a set of the blue RC4WD 117mm scale shocks on my WK. They look sweet but seem to be way too bouncey. Maybe it's the shock oil, maybe it's too stiff of an internal spring. I haven't messed with them yet, so it might be that they need some tuning.

T.D.
