Default Scale Shock Options?

Has anyone found any rad looking scale shocks, that look great, are durable and perform well?

I can find good looking shocks, but not ones that are durable and perform well. By scale, I'm referring to an internally sprung shock or a really nice looking coil-over. Something you'd see on a real Ultra 4 rig. By durable, I mean I can fill them with oil, and drive the vehicle for at least a few months without having to remove them for service.

Pro-Line's Powerstrokes are an example of great durability and performance, but not scale looks. The RC4WD shocks I've tried (King 100mm coil-overs) look pretty darn good, and performed well but lacked durability.

Anyone found the top dog of scale shocks? My guess is that I'Il just have to wait a bit for the market to produce something that checks all of the boxes, but maybe you guys have found some shocks I haven't seen yet. Are the RC4WD King coil-overs the best thing available?

Gmade rsd shocks look the part:

The jury is still out on reliability, but so far so good for me. I've re-valved mine to give proper damping with 30wt oil and two stage action. The stock 2 hole pistons don't give enough damping force for 'go fast' driving.

Thanks! Those RSD shocks do look nice, and the price looks good too.

It looks like I'll have to wait until they produce a set long enough for the rear, as I'd want a matched set for front and rear as my front shocks are visible via the GCM shock tower.
