Default Hot Racing 120mm air shocks?

Has anyone used the HR 120mm air shocks? Just wondering if they work or not? You can find them on ebay for <$20 and they look clean.

Thanks for the link. My rig is just for fun so I believe they will work just fine. As soon as they come in and I install them, I'll write a review on them.

OK, finally got my shocks installed. They are not as smooth as a comp shocks but I was not expecting them to be. I did put a little bit of 3 in 1 oil in them and it help out a lot. I like how clean and simple they look though. They also are a little to long at full extension. They seemed to bind the driveshaft so I put some spacers in them so they would not reach full extension. The springs supplied are not hard enough for my liking, but I'm sure I will be able to find some springs at the locale diy that will fit my liking. All in all I like them. Not to expensive , and they have a simple look to them.
