    My SCT. came today ,it didn't come from E-bay .I got through a private owner on a local sales list.
    E-bays had too many folks bidding ,an they where a lot of high priced rollers!
    Got this one shipped to my door for $220.00!.....:Grin::Grin:

    The traxxas stock shocks sucky sucky!.....BLAH

    The shocks are puney an don't seem long enough causing chassy slappin like you know!
    The spring aren't tall or stiff enough to ingage in any type of rebound ,you push down
    on the suspension an it wont even pick its own a$$ off the floor....AH ,shame on them!...LOL

    So I had some left over MT shocks springs from my Mgt. ,got those installed ,what a difference!

    This is the stock puney things ,they even got those spacers in there!

    Here is the Ae Mgt. stock spring ,its taller!

    Front done an you can see the difference from the back ,an boy you can feel the difference ,
    it rebounds nice but still soft to absorb the jumps!....

    Here is the rear ,didn't have no blue ones ,but out fitted it with copper ones ,did have to use
    spacers ,maybe relocate shock position will help!
    They rebound nice too!

    Now I got to make me some body risers ,I have lift the body up some ,as I don't want
    the wheels to bite my new body!
    This is what I will use ,an if this doesn't work in durability ,then I will use
    the thicker solid stock aluminum!...

    I was able to upload vid.,its been a while an forgot my password ,they had to E-mail me to verify!
    This vid will show how bad the stock shocks are ,they did have plenty of fluid in them ,the springs
    were just not enough!
    Bare with me ,Im not much into narrating vids!...

    Well ,I got the body mounted ,I put the decals on a bit ago ,I will take pics tomorrow
    in the light!
    I got to give everything a good wipe down ,an perhaps change the color of that red
    around the wheel ,im not too fond of that ,probably change it to a matte black or a
    dark smoke gray!
