    I think the traxxas stock shocks are not made for much abuse, all plastic. What were they thinking?

    They're actually decently designed but need reinforcement in the shock caps if they want to have they plastic.
    I reject your reality, and blow it up with C4.

    I bet if they gave the cap 3-4 more threads that the plastic would be strong enouph!

    I put big bore xxL on the rear, then I robbed the rear shocks off of my old rc10gt to put on the front of my rusty. its working great.
