well i tore out my electronics and took my slash apart to buy some new parts. so i went and bought some rpm arms, aluminum castor blocks, beadlocks, and last of till i get paid some integy piggy back shocks.

i have a question though about the shocks. they are really bouncy and they can't support the weight of my truck very well. i fixed the weight problem by putting the stock spirings on there. but when i fill it with oil do i need to fill the piggy back part full and the shock tube full or what?

you have to fill the shaft first, then cap it and flip it, at the same time, then fill the piggybacks. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!!!

Can you understand what the instructions say? They are kinda weird, but after the first one, it gets a lil easier.

It might be a little stiff. They were for my tmaxx, and the slash is much heavier than it was. I wana see a pic of them on the slash, to see if i wana take em off my tmaxx and put em on it.

k guys i got the oil, charged the batt. and drove it around. i used 60 weight oil.

they are very good shocks considering that there integy. they make it not roll over any more and they look sick. i recomend using stiffer springs though i will be buying the front ones soon

very nice but does it handle like a slash anymore, or is it just a jumper/basher setup?

In and out of my mind.

Changed the ride height big time--how does that affect the handling? I would think the higher CG would detract from the overall feel of the rig.

handles just like it used to but the reason its so high is cuz i moved the bottom of the shock up on the a-arm. you can move it down or up and the shock is adjustable. you can set it any way you want
