My main reason for my suggestion for ditching plastic coilovers is they heat up over time/laps and flex and get "sloppy". But hell if you're just jumping it off a wood ramp in a flat dirt field then buy a bunch of cheapo plastic coilovers is what I say. I was giving advice at 1st from how I use RC's and not thinking about how you were, my bad dude.
Lol..na ,I abuse my stuff ,but yea ,I know what your saying ,the plastic just gives out ,gets brittle an flexes!

My shocks are a split between stock plastic an aluminum body ,4 plastics ,an 4 aluminum.
Been thinking on out fitting a more longer stroke shock ,like the HPI;s have!

I would run all plastic or all aluminum to keep things consistent and predictable.
