    Assume your are talking about shocks ?

    If they are 97mm in length then they should fit with similar mods as the others

    yes shocks, there 104 and 123mm. But are the traxxas big bores a direct fit?

    Cant imagine they fit if they are that length

    Platinum / Ultimate comes with the TRX big bores as standard

    Ok, so that means its a direct swap for the big bores?

    I use Losi 8ight shocks on my Slash. I purchased an adapter kit online which raised the top mounting point. The shocks are silky smooth and very easy to setup. Changing the rebound is a snap compared to traxxas big bores. Never had an issue with the big bores but the 8ight shocks are just easier to setup i.e. refill/bleeding, rebound setting, and threaded for preload setting. And since my other vehicle is a 8ight buggy I have only one kind of shock to deal with. Just my 2 cents.

    Here's an old thread that helped me mod to the losi shocks. It is very smooth and am happy with the upgrade.

    Rc-fan what kind of springs are those. Are those losi fronts all around or front & rears? I would like to get rid of the mounts if they're not needed.
