    I just replaced my stock shocks with these after the shafts bent on mine. It was worth the upgrade from the standpoint that the 5862's come with stronger shafts that are harder to bend and and harder to scuff as well as aluminum caps that won't leak as easy.

    As for dampening performance , I can't comment on whether they are any better because I also changed the shock fluid at the same time. I tried 80wt but that was too stiff so I settled on 50wt. This alone probably helped with shock performance the most.

    They are a better shock then the stock ultra's. Price wise the Traxxas GTR's are a better deal and overall a better performing shock.
