    traxxas GTR or proline power stroke

    whats the difference between the two besides brands, and which one is really better or is it preference?

    Get GTR's. PS's are really expensive and that whole 2 spring thingy is pointless

    I got ps with my used slash and really wasn't too impressed with the dual action springs. I took the little ones out and stretched out the big spring. I would stick to the gtr's honestly.
    I have big bores on all my other rigs. What's the difference between gtr's and big bores??

    Not if you know how to buy them.
    You also need extra spring kits, preload springs are all the same, but the tall springs are length specific.

    The "2 spring thingy" works very well IF you know what your doing . I run the GTR's and love them , once I found proper springs, Losi Black if I remember.
    I run the prolines on 3 trucks as they are quite tunable , but you need the extra spring sets



    Do you need the extra tuning for bashing ? Nope, but if you want the suspension working fully the preload springs work great, but take time to understand.
