    GTS springs on Big Bores?

    Do GTS springs fit on big bores? I heard someone on RCCrawler say that I'm skeptical though.
    Jumping: maneuver and pray it won't break.

    What are GTS Springs? Who makes them? Or did you mean Traxxas GTR Springs?

    GTS shocks are what is used on the TRX-4/6:

    OP: I do not not know if they work on the Big Bores. Aren't GTS springs longer? If you find out, let us know

    Good luck!

    Cool. Good to know. I didn't know this. You learn something new everyday.

    I would say they won't fit. Big bores are wider than the GTS shocks.

    Here's a size comparison of the GTS shocks with Ultrashock springs:

    (The ultrashocks that come stock with the Slash has the same width as the big bores)

    It's possible the GTS spring would fit on GTR shocks but on Big Bores, no way! Do you know the diameter of the GTS shock spring?

    I say they would just barely fit the big bores shocks
    I think theyre smaller than the ultrashocks

    I dont think they will fit. The spring perches may not be up to the task of keeping the spring on the shock body. I may be wrong but that is my guess.
