    Shock upgrade

    I broke a shock on my erevo. Thinking of upgrading. Any thoughts on what shocks I should look at? I wasn't unhappy with the performance of the stock shocks. I would like a change of color. Any thoughts?

    Thanks all.

    I just went stock replacement internals for mine. And held up well since. Can get Tin coated shafts that are stronger. And change out springs to make stiffer.

    Know I just stiffer springs on mine but since forgotten what ones and what oil I put in. Thin 45wt. I do lot of jumping off my ramps.

    All on stock shock tower. I use the VDP kit part #5461 I think and run VG racing progressive springs.
