    Burst shock body

    DBXL DDM springs too stiff?

    Hey guys, So I just got my DDM springs yesterday and installed them. They are supposed to be 20% stiffer than stock but they feel much stiffer. The stock shock/spring combo had terrible rebound and wouldn't even level the buggy after the suspension was compressed. Without changing any of the...

    Losi 5ive-T Shock Upgrades

    Hey everyone, I so far ran 2 full tanks of gas through the engine. I bought the truck brand new 2 weeks ago. One thing that has bothered me by the truck is the stock shocks.

    WTB WTB: 5ive T Front Shocks (4)

    Hi All, Looking to buy 4 5ive T front shocks for my DB. I am in Canada so would prefer something in North America. Even a set (2) or (4) that are incomplete and need some parts (i.e. after the big bore upgrade) is fine if the price is right.

    Dbxl shocks question

    Hi guys, why the dbxl uses diff oil instead fo shock oil? i was comparing with a km t1000 truck, and the km compress and rebounds better, more softer and rebounds more quick, looks like it can take and absorve better the bumps, jumps. I changed the diff oil on the shocks from stock 3000 to...
