Default Slash GTR Shocks

Any word as to when we can get our hands on the new GTR style shocks from Traxxas?

I talk with a rep @ Traxxas yesterday. He told me it could be as little as 3-4wks and upto a couple of months. So, no accurate time frame.

They are rare, you just need to keep searching. I got lucky.

ALopez,

How do the shocks work for you? I assume you are limited to the pistons that came in the shocks, and those springs, since there aren't any available tuning parts yet.

I have yet to go to a track, but I have been bashing at the local park. They have held up well so far with a couple of packs through them. They bolt up with zero modification and are really smooth. I might change out the oil later on, but I am happy with them so far.

if they are 13mm i would think the springs from the associated sc10 4x4 would work

Just to let you guys know I have been told the losi ten springs are a perfect fit. And I would say go for them they are going to be better shocks than the big bores by far or get some losi SCTE shocks

I would order on Ebay but I will wait til they come off back order from Great Planes and our hobbyshop I work at gets them in. I don't race outside much so not in any hurry.
