    Would they really make a big difference? Maybe a little little bit smoother but I think most of us wouldn't even feel it..

    Maybe... I don't know yet.

    At first glance, they seem lighter. I gonna post a review on MyRCBox as soon as I have tested them

    I am interested in hearing how these work. I already have a ton of money in shocks and springs alone. Why not shafts as well?

    I run the Avid springs and love them. I also have the factoryone-rc.com shock bushings and they really help with getting the buggy more consistent.

    What spring cups and shock collars are you using?
    I might go with the Avid too.

    I have used both the Ghea collars and Avids. I prefer the Ghea product but they both work fine. The bottom spring cups are for a Losi 22. The car isn't in front of me but I believe I have red front and yellow rear on it and I run the short pack.

    So have you got a chance to try these out? Because I just dont see $70 in just shafts helping out much.

    I noticed they are a little smoother after assembling. I didn't run the buggy yet because I filled the shocks with wrong oil weight.... I feel so newbie :)
