Anybody tell me of some better more heavy duty shocks that I could get. I don't feel like going to the hobby shop (90 miles)since it's so far away and the LHS is a traxxas dealer.BLAH. lol Anyhow Would be great help since I keep shattering the stock in the tubes. Sucks. Those wouldn't be under warrenty would they?

ive done insain jumps in mine and havent done any shocks... something might be setup wrong. put some stronger springs on, make sure your spring chairs are still on.

Yeah everytime I hit a jump. I do a slow drive by just to make sure it's all still straight. After going through everything lastnight I came up with the conclusion the screw ends of the shock shafts are comeing loose. I'll try locktite or something. But after the screw ends are loose It basically ruins the inner tube since everything move crooked inside. Oh-well no biggy. I'm gonna hit the better hobby shop next week see if I can fit some better shocks.

Loads of pics, can email.
I have the high speed gear on, if you use the standard gear all it does is wheel spin, if you use the hs gear, tuned zorst and axial lump you will be blown away with it

Just out of curiousity, what is a stage5 kit. Where do I get it if it helps? Does anyone know if the Ofna hyper7 shocks match up with the havoc. I'm getting tired of busting the stocks out I've gone through 3 complete sets now. I don't really trust myself on building the mugen ones. I tried rebuilding the stocks but when done with them they just wouldn't compress. OPPS. Guess I goofed. I love my havoc but where's all this power I keep hearing about? Do I have to get a Novarossi engine or what? As far as customer service from the Tampa, Fl. office props to ya's and thanks for all the help.

try reading your manual mate, youve got something setup wronge to be going through that many shocks, if you havent got the power you want try tuning it right or running a higher nitro %. i'll asume you havent tuned it right if you cant rebuild a shock or find the cause of why your going through so many.
