Default Buggy Champ/SS Re-Re shock mods ?

Anyone know which coil over oil shocks will fit with little to no mods required ?? After something that is simple, show me your photos too if you can ! Got one to build at the end of august.

Thank you sir, but the text says they will not work with the re-re's. Need original dampers I believe, trying to keep parts count down .

Ya, sorry about that. Noticed after I posted it.

Best bet would be to check the size that comes with it stock and go from there. Choices of coil-overs is large.

Here is my build of a vintage SS

http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/sho...=sand+scorcher

Skip to pg 9. I used the Tamiya "GB01 Aeration Oil Filled Dampers". I had to drill a hole in the rear roll cage to mount the rear shock. Fronts bolted right on. I used the Tamiya Tuning Springs on the front, the HARD ones. I got the Team CRP Tuning springs in, but havent tried them on the rear yet

These shocks pretty much bolt on, just need a stiffer spring in the back. I think other companies make shocks this exact size for alot cheaper then the Tamiya brand ones, BUT IMO the Tamiya ones look great and are super smooth Just gotta put stiffer springs on the rear, or run a LIPO

I thought the Re-Re shocks were the same as the original ones.
