This is a set of two optional 112mm Big Bore rear shocks from Hot Bodies. Boost the performance of your 1/8th scale buggy with the all-new Big Bore Shocks from Hot Bodies!
With a larger shock body, wider 1.3 hole pistons and more oil, these Big Bore shocks have vastly improved damping characteristics over standard-size buggy shocks, and the all-new design makes them easier to work on with long times between rebuilds. The shock bodies are threaded for quick changes to the spring preload using a knurled purple-anodized adjustment nut making ride height adjustments easy, and the upper shock bladder helps keep the oil clean and rebound levels consistent. An o-ring sealed, threaded lower cap secures the bottom of the shock, and dual silicone o-rings with a super-soft rubber boot help to prevent contamination from mud and dust. The shock shaft uses a lock nut to keep the 6-hole 1.3mm shock piston in place, and all the necessary mounting hardware is included.
With Hot Bodies Big Bores on your ride, you'll float over the rough stuff and land like a feather after conquering the biggest jumps, so what are you waiting for? Get a set on your buggy!
NOTE: These shocks where originally designed as an upgrade for the Hot Bodies Lightning 2, but they are also a great upgrade for the Hot Bodies D8 when used with the High Mount Rear Shock Tower. After all these are the shocks Atsushi Hara was running on his D8 when he won the Worlds.
