After 18+ Months of testing we are pleased to release the Innovative-RC true Big Bore shocks for the HPI Baja 5B & 5T, Innovative-RC 'Big Bore' shocks are purposely built from the ground up using no HPI parts what so ever. Giving a true after market shock with many features over stock shocks...with full spares of every part available.
Starting with a large oversized shock body of 20mm giving a huge volume of oil followed by a 8mm high tensile steel shaft that is precision ground round for a perfect seal in all conditions as opposed to 4mm (RTR) & 6mm (VVC) shafts. no large shock shaft would be complete with full Umbrella/ Oil seals to give the best possible oil seal, making leaks a thing of the past. we have also build other seals with in the shock bottom cap to stop and limit any dirt & sand entering into the shock seals and shock body which is main cause of leaks. so no expensive seal upgrades are needed.
Each shock Cap Contains a bleeder hole for easy quick assemble and bleeding of the shocks once filled with oil removing all air and excess oil quickly and efficiently. While the shock body has a fully adjustable unlimited potion adjust that screws up and down the length of the shock body giving that i deal shock spring set-up for any track or condition that might come up.
Each shocks Spring retainer is full housed on the shock shaft & rose joint meaning the retainer can no longer come loose meaning no more lost or loose spring retainers.
2x Bottom rose joint balls for front mounting - pre installed.
2x top shock mount pivots for Stock mounting (For other mounts please see option extra or contact us).
screws & hardware for mounting front shocks.
Pre install Umbrella/Oil seals for leak free and long life shock operation.
Extra seal protection before oil/umbrella seal to stop sand and find dirt entering seals.
Same length as stock HPI Baja shocks, so direct fit.

We find we do get asked this question quite often, please use the below as a guide line only, as we can not know your driving style and likes but we find it helps most people get started on there way to a set-up they like, also custom pistons can help in shock rebound rates (see shock parts for blank pistons and other piston types)
Silicone shock oil, recommend, 20-35wt front, 25-45wt rear. (~200CPS - 400CPS front, 280CPS - 650 CPS rear),
SOLD IN SETS OF 2. CHOOSE FRONT OR REAR.
