    haven't heard/seen anything yet, but if hpi were making one i know it would blow every other aftermarket shock out of the water.

    Why would it blow all the aftermarket shocks out of the water? Thats like saying now that hpi have got the pipe on the market all the aftermarket pipes will go away.

    becuase all hpi will do with the shocks is steal the best parts from each manufactur then produce a shock set very cheaply in china to undercut the other compenys

    LOL!! I think HPI spends allot more time designing things than you are considering.
    If HPI is making a new one it didn't just come about and the last 30 days.

    ?confused?...Would you rather an overpriced, inferior design?

    Itís obvious that the shocks could be stronger. Yeah, I have bent shock shafts before but only after jumping with no intentions for a safe landing.

    Anyway, the new SS will be coming with updated shocks that I have yet to damage in testingÖbelieve you me, I have tried. I drive my Baja like it isnít mine, because it isnít!
