Innovative-RC Front Big Bore Shocks V2
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.
V3 Shock bodys also now have a ultra fine burnished mirror-like finish giving a tough,work-hardened surface finish as fine as 2 micro-inches (0.05 micrometers) translating to giving a silky smooth operation over the entire shock travel distance.

We find we do get asked this question quite often, please use the bellow 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),
