Neat, but pricey.

Since taildrgfun's plane is pictured with them installed, I'd like to hear the pilot's viewpoint. How'd they do, Steve?

I have TK1 shocks on mt SS and I'm friends with Tony but at this point I have Rage gear on my HLDR because I bought it before I even met Tony. I really want to try the TK1 on my HLDR soon. Not saying anything bad about the Rage gear either, I like it. It's like propellors, I want to know what is the very best for the way I fly, and also to be able to help people who buy kits or planes from us to get the best set-up for them.
