    What size are the Big Rock Shock shafts & thickness? Length would be nice, but I can handle that, also what piston/oil is stock, its way to stiff to keep wheels planted this way....also theres those Orange springs that French dude put on his big rock, and I saw they worked real well, just cant get a part number, he doesn't respond, want us to watch his videos, and he sits back and collects $$ while we work for a living, would be nice he answered that one simple question... there Team Magic, that I know...this is what I found, but not certain yet, also really wanna find out shock shaft thickness, I CAN BRING ALOT TO THE TABLE W/MY PISTON KNOWLEDGE if I knew what size....im just finishing diffs tonight, I like to order ahead, when immune here, my shock parts would arrive, IN A PERFECT world, thanks in advance

    im assuming these are the stock springs..

    Take a look at the online exploded view (https://www.arrma-rc.com/interactive-exploded-view/AR106017) most of what you are looking for on the stock specs is there.

    Big Rock Stock Shats are Arrma Part #AR330425 2 x 4 x 63mm shock shafts per pack
    Big Rock Stock Springs are Arrma Part #AR330347 2 x 65mm 420gf/mm Shock Springs per pack
    Optional HD Springs are Arrma Part #AR330417 2 x 75mm 317gf/mm Shock Springs per pack

    As for the other stock parts, take a look at Arrma Part #AR330339 Shock Piston Set (sizes and specs are all listed there). The stock oil is the one thing that is not listed on the exploded view and I have never found any other documentation on what Arrma used. If you know that much about shocks, just use your knowledge and go with what you think it needs.

    I don't know that I have ever seen orange Nero or Big Rock springs, but Hot Racing does have Gold, Red, Blue, & White springs all different lengths and compression ratios. I hope they are only having some technical difficulties tonight, but at the time I am writing this post (2/12/18 10:40pm) the Hot Racing website is down. Other wise I would have included part numbers for their springs also. If the site doesn't come back up then ebay would probably be your next best option for finding them.
