ECX specs steel links for the Gen2, which helps concentrate mass down low for a sure-footed feel on the trail (and improved strength, of course). The plastic-body shocks are shared with the first-gen Barrage and Doomsday, and ECX does a good job on the shock build—they’re smooth and quiet right out of the box. Extra holes in the chassis rails allow the shock towers to be repositioned with wheelbase changes, if you want to get creative.
ECX does a good job of assembling the plastic oil-filled shocks. 51
