Anyone have a similar problem or have any advise I would greatly appreciate it!!!
Lastly, it seems there is a extra 4 orings with the shocks, the top has the cut out bladder type oring, the collars that tread on the body have their normal orings, then there are 4 more that are not mentioned in the manual...they look like ones from the 8ight shocks that could go on the bottom but they are to big, or they could around the top of the shock, but I dont think they are supposed to....LOST!!!


I built mine 3 weeks ago with no issues.
I used the manual and this picture thread on Facebook from Horizon Hobby.
Any time I had a question, it was answered on by the description on facebook.

Jason - that sounds like the right order for the oring part. Did you snug down the plastic cover before putting the shaft through? I like to leave it nice and loose so it can slide in easier past the threaded part of the shaft, and then once in I tighten the plastic shock bottom down. I'm wondering if you might have torn up your orings?

As for the top-end: In the past there have three types. Diaphrams, which seem to no longer be used, then the flat o-rings that sit inside the shock cap, and then orings that sit below the threads on the shock body. I prefer the orings on the shock body - it could be that the kit came with two types to give you options (I don't have the 2.0 kit, I converted).

You headed to ECH on Sat for the ROAR race? I can take a look at it first thing in the AM if so. Also trying to head to Mimis tonight to run there if you wanna stop by.

Sounds like he's got the small shock bottoms as well. I've heard these are still out there. You need to crank the bottoms on with wrenches - this is referenced on the tlr blog spot. There may also have been an extra baggy of shock bottoms included in the kit. The small bottoms work but you have to force them. Once on all the way they are OK

You will want to either take a look at the TLracing blog on the build tips for the shock bottoms you have, and you will also want to contact horizon CS and tell them you need the updated shock caps for the scte 2.0 that they have in California.

As fast as you need. Not many faster and has great torque. My son has a Tenshock 5200 and it's faster but not enough for me to change.
