Yes, with the same results. Their either has to be an insert for use with the plastic shock caps or they must only be for use with the aluminum shock caps.

That part above is the only thing listed on AE's parts page that even looks like it might work.

Default shock slop issues

You can always use a piece of rubber/vinyl fuel hose till u find or order the right part. I mean if u need something temporally it's better than nothing

Would the Avid/Schelle shock bushings work?

The avid ones are to small of a diameter to fit.

Off topic, but are these the same company? I thought coach left Avid to do his own thing yet his stuff looks just like avid.

Just got back from 2 hours of practice at the track. Car is dialed perfectly, I love this thing! Perfect balance between under and oversteer. Flies in the air perfect, nose pitches down just a hair so you land perfectly flat on the jumps.

Started with Kody Numedhal's set up, then went 30w in the rear shocks, took out the spacers from the rear inside ball studs and moved the rear hubs all the way forward. Battery is all the way back and I put a 1/2 oz of weight on the servo to give it a hair more steering.
