Yup,the end is threaded on all the way. I just put the shocks back together, so I can't get a picture now.

It's just the nature of the MINI beast...The front/hood of the body sits on the front shock tower - that's as low as it can go...and you can still fit a barbies head in that wheel well gap...Ha, ha, ha...It's cool man - just pop your shocks off and take a picture of it slammed - then pop them back on and run that thing until the tires split at the seams...

Hey guys I though the Tamiya Super Slick 63s are 60 millimeter in size but wanted to make sure before ordering some. Is that right or are they only 55 millimeter.
Thanks

Can someone give me a step by step on what to do?
You still need to keep the normal black thick tubing in the shock and that stays the normal length as per the manual.

The piece of clear tubing and black o-ring on the shock shaft will then run inside the black rubber tubing and this will keep the damping, make sure to the grease it up.

And it should reduce the length of the overall shock by about 5mm.

hopefully this helps clear it up, unless it didn't need clearing up in which case just ignore it

Lee,

Need not worry should u use that esc for next weekend's race. For the 5 min heat, it wont reach the COV even on 3200 LiPo running on Tamiya Sport Tuned. But be very extra careful on ur timing for the mains... i normally pit after 15 min on a 3200. 4000 should add a bit more runtime

see ya at the race. it should be a blast....!

edwintklee,

Just go out, enjoy yourself and drive the tyres off your mini.

Make sure that you be smooth and have your radio setup correctly.

Later

Calvin.
