Get these 53876. They are the 1mm low down which will lower your ride height. The car will handle even better.√ You can get them much cheaper.

Do you know if part #53876 will fit on the Tamiya Mini TRF (#54000) shocks?

The only differences on the M-chassis shocks is the length of the rod and bodies. Yes they will fit. I use them.

The adjuster rings on the 54000 threaded shock bodies are plastic though, not alloy. I've found that the plastic adjuster rings tend to move too freely, and adjust themselves during a race, so I've I replaced them with the alloy ones, which have a rubber o-ring inside, and stay in the position you put them in.

I'll check again.

That means you have to buy the rings separately. Dang. What's the part number and how much were they?

No need for the fancy-schmancy rubber ring adjusters. Just put a thin coat of rubber cement (also known as contact cement) on the body threads and let it dry. You can still thread the adjuster back on, but the cement stays a little pliant and acts as a lock for the adjuster, while still permitting you to change the preload. Has worked for me for years.

Last night I had a problem with my rear tires collecting carpet. Of course once they do this, they have no bite. The car works pretty good for the first few minutes and then my handling goes away completely.

I have an M03-M. I am running s-grips in the front and kit tires in the rear. These are fairly new tires, about 3 weeks of racing use. I use "jack the gripper" traction compound. This setup was working good two weeks ago.

I even tried running one heat race with no traction compound on the rear tires and they still had carpet stuck to them when it came off the track.

I cleaned the tires with motor spray before the evenings events, and once more between rounds. Any suggestions?
