The numbers off the box are "item 49293**5800" Thats the numbers off a blue set of TRF shocks. I got them off ebay for less than 50.00. The associated shocks with the bladder caps would probably be just as good and easier to get parts for. If you get them run a piston with one more hole and 10w more on the oil to match up with the associateds. It took me 2 weeks to figure that all out. But the TRF shocks work sweet and are easy to maintain.

I used associated ends and spring cups on mine and it matches up well. And associated springs work great on them.

Default TC3 with TRF shocks

Some say you may not notice the difference when you switch from AE to Tamiya Shocks. What I noticed is the car felt more plush, could not realy explain it but for a novice like me, it did make a difference.
Look!

Have any of you used that new heat sink with the fan? I know Associated made one, but I've never seen anyone use it.

I run a fan on all my cars, I don't know if it helps any real amount, but I like the idea. Also, I don't run any heatsink, it seems to do little in keeping the armature cooler for me.
