I see that some MI2 drivers use the Tamiya TRF shocks. How do you fit them to the MI2?

they fit right on the car but what we have done out this way is take an exacto knife and slightly enlarge the upper cap (not too much though)that slides onto the shock bushing so that you can use the existing schumacher black plastic bushing then use the stock schumacher ball cups. You will have to cut them slightly to get your ride height where you want it. I hope this answers your question. Good luck and happy racing.
If you have anymore questions ask away.....

Clint, I used the Tamiya balls mounted to the Ti standoff's. Then as you stated, used the Schumie lower ballcup , trimmed for ride.

Is there a reason for using TRF shocks? Any problems with the stock ones?

I use the stock ones. They work perfect to me.

Early on Teemu did a lot of testing of diffrent shocks to get some ideas for future Schu shocks. He really like the Tamiya's so much so that he hasn't taken them off yet!

At the Snowbirds a lot of people saw Teemus car and the next day everyone had Tamiya shocks on their cars. The stock shocks work fine.

Matt Stinson from Muli-Hobby in Canada put a Mi2 in the Sportsman A and finished 3rd with stock shocks at the Birds'.

Yeah, no problems with the stock ones, I just like the silky smooth action of the TRF units. I for one, was planning to put them on my next car, no matter what kit it was.

Just do a "blind-test" at the track and see if you notice any difference between TRF shocks and the stock ones...

Xray Shocks!!!!
I originally bought them for the dampening adjustability, but then when I was building them at 3:30 in the morning to have them ready, I some how broke/stipped all 4 of the adjustable pistons, lol, but still, with the aluminum bodies they work great.

As far as performance is concerned there is NO different between the TRF and stock shocks.

The only benefit of the TRF shocks is ease of maintainence. The TRF shocks are much easier to rebuild since they use a bladder design that eliminates the need to bleed air from them.

???, you have to bleed the AIR on all shocks, or you will get this squish squish sound and they will be very inconsistent
