Guys, I found out that there is a play in the shock pistons. This is fixed by putting one 3x5x0.2 washer on top of the piston and then putting on the E-clip.
Regards,
Terry

Korey Harbke gave me that tip a while back. I use it on my Schumacher shocks. I also like to put the spacer under the piston, so it's not trying to fly off when I'm putting the e-clip on. Usually .1mm does it for me.

Korey said it's important not to make it so tight that the piston can't rotate on the shock shaft, but I don't know the reason for that. The TC6 shocks seem to clamp the piston completely.

Mine are solid(meaning that they can't rotate). Thank you for your input!

Better off using a .2mm spacer, stops slop but allows rotation, built these like this from when i bought the kit

Default Spec-R shafts for TCX

I have question regarding changing shafts from aluminium to steel ones. Recently before HB released steel shafts I have switched to Spec-r. Now I want to try DCJ shafts from Spec-R, but they dont produce it. The question is if it will work if I put Roche spool for TCX that come with outdrives for Yokomo or tamya and buy spec-r v2 shafts for Yokomo BD5 will it fit on my tcx with new 3holes arms and standart C-Hubs? Thank for advice.

Thay are 44mm, so too short for spool. To use orig. DCJ you need to replace spool with a one way that has longer cups. But the price for change is too big. 3x times more that Roche+spec-r.

Yes I know it. but they are very weak. I have used it before but it wears down in 10-20 runs. I have changed it in every event. I am driving 17.5 motor so it has not so much power. I saw that people who runs roche never changes it at all it does not wear so fast.
