Those are just servo holders. I forgot from what chassis. I think it was from my TA05 V2.

...but you obviously have the new shocks and servo mount. Where have you got them from?

Going through my old stock I found new in packages;

TC5 top shock busings with 3mm thread #31250
TC3 shock kit #3990
TC3 unobtainium(sp)shock shaft #3964
TC3 shock caps #6443
CSO servo mount
HPI silver spings
TRF spring retainers

I just wanted to try this set up first before I spend $550 on another car. Tamiya is doing something that's been done a long time ago. When I ran a TRF414M back in the day, I used similar shocks from my MR4TC with bleeder tops and TA04 front and rear gear diffs. I think my TA04 gear diffs had metal bevel gears inside too.

New Smokem 417FX chassis and Smokem 417CTR servo mount ordered.

Interesting and somehow funny . And you find you have lot's of grip, so that kind of shocks may be a good thing after all. I never liked that rebound idea anyway.

Would you mind posting a setup sheet?

I would love to just keep my 417X and just buy a set of those new shocks. I hope parts are available shortly after!

What would people change on this setup to get the rear end to be a bit more stable and have a little more general rear end grip. It has lots of steering which i need to keep as the tracks i race on are very tight.

Thanks
