I see on most of the set up sheets "one o-ring shocks". How do you build them with one o-ring? Find some shims that fit the shock body and the shaft, and put it together?

I just rebuild my shocks. I thought that a single o-ring shock would be pointless but after rebuilding, the stiffness of the new shocks compared to the worn, dirty but not yet leaking shocks was significant.

Atomic MAY make one, but i'm not sure. I know there are companies that have made one for the TC3 which should fit as the TC4 uses the TC3 drivetrain.

The best way is to use the VCS2 Upgrade kit. It has the spacer and directions on how to do this modification. We did this for 2+ years on the TC4.

Default fitting ko 2413 to tc4 tub

Hello,
anyone used the above combo?
i have discovered the 2413 servo splines are flush with body of servo which cause binding with the linkage.
anyone got a workaround?
seems a shame to lose the 'direct' linkage or the benefit of low profile design by mounting it further back

Thanks

Phil

I thought the ball was meant to be at the back of the servo linkage.

Posting a pic of your setup would help,

Thanks

put the ball on the other side of the servo saver. If you still have an angle in the link, start putting suspension washers behind the ball on the steering rack ball. Make sure that you have enough threads in the steering rack, you can also just use a longer ball stud, this would also keep the washers to a minimum, and thread engagement to a maximum.

Anyone has solution for the slop/play on suspension? I always want to find some tiny shims for the hinge pins on C-hubs which have a lot of play sitting on front arms...
