Can you mention what tweaks you saw? Just curious. Thanks. I won't hold my breath on a Tamiya designed teflon coated shock. lol

I'm not familiar with the gear diff problem(s). Tell me more, take some pictures. Personally I don't know why people run them up front. I think spools are still the way to go.

Just that the outdrive is made too thin and the blade wears out really quickly.

Does the outdrive cover the entire blade?

no other advantage...
they tend to get loose and change setting after crash/etc.
more parts inside the shock...etc.

always go with fixed pistons...no disadvantage...build it and leave it.

Xray shock are very good...when they are built correctly.
I love the adjustable pistons, and in 3 years of driving an Xray I've never had one change it's setting in any situation. I use that adjustment a lot and it's one of the nicest features of an Xray in my opinion. Just my 2 cents.

No, but the blades fit really snugly in the steel outdrives. They'll wear a groove in the blades, but it's not really an issue.

The outdrives are the same OD as the bearing ID. If you want the outdrive larger in dia you'll have to install the bearing on the diff case and then build the diff trapping the bearing. I'd rather just change the blade when it wears out...

I measured a set of the ver2 spec R shafts and they were about 1.2mm shorter from pin to post than the Hudy 52mm shafts. I wasn't extremely precise when I measured because it was more of a curiosity to know rather than a need for a specific length but I was pretty close.

I need a longer shock to raise ride height
AFAIK 308361 is a shaft for T2 007
No body use 308361 on t3 12? Thinking another way to extend the shock.

P.S. I have some of the version that fitted 52mm driveshafts and still use them.
