Default missing parts

Hi Andreas. I recently purchased a set of T-Shox for my T4 from a Hong Kong store and unfortunely found four(4) of the cone shims missing. Also one of the spring retainers was of a larger size, it passed over the shock thread. I manage to build two shock with the parts I had and found that both shafts, without oil in them were binding. Is there a fix for this problem and will the parts be sent out to me. I sent my detail via T-Shox web sight.

This past weekend i spend it testing mostly the T-Shox at the Euros 2013 Track outdoors asphalt on my Xray T4.

I ended up with:
Oil: MM400
Rebound spring: short
Springs: Blue in Front and Green in Rear

Sunday went home and disassemble them to check for leakage and rebuilt them. For me still no problem at all, the orings are handling very well and after rebuild them the T-shox are still as smooth as new.

Performance wise my results were very good, but will have to wait for a race to get them official, but i can assure they were great.

Hello,

I also used 2mm in de front.
I also used 4mm in the rear (with 3 degree toe in). If you use less toe in (2 degree) you can use 3mm shims because the rear arm is less mounted forward on the outside.
I replaced the HEX SCREW SB M3x8 in the front by HEX SCREW SB M3x10
I replaced the HEX SCREW SB M3x8 in the rear by HEX SCREW SB M3x12

Default AME reseller Netherlands

Just want to let everyone know that we from Capricornrc.nl will be offering the full line of AME parts.

http://www.capricornrc.nl/t-shox

We're also working on low profile shocktowers for the Tamiya 417, Yokomo BD7, Capricorn TE-01, ARC-10 and Kyosho TF6 so all of these cars can be converted to short shocks.

Hi,

I used a reamer, the result is better but I think the real problem is bottom plastic shim is too thick ( or O-ring too thick), when bottom 10004 tightened light, the shock moves free, when tightened fully, shock moves not free.
=> will try to make plastic shim thinner.

=> make it from 1,95 thick till 1,85 with 800 sandpaper and it is perfect now ;-)

No Nuno, unfortunately i will not go. At the moment for me the T-Shox are a must have, smooth as i never had any other shocks. I think the main advantage is the regular and consistent performance through every heat.
