Sorry, No not yet. 3 more weeks, then they will be available and the Online shop for the ordering will be up as well. Preorders are being taken though.

From the middle of the mounting hole in the top cap to the end of the shock rod (without the ball cap) the T-Shox is 50mm long. If you put a longer ballcap on it, it should fit the MRX5.

In every set of T-Shox rebound springs are included.

4 different rebound springs to get the perfect rebound at any track, if needed.

2 short springs, 1 soft and 1 hard.
2 longer springs, 1 soft and 1 hard.

More information is coming

Hey korey
Those shock look very similarity to the one I had them back in the days..I brought it from R/C Hobby in japan and it had the center hole on top of the shock cap where the shock shaft slid up and down ..the shock piston sit all most in the middle of the shock shaft...only thing differnt is the mounting is in the middle not off set like this one..I still have some part of the shock laying around..wanted to see it?
No question about it..the new T shox they are very updated and better ...

Testing on an Xray today. Great progress.

Tested different pistons and shock oils. Will keep you updated on real testing results (not only theory

The shock look much sleeker now that the first version.

Will they be available in different colors and which price range do you see for a set? Are you going to offer your own range of springs?

Thanks

Thanks, yes worked on getting the sleeker and lower weight but still keeping the rigid design keeping them strong. The previous prototype was way to rigid and heavy, but thats what prototypes are for

The T-Shox will only be available in 1 color to start with. However other manufacturers parts like the spring tensioner and spring cup holder will work fine so you can "pimp" it that way to start with if you want.

Yes, I will have a complete line of T-Shox springs (maybe we can call them T-Springs
The T-Springs where also used at the German Championships where we took the title. I will release all the information on the T-Springs during the week.

Too bad they don't offer these for a Saturn Ion Redline, right? Or are you going to make your own?
