Now the question is do I want to pay $130 USD plus $30 USD shipping for these shocks!?
I am working on getting US direct backing asap so you can at least save on the shipping but it will probably take a month or so until I have something setup correctly.

ETS release was great, everyone where very happy with performance, building and the looks.

Cheers

Hey Andreas,

what comes in the shocks kit? What would you recommend for carpet racing, should I buy some parts separately?

Thanks

testing. so far the new tshox made a very good first impression. car feels a little smoother to drive and less edgy still providing the same front and back end grip. all in all a little easier to drive i think and definitely worth a try.testing was down on very high grip carpet (3x1.1 mm, 450oil, yokomo springs blue&pink, 0 rebound, motor 4.5T).

in the next test i will try out different rebound springs. any recommendations for very high grip carpet track?

cheers

This Saturday I tested the t-shox on my serpent s411te.

First I had to add some shims on the A arm mount to get them straight since the upper mount moves them to an angle. This restricted the front steering because the inner edge of the rim touched the shock mount. The shocks work really consistent and the car was way more easy to drive then wits the standard RCM shocks. I used the short hard rebound spring, 425 cst oil and the yellow AME springs. The combo is awesome on a high grip carpet!

One remark, they leaked slightly on both ends. Maybe got to find some better O-rings ...

Do the tshox springs have a lbs rating? Or do you know how they compare to yokomo springs?

I,ve run them, started with MM250 oil in it and it feel already good, after 2 or 3 runs changed from MM250 to MM450 and made the same laptimes as before, but by far much ease, and the feeling left over there is more in it.
So far no trouble or leakage except the lost of oil due to comress the oil while mounting.

Hi,

Is there a US or Canadian distributor for AME products? I'm trying to avoid paying $35 shipping.

Thanks,
Ethan

Where is the instruction video for assembly on the website that is mentionned in the manual that comes with the shocks ?

Would also be a very good idea to do the packaging of the rebound springs in seperate packages because now it is a search to find the difference between short soft/hard and long soft/hard springs. I think i have the long soft rebound springs now in the shocks but i am not 100% sure :-)

Kentech has made a nice review of the TSHOX on his blog: http://kentech.blogs.se/2012/12/17/a...shox-15328316/

The rebound springs can be identified by the number of coils on each spring. More coils = softer spring. I now use a small pill box to keep the springs and other TSHOX spares organised.

Been using mine for a couple of months now and they are fantastic, no leaking just reliable, smooth and consistent. I run med-high grip carpet 1.2mm 3 hole pistons, long soft rebound springs MM#500.

How do these work on a t4 with the shorter shocks. Also can the bigger t4 springs be used with these?
