I don't doubt he's a nice guy.

But when I'm told stuff has already gone out (before Christmas) and then it still hasn't arrived, and he doesn't respond to any of the 3 or 4 emails I've sent since, AND charges 17euro's delivery and doesn't give a tracking number.....

Its odd because when you order on the site it says 3-4 days shipping time....unless that means 3-4 days to get it shipped?.....but maybe hes just overloaded with orders and cant keep up.

I'm more interested in when i am going to receive the "Special O-rings" rather than Yokomo O-rings that swell after 1 race day.

Looks like I'll be pre-ordering from you.
Got a Paypal refund for the missing order from AME

Unfortunately it won't let me pre-order

got a set to try and test, the long version for the Kyosho TF6 sp. Fit and finish is very nice, instructions could be better. They fit the car very well, no modifications needed. The feeling on the bench is smooth..... hope to test them soom on our tight indoor carpet track. I got them from Tonisport.

Hi
Can we racers get some feed back and different setups on these TSHOX plz,
I personally have a set on my TCXX and have found that they make the car sit more positiley on the track, unlike the standard HB ones. I feel this is due to NOT having to set the rebound via bladders, as the TSHOX are governed by different length and different gauge springs for precise rebound.

I have only tried the 2 different weight oils so far, and have run on prima felt GT rug.
I tried the 450MM oil with the standard 1.1 piston holes and Yellow front and rear springs, but found the car bounced on the front end, which I feel was due to the Tshox having the incorrect pack, these were built with short rebound springs (sorry but not sure what gauge they are, Jimmy Maddison advised which to use when building them) I drilled the holes out to 1.2 and found the front of car was to soft, which made it pitch, my droop was 5.5 rear & 6 front, so went up to 450MM oil, which stopped the car front being to soft, and kept the car a lot flatter, hope this helps

Cheers Malc

Hi
I have been told that the yellows are very simular to HB Sliver if that helps, reds are a tad softer, prob like HB blues
