Supposedly the guys who run nitro (such as Meen and Charlee P) prefer the short shocks, as they make the car more aggressive.
From my experience, using the short shocks on asphalt make the car easier to drive not more aggressive. I think I remember Meen telling me the same at the Reedy race. He also used blue springs to calm the car down too.

Sorry - I was rushed and worded that poorly. They make the car easier to drive and more forgiving, so he can drive the car more aggressively. This is as per Robert, but who knows.

Dont sell your 15's, I believe this car will be released this week as a full kit and an update kit which means you can convert your 2015 to 2016.

Where did you get that info? A conversion kit would be most interesting!

Distributors were notified this week, However the conversion kit isn't much cheaper so a fresh kit wouldn't be a bad spend

Without any facts at hand, I highly doubt a conversion kit will be released.

Pretty much all of them, I guess. Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I know, drift wheels are the same size and use the same hex as TC wheels.
