As you have found out there isn't a shock kit, you can very easily figure out the parts needed by using the exploded diagram in the back of the 'XX manual.

Yes and after i saw that i will not spend over $150 for a second set of HB shock. That's why i am looking for some sort of remplacement.

I am quite surprised that nobody is discussing the modification of the top deck fixation on the motor mount... It really seems the way to go as all the others manufacturers are modifying their actual ch‚ssis this way... Following Yokomo!

Has somebody more informations about how Andy fix the central axle and how many spacers he put under the top deck to avoid contact? It seems that there are 2mm spacers but I can't figure how we can secure the axle in two millimeters...

I converted my TCXX to match Andy's car as close as I could. I used 2.5mm spacers all around to lift the top deck. I had to make two separate pieces from graphite that would hold the spur gear shaft (central axle) in place. I used flat head screws to attach those pieces. The flat head screws were too tall so I ground them down to fit with some clearance to the top deck. I used the forward motor mount from the TCX and also used the forward motor mount from the TCXX (the one with the belt tensioner) in the remaining hole in front of that. I had to machine a post to fit from the forward TCXX motor mount to the top deck. Unfortunately there is no hole in the TCXX top deck that lines up with the new post. It does line up very close to the end of the notch in the top deck. I used a tapered washer (from a servo mount, I think) to fill the notch and hold down the top deck down. I think I could of used 2mm washers all around but it would have been close.
I ran the car on asphalt (mod) with mixed results. The surface had no grip (not treated) and the car had a push. It definitely didn't look like Andy's car.
It might have been the driver ...

I did some tests using a modified TCX top deck, I did not use shims, the central shaft remains in place and there a good flex.

You can change the flex simply re-using two screws.

Post some pictures (sorry for the low quality)

Where are the pictures of Andy's car? Are they on the web at all? When did he run the modified top deck, which race?

Cheers
