Cheers - will probably get a MBX5 one if this one breaks again after boiling. Plus will look into the driveshaft when I'm next ordering something (along with MBX5 captured hingepins?? - do they fit as well?)

I really would love to get to the Neo 09 but I don't live particularly close. Plus my Dad lives in Switzerland (trying to make him get a buggy out there as tracks are wicked!) and I only race when he comes back, and my Mum wouldn't take me lol.

When does the Neo09 start?

other shocks...?
they will have to have not too long a travel up front..
perhaps Losi's ? if they don't touch the wingsupports..?
try another set of the originals first

diffs , try 6000/10.000/3000, or 7000/7000/3000

seems Ishima and J.Q. are working on a us style set
Pictor rush2 shows one too :

Do you not think that this upgrade takes away the appeal of the Ishima/Piktor? Surely it is the originality that brings most of the consumers towards the buggy. Simply because it is different?


Just my opinion,
Scott

seems pictor is selling some rush2 somewhere in the us..

yes I think that too..
I don't like buggys with huge towers, it's a ugly sight
and they could bend or be damaged easily going in a upside down crash
those small towers with angled shocks are less vulnerable
and look sweet
but the huge jumps in the us demand shocktravel
perhaps smartworking shocks could be the answer too..and as the parts of the Ishima are made at Caster, quality suffers

From what I see, 808 shocks, shock towers geometry are close to default caster racing zx1.5 setup.

Pivot balls looks like to be hardcoated maybe direct from mugen same goes for Hinge pins and rear toe plate.

Those shock towers are the same as the Caster ZX-1R or FT kit and not the ZX1.5R. The 1.5R is shorter for more droop.

As for the hinge pins , the Mugen ones fit. Its only the lower, outer, rear pins that are thicker than the Mugen.
CEN Genesis truck captured hinge pins also fit and are cheaper than Mugen ones.

I would like to see bigger bore shocks with dust boots though and whats up with those tires in the kit LOL.


i got one a few weeks ago and its a big steaming pile of crap, the steering servo failed, bent the chassis, faulty radio that fixed its self, hard to keep tuned, pullstart spring broke, clutch shoe chipped, crap tyres, never runs straight and it was run-in and tuned by a pro. bigger shocks are available and it has dust boots

Another car that has to be mugenized in order to work and be reliable. Why can't you people just buy the MBX5r.

I personally have found the shocks to be OK. I have the M1.0S and refilled them (threadlocking the screws as they came loose to start with) and they work well here in the UK.

Thanks

Digging up an old thread here

Yes, the Jammin Super Big Bores from an X1 fit....way better shock than std ishima, no mods required (only exchanging the ball joint sleeve insert in top of shock - easy peasy). Work fantastic on hard landings.

Pictures show the std front ishima shocks (yellow spring ) vs the Jammin. Note: Mugen MBX* shocks also work fine.

Cheers
