I am pretty sure they are Jammin X2 buggy springs.

A pic from my Jammin days. I kept some as spares when I sold all the Jammin stuff I had.

A few have said they feel left out that the parts aren't available but I'm sure AE is just making sure everything is right before there release. For those that cant wait there is nothing that says you cant do it yourself. Here is my take on the updates, took about two days of working on it but came out pretty good. Not the easiest mod but doable and will be fine until the updates are available.

at RCX today a driver had Associated shock mounts with wider spacing.

He said they're being produced but are working out the details for the a-arms. I may have to call, or visit, their shop and try to get a pair.

I've been shopping out some cf myself; the problem I'm having is finding the right thickness.

I looked at those too, but $80 for the pair and I had some left over carbon fiber from another project, well you do the math. All I have invested is time. If you dont have the ability or material to do the fab work they wold be worth the money though.

Did a crap load of measuring and calculating, examining photos of the team parts, measuring those photos based on measurements that are constant on the old and new parts. Cant be too far off if at all. Basically just copies of the team parts. Also, how do we know if its wrong? I mean on something like this what is right or wrong?
