Ah......gotcha! IMO the Jammin shocks would not be on my list of things to change. They are IMO the best production shock on the market hands down. They are going to look good on my new K-car!

They're okay, but I think the Mugen big-bores have better action. The felt wipers on the Jammin shocks on my CRT (same as the X1 shocks) hold dirt against the shaft and as a result they're scratched all the hell.

Old skool I never used the felt and rubber stopper and for the very reason you posted. I went right to the booty, well ballons really. I have built just about every production shock there is for 1/8th scale. IMO the Jammin shocks are the smoothest most consistant and longest lasting out there. A buddy of mine did get a set of aftermarket KMV shocks for his Mugen and they were awasome as well.

i was looking at some of those KMV bodies for my 777 shocks, they look very well crafted.

Well crafted yes indeed, I took a close look before my buddy built his. They are however a little on the costly side, about 120.00.

Sorry for the late reply. Tabushi yes I must say its a nice feeling to have myself and my son 1st and 2nd.
My son is quite new and only his second official race meeting. His first one he did well. Second race meeting he broke his shock tower at the start of the race. This one he completed all the races without any problems.
One can learn alot from this. I told him to take it easy and make no mistakes. No jumping or any fancy tricks. All the other guys past him. He made very little mistakes and he finshed second.
So yes "Slow is Fast"

Just some info on shocks. The jammin shocks standard for me is not the best. They always tend to leak and after one or 2 heats the shock oils has run out abit. I then changed to SH Shocks which is really good as they never leak. Problem is the springs and shafts are soft.
Anyways went back to jammin shocks as I found a cure. My Jammin big bore shocks is now the best in the business.
Firstly I had a buddy turn me out on a lathe shock piston for the big bore shocks. Similar to the Fioroni. I drilled a 1.5mm hole tapering to 2mm.
I use the SH shock seal which is fatter and tighter. Its so tight you have to screw the threaded part of the shaft through it. I then use 2 teflon and 1 standard Jammin oring.
All I can say I rebuilt my shocks last week, raced on Sunday and My car is clean and ready to go and I am not needing to touch my shocks.
I think My shock problems is no more.
