sorry dood. i made the plastic thing out of the clear plastic window from the box of a model car. it weighs next to nothing. i just traced the bottom of the car, cut it out, poked holes where existing screws were and used them to hold it on. any clear plastic will do i think. i tried to find real lexan or something, but couldn't. the shocks are modded shocks from a tl-01. they dont have too much more travel, but the overall length is taller.

So your not running any oil in them? Tl-01s are friction shocks arent they? Looks like you got some good clearance there. How much?

i couldnt find any oil shocks that were a good length. also, they were harder to modify. so these are just friction shocks yes. there is about 3 cm of clearance.

Dang those are just your basic tl-01 shocks on a tt-01 chassis? Looking at the shocks on my tl-01, they don't look that long...

they arent totally basic. i replaced the top mount hole mounty things with some that were taller/longer, so the travel is the same, but they are taller overall. know what i mean?

Ahh I got it. I am looking at a guy selling both a tt-01 and a tl-01 on ebay for $120 plus shipping. Not a bad deal. Might have to pick them up. Race one rally one!

Thanks guys for starting this thread. I have had a TT01 sitting on my shelf for ages doing nothing. I had it set up for drifting but got bored of that, all my other RC stuff is offroad. I have used the shocks off an old 1/16 mini inferno ST. I have done most of it now and will post a pic when I have finished, I am looking forward to putting it on our 1/8th track for a bit of fun. Cheers.
