Thats a real bummer!!! I bought these in hopes of having a trick looking set of shocks with all the other HA pieces shock body, alum bleeder caps, seems like the regular shock shafts would have been smoother. I definitely like the look of the TI-NI shafts. But they ain't TI-NI NO MORE!!!! and after one practice day with only a handful of runs......

Here's my problem, ive had the TiNi shock shafts fitted for about 2 weeks and done around 20 packs through them, 3 corners are wearing well and still look fresh, but one rear has pretty much gone silver already

Still good


The bad one :-(

the tracks around here are small so no need to get all that top end
It is the other way around; leave the stock spur and use a smaller pinion. What motor and pinion are you running currently?

For the guys having problems with the Tini coating wearing off. What Orings are you using? I use the 22 buggy LF Orings and mine dont show any sign of wear yet.

I do not believe o-rings should have anything to do with it.

Are the TiN hinge pins wearing like this? If not then its something in the shocks..like the orings or the bottom cap.

Funny how we are using the same esc. Is that the 150 amp or the 80 amp. Haven't gotten the chance to use it at the track yet.

Question the lower the pinion the higher the top speed or the more torque?

I totally agree ! If a freaking 0-ring can wear the coating off and as fast as they do wear something is not right .

I have TiNi shock shafts on my BK1 that still look new ! Seems like since the XXX-CR days the coating has become sub par .

But what else could the shaft be rubbing against? Because to me it looks like the coating is wearing off evenly on the whole shaft..so its from rubbing on something, not getting hit by rocks and what not.

My point was an o-ring should not be wearing off a properly TiNi coated shaft .
