Wont this increase wear on the shaft since its exposed to the elements and with the shocks moving up and down, won't dirt eventually get inside and mess something up?

Yes it will but when you race you change shock fluid pretty regularly as well as rebuild them .

How do I tell if my motor has too much drag?
Real talk! How in the hell did you get them to send you the 3800??? hell if that's the case I'm calling them today!

What good is a TX with superfast latency if you can't run a digital servo?

I personally think they are absolute garbage, but I was trying to be nice....

POS wont even run in my 2wd anymore without a glitchbuster. Can't wait till it burns up like all castle esc's eventually will so I can sell the replacement and buy something decent....

I have found that you do have to change your oil out a bit more often. Please keep in mind, I mostly run on indoor clay tracks. I would consider keeping them on if I ran outdoor (after soaking them in oil for a few days).

I ran the Ten-T Shocks on my Slash 4x4 and pitched the rubber boots after they tore up and just ran Shock Sox over them, even after 3-4 months of racing the fluid only had a slight bit of clay in it...

Just so you guys know, Doogie is now the proud owner of a losi SCTe and will get smacked around for blasfeming and talking about a slash..

I know this is not much help after the fact but if you put the shocks on the truck the correct way this becomes impossible to loose the lower shock cup. Since there is an index key on the eyelets if you have the slot pointing outboard on the truck when you install the shock onto the arm the cups can only go down and into the arm and will not come off. This is a common feature from the 8ight to keep the spring cups in place for long gas mains.

If you cannot find any in stock at an online shop then they are scheduled to be back in stock at Horizon at the end of next week.

Casper, would you mind posting a pic? Just so we know that we're installing them correctly.
