Not worth your effort. The Kool Aid is way to strong and has been sipped for way too long.

You're not so great at your own language, it seems.

K-Car Bucky


Take that K-Car shock apart , dump the oil and discover just how bad the O-rings are binding up the shock shaft making mass striction ...


Ae Shocks don't do that ...

Ae Shocks don't do that ...
Sure they do. All Silicone o-rings swell over time. Somehow, AE's still leak after this occurs. Take a look inside of said shock, if you don't have the darkest green anodizing on the bodies then your anodizing has also worn through (this is why the oil you just dumped out of the AE shock is black) mixing your oil with aluminum dust.

This doesn't happen with other shocks.

Hopefully AE has improved the precision of the guide rings in the new shock design and fixed it. The fact that they made the change in the first place has me optimistic.

i have seen plenty guys plunge dirty oil out of kyeshshoo shocks, along with AE shocks.. and my b4 shocks are just as smooth as any keysho ive felt.

its all about how often you rebuild and keep fresh oil in the absorber.

and oh yes ALL shocks are going to wear, it just happens that the AE shock is more susceptible to letting dirt in and then wearing the inside of the body.

Just got the FT B4 kit in today that i ordered last week from Ultimate Hobbies. It has the new SC10 motor guard. I have never owned a B4, what do I look for to identify the new rear shock tower? It also does not contain the revised front shock tower. It does have the shock bodies with the thin line at the base of the bodies. I was hoping it would have the new B4.1 body, but no luck.

Take your calipers and measure the distance between one inner hole and the other on the other side of the tower. The old towers inner holes were 80mm apart. If your holes are closer then you have the newer tower. If not, get out the drill and have some fun!

I was just down at Ultimate Hobbies so I know you got that good price $200
Good luck. I'm getting a new b4 from there and wanted to know if they had the updated kit.

The front and rear shock towers are not the updated ones. Motor guard and shock bodies are. I will just update the rear by purchasing it seperately and the front if I break it.
