Default Tamiya shock

Hey guys can you help me out real quick.

I am looking for the latest and greatest Tamiya TRF shock.

some of the oval heads are running it as a center shock and wanted to try it.

I thought it was part number 49293 but looks like that one was discontined.

Thanks
EH

I guess a follow up question would be, is there a better shock out there than the tamiya ?

X-ray, Kyosho, Losi, HPI (i currently use the 72170) on my pan car.

The Losi shock is about as sweet as they come. Many different size holes and asy to adjust with different bladders, 0-rings on top.....

Is it BETTER than a Tamiya-I dont know, but its even easier to rebuild and make piston changes.

They are absolutely right, the TRF Shocks are top of the line!!

As you only need 1pcs, this should be perfect for yor application!
Part# 53901

Add these oil dampers to your F103GT Chassis for even better performance. Low friction fluorine coating of cylinder, together with titanium coated piston, secures smooth damper movement. Adjustable type spring retainer allows for fine tuning of spring pressure.
