Asso shocks are too long for xxx-s, especially front end. you wouldn't get correct ride height with asso shocks.

the tag on the spring set for the tc3 says it fits the: tc3 thye ntc3 as well as the xxx-s> the springs will work on your xxx-s shocks.

Yeah, AE springs dont fit. I think they are longer and they have a smaller overall diameter.

The SHOCKS will fit. They won't really work though. Your ride height and so forth will be off. I've heard of people making it work, but it's alot of work.JMO

Just to let you guys know. The TC3 springs do fit on the XXX-S shocks. I use them alot when i need to make a small spring change. In some XXX-S setups on the Losi site they use Associated springs.
Dont use the Associated shocks though. Either leave the standard ones on there, get Tamiya shocks, or go with the new JRX-S shocks.

I hope this helps you,
Chris
