Default Yokomo Shocks for Drift Package

LHS ran out of stock on Yokomo Upgrade Kit 1, and some HK hobby shop said upgrade kits would not be available. So i end up having to buy the Yokomo bearings seperately. So now i need to get the shocks seperately so as to complete upgrade kit 1.

may i know which shocks is better and advisable to get? what are the difference between these 2? coz i read from somewhere that the stock shocks are totally useless, must be changed. as for the spring, do u use back the stock spring or new springs?


YS-1SSS-7

or


YS-1SSS-6


also i was told that there is a shock that required us to use back some of the stock shock parts.

The first shocks you picture are the newer bladder type shocks, the second are the non-bladder type.

I would go for the bladder type.

Your existing springs will fit.

hello uniquexme,

you can post your question on the yokomo SD thread CM/CGM/LCG/SDW/SD/Rayspeed => they are all shaft driven and share a lot of same components.

There are more people there to help you with any questions.

and for your shock purchasing question.
you should get the YS-1SSS-7 like sosidge said. because it is the bladder type, easier to build and the shock cap is also alum. which should fit into your bling bling factor. These are the standard shocks for all the high end yokomo model. every internal inside the shock , piston, shaft, oring is the same as your CM. your shock Springs are direct fit also. but i would recommand you get the rayspeed shock retainer. as you can use springs like HPI or AE for finer tuning.

thanks guys, but may i ask if the stock shocks are totally useless? from wat i can see in these 2 shocks is that the YS-1SSS-6 has 2 aluminium pc compared to the stock. will that 2 pcs really help? or just for bling bling?
