Why would you want to use the Yok shocks???
Tamiya still have the best shocks around, and they are getting better.....

Hi guys,

I always believe in running the same hop-up as the manufacture of the car (Tamiya shocks on Tamiya cars for example) The Tamiya blue shocks are very smooth and I run them on my 414M2. Run the shocks as they are and at your first rebuild, replace the silicon O-ring with the MIP Blue O-rings. The MIP blue O-rings is what's used by all the top drivers.

I had the chance to build the new FL coated shocks, which came standard on the EVOIII, and I can honestly say, they are a bit smoother than the previous Tamiya shocks, but they are a bit more expensive.

Here's a direct link to the shocks:

FL Coated: http://64.70.208.72/speedtechrc/258.html
Anodized Blue: http://64.70.208.72/speedtechrc/203.html

These have nice polish finish (mirror) on the inside. Great when new.....but they do wear...as indicated by the 'grey' shock oil you get after a while...but they are fine.
