I believe those shocks are the longer body ones, they might be too long unless you're using the original RS towers which were designed for them.
The A part on the shock part tree is used to push down the little triangular spacer down into the shock body nice and evenly. It's not actually used in the shocks itself, just the assembly.

Hi Guys,

It was a very special day for us at Speed Tech R/C today, not only did we get the call from Yokomo letting us know that the kits are ready, we also got a surprise visit from Mr. Masaaki Hirosaka today (Mr. Masami Hirosaka's father) He wanted to check out the new shop and also let us know of his plans of up coming "Hirosaka" line of high performance R/C products that should be released next year. Should be an exciting product line to keep an eye on

Also, I have one more surprise gift to be included (aside from the spool) for all pre-order customers. I will be picking that up from Yokomo USA tomorrow.

Thanks for your patience on this car kit guys

Steve Wang

I think you are talking about what I call the alignment barrel. It is used to align the little triangle piece into the bottom of the shock. You place the barrel (A) over the shaft and piston. After each triangle (D) piece is installed then you pull it out and put it away, then re-install the piston and shock shaft.

I remember now , thanx Matt . I just have a dremeling job to do to the original RS Frt. tower (shave off the 2 outermost positioning holes). Seems like I have some further length adjustments too, the package includes 2 different lengths of shock ends .
With my SDW here this week and tinker'n with these shocks, looks like my hands are full this weekend
Thanx to you too pops

Spring for the EMS shipping, since you are getting the kit for free. That way, we can build the cars together, so you will be ready if we have any questions.

I was told that the only way we can receive packages on base here in s. korea is through the regular usps. stuff usually takes 7-10 days to get here but this time of year it will probably take longer.

I don't know the part # but as soon as the first person receives their SDW kit they can tell you since they're included. I've used the tobee bones before and they're very good, I would only run them in the rear though, they'll probably bend in the front.

hey guys, anyone using the Square titanium bones and axles.
Besides being lighter, thus having less rotating mass, will they last significantly longer than the stock steel ones?Are they worth stocking up on...

As they are titanium they will wear quite heavily where the pin is, the new Titanium racing ones are very good from what iv heard they are the new worlds edition dont know if you can get them through schumacher in the state yet but you can order them from ti racing direct.

I can confirm what Dan is saying. I have the new TIR Worlds CVDs on my Yoke CGM and they are great.

The best I've found so far.
