the original shocks (SSS) are short body shocks......

the SS are optional long body shocks.....

The difference is in the length of the shock body; the SSS's are the shortys and the SS's are longys. Not quite sure on the actual difference in length but the difference is very noticeable. HTH

The SS shocks were used for the GT-4 nitro car. The Rayspeed version recomended those longer shocks, because of the higher shock towers. Most people would not use the SS shocks on the MR-4TC (all versions), so the more than likely they are SSS shocks. I measured them on a car and the body (bottom of the cap to the bottom of the shock body) SSS is 20.3mm and SS is 23.3mm.

Hey pops,
Is there a part number for the 'black caps' with the bleed screws that went on the GT-4 shocks? Also do you know if they're available seperately?

Yes, they are the same as used on the older MR-4 cars too. Part #YS-8Y Shock End Caps. I believe there are 2 caps in each pack. $3.00 per pack.

Hello,

Almost finished building my SDW, and have to say I am very impressed.

A couple of questions though.

When building the shocks, and following the manual, I was left over with 4 black "o" rings - I presume these are bump stops that go on the shock shaft.

I used a shaft length of 62mm, but the springs were still preloaded. Should I extend them further ? - Did you use the shorter\longer shock ending ?

Does anybody use the optional body post position for the rear ? - what the benifit of this over mounting them on the shock tower ?

You can use extend the length of SSS shock by cutting the bottom parts of the triangular shape(where the part that supposed put the sponge thing in the middle in the old shock). You should be long enough...

B&O - thanks I might give that a try ......

I am thinking of running in the transmission tonight. I was going to hook it up to an old stock motor and run about 4Volts through it for a few hours. Does this sound o.k. ?

I'm rebuilding the shocks of my spare car.
Its too bad that it was made using the triangular things with a bigger diameter!!!
He used the C part instead of the D part

Can I order those things separately? (YS-7-1)
or
Can I rebuild the shock without the triangular things?
Has anyone tried it?

Just a shot in the dark here,
Does anyone have a setup for So.Cal. for the Rayspeed upgrade.
I went there two weeks ago and could not find a good combo,
I am running Yokomo dish rims with super thin Yok insert on Sorex 36Rs and have two bodys, Alfa2 and Nemisis. Any help would be appreciated as I am hoping to make a few more trips down to So.Cal. this year.
Thanks in advance,
Stephen <><
