Has anyone ever tried the center one way? If so what does it do and is it something I should have in my box? I have seen it on Speedtech but never hear anyone discuss it. Hopefully the picture works:

Have not tried it yet but I have two of them with cars I have bought. Look pretty cool. I'm sure they work great.

O O-ring
- 3mm plastic shim
O O-ring

Thanks

It'e been a long time since I've rebuilt my shocks but you should have a small top hate shapped piece that fits snugly in the alloy end piece. Then there's a couple of o-rings (clear rubber) then a black plastic piece with one flat edge to it. This is held in by a C shaped sprung wire, which has a straight section that fits onto the flat section of the plastic piece and should clip under a small rim in the alloy end piece. Then there's a rubber ring that fits around the threaded section and compresses when you tighten the two alloy pieces together.

You should be able to see what I mean from the manual.

Thank you so much
Actually I don't own a Cuda (perhaps it would be my next car), I bought some shock bodies for my mini RS4, they didn't include any manual.
If I don't misunderstand you the"small top hate shapped piece" contains the o-ring and the shims and is contained by the alloy o-ring retainer,...
I will try to find an english part list for it...perhaps you have a link for that
I can't find the Triox website where I should be able to download it
Thanks again...I didn't imagine those shocks were so complex to build (I mean so many parts)..

thank you very much.
it solved my problem, actually I used the O-ring which goes between the body and the holder inside the "spring-ride-height-alloy-ring thingy"(forgot that word ) like on my SD....
Thanks again Herminator and Merciless

OVA, so when would I use one? I have a front one way in my car now for parking lot racing and I use a ball diff for carpet. So when should I think about using the center one way? I don't want to buy one and have no use for it.

If you're running front ball diff anywhere or place you race ,the car somtime is slower going around the corner and by putting the one center shaft ,it help the car breeze around corner alittle faster. and easy to control the steering .

I could never get the car to handle properly using the center one-way when I had my WEB... or even on the TC3...
