Nope. They are the same length as the 007 and NT1 shocks for which they are designed.

Not 100 percent here but I think just the shaft is shorter not the body.

Just to bump up this thread I collected some posts of the xray forum about the plastic/alu diff mess

Quote:
TonyV (teamdriver) wrote on Wed Oct 31, 2007 7:01 am
... when the first production kits were provided to the team drivers in Vegas some of the parts were not yet available in sufficient volumes for everyone. Notably the new diffs without the blades.

Announcement on the xray site on Nov. 28, 2007

Exclusive First batch
Please note that the mold for the new Composite Diffs was not finalized for mass production in time for the export of kits, and as such the first batch of kits feature aluminum externally-adjustable ball differentials. ...

The XRAY composite diffs have been long term tested by factory team drivers around the world in all the different racing conditions and as such you can be sure that what will get into final production and into handso f racers will be the usual XRAY premium luxury quality. That is all what I can say on this - it is XRAY.
I don't know about you but I'm confused now... As far as I know the factory drivers did not have access to the composite diffs at the two big races where xray introduced the car (European Championship, Vegas) so I assume they could not test those.
Of course the mess also proves again that you can't please everybody, some wants the plastic diff some thinks it won't be as good as the alu one... the xray forum became an interesting reading lately...

When you read my own comment carefully you will see that I stated that there were not enough of the composite outdrives available in Vegas for all team drivers. I did NOT say none were used at all there. Prototypes of the composite outdrives have been tested extensively but since the production mould is still not entirely to Juraj's satisfaction there are still not enough available to be used by all team drivers at all events.

On the one hand this could be considered worrying as obviously the production version should be tested itself once available. On the other hand it is also testament to Juraj's focus on quality. He is not letting these out the door until he is fully satisfied it meets XRay's rather high quality standards.

Can anyone tell me what spur and pinion you guys are running for stock when a 40 roll out is needed.
With the new ratio of 2.375 the spur must have to be pretty small.
thanks!!!

So what are the results? Can we use the alum shocks and just change the shaft to the shorter one to work on the '008? Will the shaft from the '008 kit work in the alum. shocks?

When I read the flash presentation regarding the new shorter shocks, I thought it said both the shock shaft and shock body were shorter.. I'll see if I can find it.. I would think the older version (larger) would work, but it'd be tough to tell until it's tried.

A question - are the battery slots in the carbon chassis beveled for the batteries? Some of the pictures on the XRAY site appeared that might be a possibility.. With the US chassis at 3.5mm, that would be great to see..

What have you guy's been doing about putting a 13.5 in the car? It needs a 39 or 40 tooth pinion and all I can fit is a 35. I run 19T also and don't know if it's gonna hurt me putting in a 104 or 98 tooth spur.
