Thanks for the info...just to be sure it's the "R" chassis kit we're talking about, right?

I know the regular kits come with the tires you mentioned. Thanks again.

Apart from the XB kits, all M03/05 come with 50683 60D's which are the hardest of all the treaded 60D tyres.

Is that a Colt body or an older HPI?

It's Colt. Good racebodies, takes a fair amount of beating.

Most TRF Shocks use:

Tamiya Damper 2mm Rod Guide and O- Ring: Part#53574

I'm not 100% sure about the Tamiya #54000 dampers but I'd say the same part listed above will do the job.

Price is less than $5

cheers

I ordered them from fleebay. Cheap too, only 8 USD + 2 USD shipping.
In my opinion the body came out pretty good and looking forward to thrashing it at our next racemeeting.
