Yes they are.

How is the position of the body posts? Will a body made for the EVO3 work with same holes for the 415 also?

Come on guys lol. Any way you look at it, your still using some pretty damn smooth shocks. BTW, the textured shock top and bottom pieces are really nice, makes it easier for them to screw on. Also, the aluminum color with o-ring locks in the spring setting. I don't run the aluminum top hat thingy as I believe it adds weight when coupled with the connecting hardware that you need to add. Also, I use the plastic spring retainers (again weight savings). But if you want bling bling.....
The spring retainer adds only 1g for all 4 of them...

Here is a picture of my 415:

Unfortunately not. I was hoping it will since I too have an EVO3. all 5 holes are different.

If you look at the package the body of the shock is not blue. The rest of the parts are. They are talking about the full blue bodied shock from the M2

tiggersz, they are talking about exactly the shock I am talking about, the TRF blue shocks, not the ones from the M2.

Ok my bad. When I think of blue shocks I think of the M2 ones since they are truly blue and not fluorine coated and the New blue ones the bodies are the normal fluorine coated shock body with the blue pieces.

Thanks for that information. Seems I will stay completely with my EVO3 as I just have finished a bunch of bodies and don´t like making some new ones again.

I think the motor area is the only place that got the 3D treatment.
