Tamiya shocks are the best in my opinion

the fluorine coating

x-ray shocks are nice because of the adjustable piston’s , and CRC also makes a “clicker shock” similar to the x-ray shock’s adjustable piston.

click on tc3 parts to see the clicker shocks

I'd have to agree on the Tamiya shocks being the best currently available. Their single large silicone o-ring makes them silky smooth, and their fit and finish are flawless. You can usually pick them up for about $40 for a set with medium springs off of ebay. I type in "TRF" to find such parts.

I took a look at the TRF shock set on Ebay, and all the sets were being sold by people from Hong Kong. I live in the US, and I was just wondering if anyone has done business with these people? I'm kind of interested in getting one of those shock sets. Also, they fit the TC3...right?

Thanks,
etzkev

I've bought a lot of my Tamiya hop ups from ebay from rl0725. Great to do business with, great with emails and will combine shipping. He even has stuff that he will sell that he doens't have listed, just ask about a part and he'll let you know if he has it or not

Tamiya should make teflon coated shock shafts for the Yokomo. The teflon is what makes the shocks so smooth.
