Horizon Hobby has the carries the Ride Vacuum Pumps. If I am not mistaken they are the distributer for ride in the USA. Definately worth the money!!

The MI2 will not include the Tamiya shocks. Schumacher was only using the Tamiya shocks on the early prototypes. On the Schumacher tread, Paul W. said that when testing the car they wanted to use the best shocks available. Since then they have switched back to the schumacher shocks and have not noticed any difference in lap times.

hey everyone,

im thinking of putting some tamiya trf shocks on my xray and i have a few questions:

1) what are the shocks to get? the trf fluorine coated standard ones?

2) will they fit on my car? and with the serpent original springs for the T1 , cuz thats wot ive got along with the tamiya super hards.

3) where do i get em from and for about how much??

4) if i build them with the same pistions and same iols as i have know(obviously the tamiya pistons, not xray) will they be the same as my xray ones???


the reason i am doing this is because my front xray shocks keep leaking and because the threads on the plastic bodies are wearing and sometimes slip when i screw them right down when rebuilding and other things.

please let me know asap, thanx

Well, I just use the shocks, which came with my HPI Pro2. They suits me nice, they never made any trouble for me. And I like to adjust with the clip-system, since it's easy to have them equal from side to side.

If I should have another? It would be the XRay style, I think it's very handy to adjust them externally.

How do you get your chaissis perfectly straight? When you set tweak your preloads will be slightly different right?

I just got the upgrade shock kit for the Assoc. shocks and I really like the way they go together and feel.

Tamiya, HPI, and Yokomo have great shocks. I hate the adjustable Xray and CRC Clicker shocks. With regular pistons shocks, you always know each shock has the same dampening.
