Default Touring Car Shocks Thread

Wondering if I could get some insight on some really good touring car shocks. Tamiya, Yokomo, Associated, etc.

I just ordered the CRC clicker shocks for my TC3 and I'll let you know how they are.

Cool I seen some of those today but they were on a oval car. It would be intresting to see how they work on a TC3.

Tamiya has the best shocks period. AE and Xray springs fit them perfectly along with the Tamiya springs. Also, those air vacum pumps work awesome!! I can't tell any difference in the way the car feels with no air in the shocks, but you can bet they don't have air int hem!!! LOL

Tamiya TRF easily the best. Others are good. The stock associateds are good Losis are good and the CRC clickers are really cool. Unless your a very talented pro you probably never tell the difference between them. I have two sets of the Tamiya TRFs and they are smooth consistant and easy to rebuild no bleeding of oil. Plus they look great. I think the new MI2 comes with these.

Hi,

air removal tool is made by Ride.

Tamiya shocks are really nice as are the Xray shocks. the new Yokomo shocks are good also. I haven't tried the CRC Clickers yet but I plan too soon.

Thanks

Ride had these a very long time ago......Tamiya also rebadged the Ride ones.......not sure who else has jumped onto the bandwagon.....but yes they are very good indeed....I would not consider building my shocks without my Ride pump!!

Doubt it.

But the prototypes were running TRF shocks!
