The o-rings are at stormerhobbies.com. Go to the MIP page and it's on the third page and just look for o-rings.

If you are starting new then the cost difference between the two is not much so the Tamiya's become more attractive. But if you are racing and use AE setups from the website, your best bet is to stick with the same shocks the car was designed for and what the team drivers use.
So the shock body, piston and shaft are the only correctly designed parts? NICE. I know a bunch of drivers were using losi offroad pistons in their tc5 shocks as well.
