The front shocks from the old T1 (serpent shocks) might just do it, i have seen and talked to some drivers and they liked it better than the std assoc shocks. the good thing is that the shocks are waaay easier to get right, and without bubbles left in them, and you dont have to take the shock apart to change hole/piston..just good things!

hey mike, I dont' think they make a graphite upper plate specificly for teh t1r, but you can use the woven graphite from the evo 2, which works with all xray's. here's the part number: 301161.
here's a link http://precisionrc.com/cgi-bin/cart.pl?BR=XRY&DT=2

Hey Mike you got a T1R. Thats 8. And HobbyTown says that Xray isn't that popular.

Why would you want to try any other shocks besides the Xray shocks?

Lets see they leak, aluminum on plasticis a bad idea and the shock adjustments are all cocked and twisted, dont like the bottom piece of the shock body at all. Look I like the car just dont like the shocks and wanted to try something else thats all.

I just ordered some alloy bodies. Any idea how to get the bottoms off without the "special tool" I got it used. Thanks for the help. Kevin Mac.

The plastic caps on the bottom will be a biotch if you dont have the special tool. They will fit real tight on the aluminum bodies. You may even have to file the botton flange part of the body a bit to fit properly. The aluminum bodies are a lot better than the plastic once built. No leaks, very smooth and consistent.

Turn them anticlockwise for about 30 deg and then pull. They are bayonet fit. No need for the special tool...I've never had problems with tem. If you get oil on the bottom caps just use a piece of tissue to hold them.......
