It isn't that the XRAY shocks aren't any good, it is that the Tamiya shocks are soooo much better. The XRAY/ Serpent shocks are fine for asphalt, the Tamiya ones are just better all the way around.

When I mounted the TRF shocks on my FK I used the stock X-Ray shock collers with Tamiya knuckles (closed-end) ... the ones that Tamiya uses for their steering knuckles.
My "RC technical english" is not so good so could you post pictures of collars and especially of knuckles or try to explain for me what are those parts exactly

Default Parma Foams

Anyone using the Parma foam tires? Do they bolt on with the stock hardware?

How many Xray t1 do you have ? Is it necessary to have another xray, perhaps 1 for play and 1 for race ? recently my Lhs is selling xray t1 very cheap ( 20 bux cheaper though ) but it only last until 30 January 2005.

You can't use 28mm foam tires in the rear of the car without some sort of modification. You need to grind down the rear arm with a Dremel tool. I posted a picture that shows where, and how much a page or two ago in this thread.

They work fine if you get them built correctly, but they're difficult (for most of us, anyway) to get built correctly. The Tamiya shocks build easily and are super smooth since the shock bodies and pistons are flourine coated.

They work perfect on my FK without any mods when mountiing the rear shocks on the inner hole of the rear A arm. OR you can also add a small 1 mm wheel spacer when you mount the rear shocks on the outer most hole on the A arm.

I hope this hleps.

Hope some of you guys are still up. I have an early race tomorrow and I have put my Team Tamale Chubs on and need to know if by measuring my droop, can I still get the same settings from under the chub screw?

I don't have any composite chubs to compare and I doubt anybody, but me, will be running Tamales tomorrow.

Thanks!

The carpet front shock tower is nice. You'll also need the ackerman extensions, and shock springs.

team tamale has shock retainers that lower the mount for the shocks.If you want to run 60mm tire, that is the best way to get the ride hight down.
