I don't think the TRF shocks can get long enough to use with the stock shock towers. You'll need to get the lowered towers to use them I think. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I think they will work if you use the long shock tops.

TRF shocks can be used with std towers. You just need to use the normal Schumacher bottom ball joint, and build them to std shock length. From memory this needs to be 64 front, 67 rear. I could be wrong on that though.

If you look on the schumacher site, i am fairly sure that any of our "UK" setups will be with TRF shocks, and AE springs. Towers will probably be the low ones, but i guess this is usually stated. If they are low towers, use the same rear location as the sheet says, but use the middle hole on the front (short towers have different top mounting points). If they are Teemu towers, then you can use the same hole as the sheet says.

Hope at least some of that makes sense!!

Speaking of Tamiya shocks, I just got my set today

I noticed that the instructions tell you to place an o-ring between the piston and shock body to limit the shafts travel. Is this how everyones is running theirs? Or can i just leave them out?

Well it depends on the length of the shock bottom. I leave the o-ring out and use a shortened Schumacher ball-cup so I can use a wide range of spring lengths

Ok, I left the o-rings out and with the standard tamiya shock end I've got a length of 62mm - with an extra couple of mm to play with.

Wow, are these shocks smooth, and so easy to build

Sounds great, make sure your rear shocks are at least 1mm longer than the fronts
