Anybody have a picture of Much More version of MY02M? Does the MY02M come with all graphite conponents? Or is that option?

http://www.much-more.co.kr/bbs/zboard.php?id=car&no=12

This is the Much-More version, with a few accessories - no foam bumper in the kit, no screw washers, no alloy spur gear holder.

I have built one, and although I'm not sure if they are graphite arms (probably not), they are very stiff, as are all the plastic components.

It is a "straight" carbon chassis, mainly longitundinal fibres, this makes it strong lengthways, but quite flexible when twisted. So you can tune the flex with the carbon outriggers.

The one I built was from Much-More UK - we're one of their dealers, and I built one up for them as a demo car. I don't actually have the built one any more.

I don't have any pics unfortunately - it looks just the same as the car on www.much-more.co.kr but without the bumper and a few of the smaller blue alloy bits, e.g. screw washers, spur adaptor.

Default Tech Racing Shocks

Can any of you who have built the Tech Racing shocks tell me a bit more about them? They look very similar to Tamiya shocks...?

Thanks for the answer! Have a few more questions regarding the shocks.

Are the Tech Racing shocks also a 1 o-ring design? Are the plastic parts at the bottom of the shocks similar to the TRF shocks? And finally are the bottom shock end and also the upper end the same size as the TRF shock (i.e. will they fit Tamiya 5mm shock mout balls)?

actually Tech Racing makes the TRF shocks as OEM stuff.
Tamiya's oneway bearing is made by Tech racing too.

the Tech Racing shocks which come with the kit are almost same as the TRF shocks, but the Teflon coated shocks(which is called Fusso Baking Powder Shocks) are lot better than the TRF stuff.
the coating is 3rd times more thicker.

Thanks again for the info. One more question; would it be possible to use the top ends (plastic) from the TRF shocks on the Tech Racing shocks?
