What do you guys think of the adjustability options of XRay shocks?

Im happy with both my TRF and XRAY shocks. I changed original Schumacher shocks to TRF on my Fusion R12. The Tamiyas are much smoother.

I've got both Tamiya and Yokomo shocks and prefer the yokomo by a mile. They're much smoother, easy to build and to maintain. I'd stick with them but if you can't get enough downtravel just buy the longer body (stock are SSS just get the SS ones) and you get the extra lenghth you need.

I have 4 Tamiya cars and their shocks are great. Smooth and durable. I do rebuild them every month or so but I am not sure if that is really necessary as I do not feel any difference. Although when I rebuild them the shock oil is usually grey in color from dirt that gets inside. I also notice that the piston and e-clip will need to be replaced in about 3 month since they do wear and become loose. But I race 2 days a week so they do see a lot of use and abuse.

I also have a Kyosho nitro TC and I've just rebuilt the shocks for the first time in 6 month. When I opened them up to my utter surprise the shock oil inside remained clear with no trace of dirt whatsoever! I thought the Tamiya ones are good but the Kyosho ones seem to be even better, especially considering the abuse and dirt these shocks are subjected to (much worse than electric). I thought about putting them on my Tamiya cars but they are a little bigger and heavier and I did not want the added weight on my electric TC.

JeffReylin; The off road track might be way more dirty, but maybe the dirt particles are larger, compared to the fine dust on a on-road track, which prevent the off road dirt to get into the shocks?

My nod goes to Associated Shocks and Rayspeed bladders.

I like my XRay adjustables for quick dampening changes...if I were to race at only one track I would switch to fixed pistons though. I must admit that the Tamiya TRF shocks are the best I have felt so far.

nope, it's a TC, as in touring car. 1/10 scale on road nitro.
