Ya know. I asked Matt F. some questions about the new shocks; but, cannot remember my questions or the answers.

It's hell getting old...

Oh, here's one. Question: Will the new shocks fit on the XXX-S? Answer: Yes. (But, I didn't ask if they will require aftermarket shock towers...Probably!?!)

Q: Will the new shocks have to be replaced through the battery compartment?

short. Are they much shorter than standard Losi, HPI or AE shocks? Or do the pics angle just make them look shorter? Are they just like the Tamiya ones? Thanks

Not sure what pictures you are referring to.

The JRX-S shocks didn't appear to be short at all. Believe that are mounted in the same hole positions as the Tamiyas which would make them longer than the XXX-S units.

the Shocks look to me to be about the average size. about the same size as kyosho or Yokomo. I am supprized that they are not cartriage shocks.

They are incredibly smooth in their action. MF lifted his JRX-S up with the motor rev'ed up and turned the steering from lock to lock with absolutely no chatter like the older cvds would do on my XXX-S cars. Amazing!

Looks like the Losi boys are having fun at practice for the Cleveland carpet races.

Seems that MF is leading the crew.

The new CVDs will be like the BK bones (ball-bearings on the dogbone pins). The new car's out drives have two different slot sizes to incorporate regular dogbones or the optional ball-bearing bones.

What I saw was not at all like the BK Bones. It was a mini constant velocity joint with a thin rubber boot over it...like a full-sized car's drivetrain.

I guess your description is only about the inner part of the dogbone and mine is about the outer CVD joint at the stub axle...We could both be right!

And I do remember MF saying something about two slot sizes.
