I wish I had seen this back when I was assembling mine...the only ugly looking thing on my xray are the scratched up shock rods. Now I need to buy 4 new shock rods=approx. $19. And the part #970050 ( the O-rings) anyone know where to get these speedtech is sold out.

Default Anyone have the part numbers for those Serpent...

shocks? Do you need two sets of rears? Man, I dislike the stock shocks after having some JRX-S ones.

Thanx for that. It worked for me

This Team Tamale tool is a must have for any tool box. Not only will it keep you from scratching your XRay Shock Shaft, I use it when building any shocks.

Hi to all,
I just got this car & trying to learn about it as quickly as possible.
If you like & want to give me a heads up, I appreciate that too.
Now my question, is there a 3rd party MFG who make parts for this beautiful car.

As long as the scratches are not too deep, put the shafts in a Dremel and use 1500 to 2000 grit WET sand paper to remove the scratches.Then use a good polish to bring back that nice XRay shine.(What have you got to lose,shafts are screwed anyway )
While I was learning how to build the shocks,I scratched one, Did above,and used the shaft.This was over 6 months ago.No leaks,works fine(by the way,mine had two rather deep scratches in it.) and still use that shaft today.
Don,t spend all that money on new shafts if they can be fixed!!!
