I just finished building my fk05 last night. I must say very impressive, with the exception of the shocks. And before everyone starts flaming, you must understand, after you have built and used Tamiya shocks it's hard to compare. On that note has anyone had much success using the Tamiya shocks on the Xray?

Can you use yokomo shocks on the xray. I love the way the yokomo shocks build, plus I have all the springs, rayspeed bladders and so on. Or should I stick with the stock shocks from xray.

Take into consideration that this is my first xray.

plastic shocks are awesome and build up easy, keep the weight down stick to the plastic shocks if your planning on racing it.

just stick with the xray shocks. They do work very good if you build them correctly and are adjustable without having to dissasemble the whole thing. Also, you might as well get the xray springs because once you go xray you never go back.....unless you dont like quality and a fast car. As far as the white rims....who cares. No one uses them any ways.

does anyone have a better way of building the xray shocks than what the manual states. I spent over 45 minutes trying to get the rebound right for each shock with no luck.

The Yokomo shocks are too short to work satisfactory on the Xray, with the long shock ends it can work better, i did only try with short ends on a friends FK.

Nope...we run diffs front and rear on carpet...glad to have dual diffs

I would have liked to see the shock bodies though. I broke 2 rear shock bodies on my EVO2.
