Shorty shocks for the T4 look like they're almost ready. Their Facebook page seems to be the best source of info.

Not much info in the review that can help with assembly.

Also identifying the springs on the number of coils is very difficult in my opnion. Just package them seperately and mention on the bag what is what so you don't have to spend 15 minutes looking and feeling.

Is 1.2mm the standard hole in the pistons ? I didn't measure them since i just got them. I filled them with 350 Losi oil and first test will be next week thursday. Looking forward to it because it is a nice concept.

Sorry Spillertwo I didn't link that review thinking it would help you build them I just thought it would be good to have it linked here for those interested in TSHOX.

Don't worry about building them, they go together very nicely and once you have all the parts laid out and the instructions to hand I'm sure you will see how they fit together.

Couple of tips when building are that you can use a 3mm arm reamer on the plastic guides to reduce break in time and when fitting the large plastic guide in the top cap I use a wheel nut driver to seat it as this way I can apply even pressure around that part. Neither are essential tips, just handy.

Hope you enjoy your seriously awesome shox =D

No problem :-) All info is alway welcome.

The shox went together pretty smoothly but i just feel that it takes too much time to understand the manual which is limited to five pictures and some explanation. So a detailed instruction video would have been nice.

I had one incident in that i broke one of the white delrin guides for the top mounting. It was not perfectly round and i pushed to hard on it and it broke. Have to order them again and will use a temporary solution until i get them.

Looking forward to testing them. First test will be with the yokomo springs that i have today on the car so i can get a feel for the shox themselves. Next test will be with the carpet soft and medium springs from T-Shox.

Okay, the design of these shocks is pretty brilliant. No bladder or air to worry about and springs to precisely control rebound from a shock that builds perfectly dead each time because it's not pressurized. We'll see how they are on the track in a couple of days.

Am I right in my understanding that the short version of the Tshox are a direct fit for an Xray T4?

Yer video would have been nice! But never came....
Take note the shocks come with Yokomo O-rings not the innovative new type described on the website.
