Mine's still in the closet as well. I ran it as long as I could, but eventually the whole 'discontinued' thing caught up with me in the parts department. Its okay though...it was a good run while it lasted.

Yeah, the feel of these shocks takes some getting used to. I like them because I can run really thick oil without the slow rebound that usually accompanies running like that.

Get Tamiya P/N 53448 4mm Hard Lock Nut and spacer set. Comes with 4 each 1mm spacer (blue) and 0.5mm spacer (red) to go between the hex hub and the wheel to move the wheels out. Also has 4 each thin silver spacers that go between the rim and the wheel nut.

That was something I mentioned a few pages earlier. If you want to run with the axles sticking out like that, sometimes, if they stick out beyond 190mm, the race operator might not let you run, or may disqualify you after a run (which is sloppy teching in my opinion because something like that should be objected to *before* a race). But if the axles are "in bounds" then you can legally run it. You have to be careful to know about this when you are setting up any car for a race.

Some track operators will not let you run a car like that even if it is within 190 mm because it poses a hazard to the track, to other cars, and even the marshalls, but that is very rare.

But aside from that, I think you should try to run with the 4mm setup "as-is" at least once before you change it. You might find that you like it better than the wider setup. It is rare, but sometimes it does work out that way. There actually are reasons why a narrower track can be better than a wider track in some cases. But it is generally unlikely. Sorry, but I am too tired to try to explain why right now.

They are both the same otherwise
I made a note of the original question about the length of the shocks and I finally got around to measuring the the 49355 shocks. I built mine with 1 black O-Ring space inside the body which should shorten the length by about 1 mm. Fully extended, measured tip to tip (overall length) is about 59 mm. So if I had built them without the O-Ring I think they are about 60 mm. Measured from the center of one mount hole to the center of the other mount hole, the shocks are about 42 mm when compressed and about 52 mm extended. Again the length when extended, if built without the O-Ring would probably be about 53 mm.

I do not know the length of the 49293 type shock.

www.speedtechrc.com has a pretty good listing of TA05 hop ups. Probably the best selection I've seen here in the states.

Does the stock servo saver do it's job well? Necessary to replace it with the Hi-Torque version? Btw, any difference between the black and white hi-torque ones? Thanks!

Well today was a rain day for racing. So we went indoors on carpet/foams. Anyways, car ran pretty good right off the bat in Stock Touring. I ran Parma 28mm tires with 6mm (silver) wheel hexes and a Red axle shim. This gave me clearance for the "stock" LW suspension steering knuckles (I'm actually running Square aluminum knuckles but same clearance issues). This is the route to go if you do not want to use the HPI steering knuckle conversion. Only problem is that you have to run the narrow Worlds 415 suspension blocks to fit inside the 190mm width rule. I would suggest something on the order of 1XB Front/1XD Rear blocks for the front suspension to tuck the wheels in the 190mm rule. I ran 1X Front and 1XD Rear and it was right at or just a tad over 190mm pending in toe/camber.

The track was green since we haven't run carpet foams since March. But car did pretty good. Had the fastest laps of the day. No time to test or practice with the car since I got there late and ended up missing my 1st qualifier since I was building a front diff and changing shock springs and ride height and droop. I ended up using my Asphalt setup I posted a few pages back except the following changes...

Front
AE Yellow springs
Ride Height 4.5mm
Droop 3mm from caster block screw hole (AE droop guage)
Parma Cyan tires (due to green track, otherwise Plaid once bite goes up) 57.5mm starting point

Rear
AE Copper springs
Ride Height 4.5mm~5mm
Droop 4.5mm from bottom of rear hub
Parma Magenta tires (Purple once bite goes up) at 57.5mm starting point

eXpress Monster Stock at 101/32 gearing.

Everything else was same as my asphalt setup. Hopefully I'll get more carpet tuning with it starting next month when we go indoors for the season. Til then it's back to asphalt.... Oh, and I won today too!
