I had placed the order for the 49293's already, but my LHS nor I could determine if these are the short shock bodies, like the mini-cva, or not? Anyone know for certain?

Guess I'll see when they come in.

Those are mini.. all of them are, except for offroad ones, but they're marked TGM-02, and F1 ones which are marked F201, but those ones in particular are mini blue ones.

I actually noticed the smaller bottle of oil they included first, before I even took the actual dampers out of the pack. They're a good cheap upgrade for any Mini driver if they're stuck with spring shocks still, you just have to find someone interested..

I bought a couple sets of the special blue a while back (matches the TA05's hopups great, as well as my mini!). And yeah, they don't have alum retainers, plus, the blue ones you can buy aren't the same blue.. I guess they'll come out with a special blue retainer set sometime..

OK, I feel better. I ask because the set my buddy picked up is blue aluminum and longer. he had them on his mini and moved them to his TA04. I'm Mid way through my 05 build as I type this... I'm really liking this car. By me in NY Tamiya cars are only used for street play or TCS... I think I'm gonna enjoy upsetting people with this car. Looking forward to running it as often as possible. Might leave the TC-3 home once in a while during indoor season.

If they're TRF dampers, they're short for sure..

That is the older set, the 49355 is the newer version, and all of them are the same length. the short plastic ones in the picture are the Super mini CVA shocks. The longer plastic ones are the mini CVA shocks. the Super minis first came out way back when the TA03R was released and they used them on the front.

Those are the ones my LHS ordered for me... Glad to see they come with the alum spring retainers...

Would there be a reason I'd want to get the 49355 over the 49293's?

And thanks for the PM TR... Good info.

The only reason is to get the aluminum adjuster. I like the fact it has the o ring that keeps it from adjusting itself.

Just raced mt TA05 last night and it handles preety decent considering there is nhop-ups just bone stock, I just brought it so I can try it out but my main car was tweaked so I decided to run it, It was carpet racing, car has alot of traction but my motor got hot, My gearing was 100T/23 (64 pitch) and running a binary pro stock 27, my temp reading was 145-150 ( is this really too hot or can I go up a two) I placed second on the mains and was TQ'd but the guy behind me bumped me and spun my car but at least without any hop-ups I placed second.

Depending on the track, that goes from pretty much undergeared to rediculously undergeared, you are geared at 9.78:1 and you need to be down in the region of 8:1, I would go up to a 27 at least....

I just raced mine at a local club on a tarmac parking lot, never run it before, and it was COMPETITIVE to say the least, able to keep up with XRay's and Yokomo's easily, considering these guys have been running their cars for a good while and are good drivers, I think this is VERY promising.

ok then I will try to go up to a 27 ( will try baby steps first) but what would be the optimum temp for a motor, Track temp last night BTW was prolly 65-70 F.
