When you guys use the TRF shocks on the TA05, what is the overall length of the shocks when your finished.

From tip-to-tip or from inside the upper mounting portion-to-inside the bottom mounting portion. Either one will do.

I took a look at the instructions while I wait for my kit, and I noticed they don't mention a specific length that the shocks should be when finished. I just want to compare the length of the TRF units to some of my other shocks.

Thanks.

Will a Cyclone TC2 (43mm x 28mm) fit in the TA05's rather restrictive ESC space? I know my LRP Runner and F1 Pro (40mm x 40mm) can't, there's not enough room between the motor and the back, but there is some more room from the side to the middle... just wondering how much. I can't look at the chassis since I'm away, and there's a TC2 someone's offering...

Thanks,

Hmm.. they probably don't make much of a note of it because the shocks will always be able to extend longer than what your droop screws will allow the arm to move. I know when I built a TT-01 you had to use O-rings inside to adjust the droop.. ugh.. thankfully that's all in the past

I believe the 49293 are not completely blue...the adjuster nut is black...the 49355 everything is blue including the nut. The 49355 are the "Limited Editions".

49355 have the flourine colored bodies, blue caps (top and bottom) that are ribbed. They also have the aluminum adjuster that has an oring in it. And the adjuster is blue. But it uses the black plastic lower spring retainer.


The 49293 uses the aluminum lower spring retainer

They are both the same otherwise

it will hurt the car ALOT if you run it into a log! lol it depends on the carpark. Its its clean and gravel free, and nice n smooth, just adjust your ride height a bit to give it clearance over any bumps or gravel on the surface. Thats if your worried about scratches etc. But if you dont care, just drive it how u like. but definately cover the open holes in the chassis with tape. Id even tape over the motor slot, but check the motor temp every 1-2 minutes.

why do you need to cover the holes? to block the sand and rocks?
I am just worry that if the sand gets into the belt and the gear... what would happen?

I have run mine twice now on a parking lot for club days, first day I taped up the holes, second day, I didn't, and there wasn't any difference realy, actualy, thats a fib.... When I taped the holes up, I had the rear belt flip on me, so not sure if that was a ston trapped....
