They come in red or blue. The part # I found at SpeedTechRC was TAM49355 which is the special edition version. Check this out

You could anodize a set of shocks to any color you would like. I did it with a set of trf shocks and xray shocks. Both sets work great. But my trf shocks were 3 year old shocks and were not flourine coated. So I don't know if the flourine coating will get ruined.

As long as there's a trf shock thread, I thought I'd post a problem I'm having with mine on my Mi2. No matter how tight I close the top after changing the oil, after 1 run, they are "weeping" oil out of the top, and lightly on the shafts.. I've put a rebuild kit in and it STILL does this. I'm using the clear Orings in the bottom..Any input would be appreciated

That's the right part number, they're fluorine coated and dark grey.

Fran,

had the same problem on my Mi2 last year. Every time I did an oil change all my shocks were still full... and almost no air in them.
I think it comes from overfilling them though, since the oil builds up just a tiny little over the edge, if you put the blatter on just now, you have a slightly overfilled shock(you can see this when the blatter comes out when you put it on). The shock now needs to loose this extra amount of oil and does this very slowly since all rubbers are high quality. that's why you find oil at every exit of your shock.
Anyway, try not to overfill in the future because this gives you less compensation volume and changes damper characteristics.
