kyosho shocks are great for the tf6, but very expensive one of the most expensive, and rebuild kits are expensive as well, I use tamiya shocks for all my cars, you can get them for 42.00 the black ones are hard to find, so dont know wether you want to put blue shocks on your car, they are however the best shocks for the money,

Switched from my crappy ae shocks to switch to tamiya. Very good switch. Well worth the money I spent on them they seal well and work well. Provided you need gold orings and bladders

yes, those are the trf shocks you want. Make sure it is the hard coated ones though, as those have a coating that makes them smoother than just the metal ones. (it looks like teflon pans)

another option would just be getting different springs for the sprint. While the shocks are not amazing, a set of softer springs really will help handling, and be cheaper than new trfs.

Thumbs up

I would go with the Tamiya shocks. I have a set on two cars, one set has been around for several years. Still work great. Well worth the money.
