I was loking to get a Tamiya TT-01 and it says that it has Friction Shocks? What are they and how do they differ from Oil filled shocks?

The "dampers" is only spring holders, no damping what so ever. Just the springs to hold the car up which results in an extremely bouncy ride..

they have a bit of rubber inside them (instead of a piston) and this rubs against the plastic body to slow the shock down a bit...and it creates a dampening effect like oil does in oil shocks...

well atlesat thats what i think it does, i know they have a big of rubber instead of a piston

its a rubber sleeve. the piston is just a round solid head that slides inside the rubber sleeve to create some damping... it can be adjusted by using different grease inside... still its an rtr type system and cant hold a candle to oil filled shocks...
