For the lack of time, I haven't read every page but I haven't seen this ? either...

the shocks appear to be the same but the springs in the pics. look different. Will the springs still be the same?

Thanks

Good question, according to the site the shafts are shorter so I dont know if the springs will fit.

As I said before if you look at the shock cap you can see, or atleast I think you can see that it is about half the size. Along with the shafts, I am not sure if the overall length of the shock is different, but I will find out.

tarheelquality,

I assume you were referring to me when you said Steve What I'm hoping to do (and it all depends on R/C America's scheduling of release of parts) is to have the parts available at the same time as the kit. So at the time of pre-order confirmation, you can actually put in another order just for parts and we can combine and ship that together with your kit. This is all assuming that the parts will be available the same time as the kits. We will of course put in a large order for parts as soon as some part numbers are available to us. Our goal with every kit we stock is full spare and hop-up parts support...down to the nuts and bolts

I am sure Bobby is correct.....but the diff between the 2 are very minimum, for me, I can barely see any different between these 2 shocks.
The 1 on the left is FK05, and the one on the right is T2......they look the same....may be the T2 were using the old shocks for pics only.

Hmmm...both those shocks pictured do look the same. It is possible that they didnt put the new shocks on for pictures, but I do know that the car I held had different shocks. I guess we'll see what happens.

The shocks are the same except for shortened shock shafts and cups that lower the springs (it's on the specs link of the XRay page...). The Shocks are shorter so the piston is in the "sweet spot" more.

Like I said..........the chance that your infomration are more uptodated are 300% higher then those pictures..........since XRAY mentioned they REDO the shocks, I think we all want to see something different then the one they had on the pictures...
