When using tamiya shocks, are you limited to what droop you can run, or is there a longer piston you can run, or different ballcups for the bottom which increases the length of the shock compared to the xray one.

I've run my T2 for three races now and I've noticed that there is a lot of play between the pivot balls and ball joints causing particularly my front wheels to feel real loose. I can't tell where my camber setting really is because of the excessively play. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, what did you do to fix it?

Default play

The small bearings are the root cause of the play... The 05 big bearings gave less play but more rotating mass...
I assume the 415 and the RDX are the same (similar size of small bearings)

No it's not the bearings. It's definitely the ball joints and pivot balls

change your setup.... mybe lower the shock angle slightly inward..

it depends, if the only reason your car is not handling well.not your driving skills. then mybe changing something will works...for my case it did change my car handling..big time....
