While the shocks aren't the same color,you could piece together Schumacher big bore shocks or trackstar big bites...those are black and red while Schumacher are black

I still needed more testing as the weather isnt too stable lately.





In other news, Im not sure if its because the shocks used are traditional long skinny shocks instead of the standard big bore short body shocks, or its just been really hot lately, but Im not getting the same damping effect as big bore shocks. With the same piston holes, same oil and same springs, big bore shocks feels significantly more dampened than the WRC shocks. I have drilled out the top cap to reduce rebound and used a 3 hole piston to increase the dampening. The car felt more compliant and doesnt bounce as much, but still not close to big bore shocks. might change to 50wt or 55wt oil. I will also swap in a set of big bore shocks for testing and see if that helps in handling.

I was pretty careful with handling the bladders when I was rebuilding the shocks but, but somehow one of the ripped again and started puking oil everywhere. Its really frustrating to find these bladders rip for no reason. That alone is enough for me to change out the shocks once in for all, if it werent for the stock gold anodizing on the shocks. It really goes well with the car and if only I can find an aftermarket shock with a similar color, I probably would.
