If you bought the alloy shock bodies...you are in for a surprise!!! You cannot use the old version O-ring cap!! It does not fit....take a closer look!!! I found out tonite!!

KY do you want some alloy shock bodies for your Evo 2 shocks????!!!!!!!

I am going to try and use the front shaft in the original long bodies...I reckong I will be able to use the lowest holes on the new shock tower..........maybe!!

I can leave the shafts at Harmony if you still want??!!!!

I would be surprised if they hold their 'like new' performance for more than 20 packs.........why did you want them to last forever??
it's hard to get my hands on batteries here, and they are twice as expensive as in hk

maybe it's a better idea to get the batteries from hk

haha....its a direct replacement for the Evo 2!!!! I just didn't realise that they had changed so much. Looking at the Evo 2 shocks, they also have a different length ball ends and a flatter spring holder to carry the spring length.....I guess a conversion would be too difficult...just buy the new Xray Evo 2 shocks - Full set!!!

Haven't got a clue on the overall length....ernestf might be able to help. As for Atlas shocks....I've tried those already....don't forget to change to MIP O rings if you do!!

Actually...that might not be a bad thing....especially with the new rear shock tower...they use to be too short on the old shock tower.....now where did I put those Atlas shocks??!!
