New to Tekno. Looking at the parts list, are there only one length to both front and rear shocks? Only one shock shaft and shock boot part numbers listed (non-optional parts).

Correct front and rear are the same now. IE: Shaft is TKR6017, option is TKR6017T

I guess if you want the taller rear tower you need the optional XL shock shafts for the rear shocks

Default Gear Box

Anyone have an extra front gear box they could sell. I was putting my kit together yesterday and put the front screw in on the A block without the bumper and broke some of the plastic that holds the small screw underneath for bottom cover. Thanks they show out of stock on the Tekno site.

You'll actually want the long shock bodies, not the shafts.
The tall rear tower with the long shock bodies makes the car a little less responsive and possibly a little easier to drive (depending on you driving style).

I have a mp9 tki4. Do you know if the way of driving this car is very different? In coparation with the Kyshos are more durable?

So we should use the 122mm shafts in the 137mm bodies with the longer rear tower? just making sure i read that correctly.

Ok, thank. I haven't seen the shock body yet. I think someone just asked but would I run the regular shaft with that or the longer shaft?

I can't comment on the driving style of the MP9 as I haven't driven in quite a while and when I did it was only for a few laps. Durability wise I would like to think that our car is at the top of the list of all the current buggies on the market.

Yes, that's correct.

Keep the shaft that comes with the car (the 122mm one, TKR6017 or TKR6017T) and use the 137mm body (TKR6060).

By running the tall tower with the long body and short shaft you'll maintain your up and down travel but you'll gain better volume compensation. The shock won't pack quite as hard and it will be more linear throughout the stroke. It should also be more consistent over a long run. It's a subtle change but one I feel is worth trying. If you're track has a lot of switchbacks or quick "S" sections the short tower should be faster. If your track is bumpy, especially in areas where you are heavy on the brakes, the tall tower should be more forgiving.
