That's the same code i'm looking for, but it seems a bit hard to find them at a lower price than 50$ per pair here :\

PS: did you have to adjust them or they just fit naturally?

Ya know, I never bothered to see if there was a quick way to service them. I usually just remove the 4 screws in the bottom and detach anything that may be holding it down and do it that way, usually when Im tearing it down to clean it.

Looking at the manual, the casing surrounding the diff does separate in half for the fronts and rears, probably just have to remove the hinge hinge pin holders and front bumper respectively.

As for center, same thing, 4 screws and detach the linkage and/or throttle pivot arm from its mount.

Direct fit, however you need 16mm springs. The RTR comes with 15mm, and even though they do technically fit, the top part of the spring does not fit on the little perch of the adjustment knob on the shock body.

Yeah i ordered these: tlr243019 Should be the same i guess?

Today i went at the track, all was funny, but i noticed i lose the strap string. I did cover the hole with a screw, is is possible to replace the part with a blind (non strap) one?

yes, the tlr243019 is 16mm and they will fit the TLR 16mm big bore shocks.

What strap are you referring to???

if the pull start rope came out, either buy a new pull start assembly or buy a pull start eliminator backplate. You will also need non pull start engine mounts and a starter box.

This is my next purchase, my pull starter is getting worse and worse.

For those that want to eliminate the pull start:

Pull Starter Eliminator Backplate: DYNE1506

Non-Pull Start Engine Mounts: LOSA9156 or LOSA9155 (quick change engine mount set)

dont forget a starter box and batteries for said starter box :-P

I always used a starter box, i think that make the rope came out even quicker.
I covered the hole with a screw for now, seems to work with no issue, i was thinking i could leave it like that ... you think that would create issues?
Is there a difference between LOSA9156 and LOSA9155? I didn't understand very well

9155 allows you to set it and forget it. You never have to worry about the mesh between spur and clutch bell once set.
