Default Kyosho fw 05t plus alloy shocks

Just wondering if anybody knows are the shocks on the FW 05t plus the vone rrr shocks? I have been looking at parts diagrams of the kyosho site and numbers are different. I expect that as I think the lower ball end is different and the springs are probably different rating but wondering if the basic shock body is from the vone rrr.

Same shocks (vz075) but indeed different ball end. And the springs are different between the V-one RRR, FW05T and the FW05RR !

They look similar but they are completely different. Caps different, shaft different (ones threaded, other uses "e" clips), piston different (ones teflon, other plastic), I'm pretty sure the body is different too (one accepts more "o" rings). The vz075 is an option for the "+"

This is the wrong thread, but i am about to run in a new FW05T+ and wondered what the gearing is like stock for a track like Wynnum for example? The pinions look really big, wondered if it is going to lack bunch at all? I had a CD3 RTR a year ago and it was way too high
