I think this should work for you:

http://www.mugenracing.com/shop/index.html
This is direct order from the company online shop.

Search for "Damper Spring" and it will show you the stuff you want.

OK here is the deal just got off the phone mith mugen i was missing some parts they are sending them to me tomorow. when i told them about the clutcubell bearing blew out they are sending me new ones. so it is fair to say that they are treating custermers with serial number like gold thanks mugen.

I think it's a dumb idea to use steering linkage bearings inside the pinion gear endbell.

I know the idea to get acceleration in less time, but if the small bearings screwed up, the race is over.

There is an upgrade, the shock bottoms don't have that stupid little G clip anymore. They now have threaded bottoms!

My LHS said MTX4 and MRX4 share the same shock absorbers except the springs.

The new absorber are very good design and quality, as good as Tamiya Shocks

I wonder how are the Mugen shocks compared to the Serpent RCC shocks?

Both have its pros and cons i would say.

My experience with Serpent shocks are that they are well made but a pain in the ass to fix it. Once well built, they work perfectly. I like the idea of the adjusting the piston hole by just a turn of the shocks you get different damping.

Mugen shocks are great to assemble without any hassle and they work superbly!! They are well made and durable. My only complain is if the piston hole adjusting thing is incorporated as like the snakes'.. they would be the best shocks!!!!!

Disclaimer: the above are my personal opinions.. a little biased but my personal ones..

I just converted my XRay to Mugen shocks because I was fed up with them leaking all the time.

IMHO, the Mugen shocks are the best on the market.

No Voodoo necessary to build equal and non-leaking shocks.

Yes, the adjustable Pistons of the S-shocks sound very convenient, but seriously, how often do we change oil on our Mugen shocks?

I usually always run 600 wt except one tight and bumpy track, where I run 450.
Due to the easy nature of the M-shocks, changing the oil once every while is a breeze.

Btw, the new RPP shocks from S have standard pistons.
