Then you'll need 1 of these xray ball joints:

And one of these xray ball ends (unless you want to try and take out of your xray shocks):

...I used the xray aluminum collars as the Tamiya ones where "cheezy"

You will also need 4 - 3 mm lock nuts

On the ball connectors, the shocks come with gold ones, so the colored ones above are just if you want to "color coordinate",


OK, now for the front shocks, you will use 2 of the ball connectors with 3 mm nuts for the top into the shock tower, and 2 of the Xray ball joints with the ball ends put in them on the shock shaft, you'll need to cut the ball end just above the "nut" looking thingee ...where this red line is:



This will go on the bottom with a 3mmx10mm screw into the arm, I made the from shocks 65mm ling

Now the rear shocks, you'll use the short connectors in the tamiya set for the bottom of the shock, you will use 2 of the ball connectors with 3 mm nuts for the top into the shock tower, for the arm you'll screw 2 of the ball connectors into the arms, I made the rear shocks 61.5mm long


xray springs work perfectly


I'm getting a set of these:

That I *think* should work instead of the ball connectors were I can put a 3mm screw through them (the ball conectors make me "nervous")
