the shocks should work great as there just a smaller version of mx bike shocks so will be great for setting up as not more messing about with pistons and oil just a simple turn of a screw to adjust
as for screws has anyone else see some of the front diff house has allen key bolts instead of the bloody wood screws ?

I personally don't have a problem with the wood screws..... but, on the new 2017 ultimate the diff housings are bolted together with machine bolts, not wood screws... you can see them in the picture i posted above.

They got machine bolts because they got the alloy inner diff case. But Like the wood srews in plastic, I'm sure my servo tray would be stripped for at least one screw if they were allen, with the number of time I opened it.

 :D :D Those shocks are a piece of art :lol: :lol: :lol: :good:

i didnt think about the inner alloy diff housing which is why there allen bolts but i cant wait to see the shocks the team drivers will have them in a few weeks so we will all know how good they are

Hi
First race with my RR5 and I came 4th in my heat better than I expected for my 1st national in LSOR
I was running 1st for half the race then lost it on the tabletop jump putting my down to 4th.
Fantastic weekend though some really great drivers.

Might be a little more protected if these new shocks can be mounted with the reservoir on the inside, as per Valentin Peuziat's recent pictures on Facebook....

This is the normal way...




Here it's reversed....
