I now run these on my Tamiya M05 in place of 3Racing shocks (my original upgrade). They work at least as well but the adjusting collars have a better action and are less likely to move by themselves. These also look good and have a quality feel. They come assembled but empty without oil. I filled them with 50wt front and 40wt rear. I kept the supplied springs on the front (3kg I think) but put softer 2kg springs on the rear (available separately here).
As these are big bore normal 3Racing and Tamiya springs won't seat properly.
They are a few mm shorter than some other M Chassis shocks so bear that in mind too.
For indoor racing on a smooth high grip surface I am finding these perfect.Looks very nice and works well. Nice product from Trackstar.
