I was aimlessely searching the web for MZM upgrades when I came across these at R C Mart. I am pretty sure that these are oil filled shocks, but they look sturdy enough. Does anybody have any info on these?

The first that calls to us attention is that they are a little but short that the other models. Its length overall is of 36mm, as opposed to 39mm of the Kyosho and 38mm of the Iwaver. But this does not mean nothing, since when working perfectly like a hydraulic engineer as well, absorbs much but the irregularities, lowering the center of gravity of the car, being its great trick the races Rally type, Autocross with obstaculos or simply running by any surface.

The height of the car lowers 3 mm that we have commented, but does not influence much if you are not going to beat wings, and nevertheless, the tact of the car with put batteries is like the one of a car of greater scale.

I bablefished this part, they do seem just a bit shorter than the standard shocks. I can comprehend just enough Spanish to follow the basics. My guess is the 3mm shorter makes them like the Kyosho Lowdown shocks.

I have them on my OL. I like them better than the GPM and TopCad oil/grease shocks. And they are very well priced. I ordered a second set for my friends MZM which had the TopCad shocks (have a very thin center shaft which is prone to breaking under heavy abuse).
