I'm surprised that most Mini Z "shocks" are really just springs and friction dampeners? This looks like and actual oil shock. It should work better.
Do they make one for the new 2.4 F-1 cars??

Hard to tell but it almost looks like a thru shaft shock.

There is a re-packaging delay due to the release of MR-03. Stay tuned. Product is heading to your local dealers soon.

I received the news yesterday from Atomic-HK.

Hello! I just want to say thank you for help with updates and info on Atomic parts for Mini-Z. I think I can speak for everyone in saying we appreciate your being part of this forum.:D

A couple questions regarding the new Atomic Oil Shock: Is this an actual sealed-type oil shock? And also, what would be a rough-estimate regarding the product release date?

Thank You!:D:D:D

I don't have a sample of the product in hand I'll forward your question to the design and sales team. Wait for my response.

I finally got around to mount this shock. I really like it. It is double the weight of the Kyosho shock, but adds some nice features, and it looks really good.
Total weight, filled with oil is 2,8 grams (+ mount)
One thing though. The oil bottle that came with it had leaked out inside the package.

Here is my review:

Thanks:)
It depends on how much stroke you give it, but on my car I mounted it with a length of 42,55 mm in resting condition.
Max stroke is 44,58 mm.
Measured center to center between the mounting points.

I think 42 mm is about the minimum length between the mounting points.

Thanks for the advanced report. Here is a photo of the shock installed with new AR-271 94mm motor mount and lightweight diff.

Can anyone post pics of this mounted on the mr03 chassis. Totally stumped on how it should fit.

Rune's pics show it mounted with the PN shock mount. Anyone have pics with the atomic mr-03 mount?

cleeeeaaaannn. I guess you have to have that style dps in order for it to fit?

No, Originally I had it on the Atomic 98 DPS, I use the 106mm DPS converted to 98 so that the shock is at an angle. You also need to solder the transponder pigtail wires directly to the battery contacts.
