If used as a disk damper, it works with most (if not all) mounts out there. Otherwise, as a tri-shock it has to be used with the PN 94-98 V3 mount (with long arm) or their newest 94-96mm mount. Our new motor mount, which is due in about 2 months, will also be compatible.

I personally use Sweep Racing 450 cst oil. This is about the equivalent of Associated 35 wt oil. I make sure that I fill it up to the brim and then bleed it out so that the shock shaft pushes out 75% of the way. This is the rebound, and yes, it is quite a bit, but I like how it feels. It makes the car accelerate much harder.

As a little side note, please note that this is meant to be used as a DPS or Tri-shock, not a combination of both.

Ran the kit last night at High Speed in NC as a tri-shock with a K yellow main shock and was very happy with the feeling it gave the car. I have been running a DIY side damper with the K-yellow main shock for a while, which worked well, but the car transitioned faster and returned to center better with the tri-shock setup. Thanks RR for a nicely engineered product.

Any one have any idea about the thread sizes on these shock bodies? I have ruined three of them now just trying to turn the nut. Today it was a brand new one.......

3mm. You can get the tap and die on tower hobbies for about 5 bucks each. Well worth it though.

Just found out.....ended up buying a 2.5 first, cause one of my buddies said it was smaller than 3mm. Oh well, I have both now The shocks after running one pass through the tap and die are worlds different! Well worth the $20 I paid for the three items....

Anyway, thanks Matt!

Hi CT, I'm running a full RR MR-03 and i am very happy with it!
i just miss the motor mount that will be the cherry on top of the cake
What grease would you suggest for the side shocks?
At local RCP,which has med-low grip, i am ok with Kyosho 5K,
in the K top shock i use 400 cst, don't remember which brand.
next month i will run a big event in Latina, not so far from Rome, there will be a huge track with ton of grip.
what range of grease and oil do you recommend to bring?

Thanks

Sergio.

I run 400-500 CST, depending on how bumpy the track is. The smoother, the heavier I go.

On the side shocks, I pretty much always use 15000 wt grease. Only when the track is super bumpy or the grip is poor will I go anything lighter. This is with the Kyosho Colored Diff Grease. I don't know about other stuff, if it is thicker or how it compares.
