Looks really good, Zoom.
I like the polished steering posts and the steering tie rods. What make are they?
Not so shot on the t/b linkage. Could have turned that servo around so you had a bit more length to play with.

As to being a 17 pounder. wow.
I had a truck that got quite heavy not as heavy as yours but i found it was great in bowls. Skate parks or gravel pits.
With a small amount of speed it would do wall of death and climb out of a bowl with no probs.
I guess the extra weight gave it a bit more g-force which gave some better traction.

looking forward to seeing the truggy.

Wow Zoom, 7 months! That must be record time for writing a review :D


Nah I'm just having a poke, good review. I agree with all your points, however personally, despite my loyal support for IRC, I put the installation at an 8.

My December review wrote:I had some problems during the install however, it certainly wasn't plain sailing. First off two of the screws were missing. This wasnt a disaster as I could use the original shock mounting screws as replacements for them, although they wont be as strong, without a machine thread and a locknut on them. [Rob of course would have sent me out screws if I had told him what happened. I was just impatient ;) ]

Next, one of the shocks was actually binding about halfway through the compression. After a few minutes of pumping the shock manually, putting force into the area of binding, it loosened up considerably though. My guess was the piston had some extra crap that was getting hung up, which ground off finally, leaving it fairly smooth (still binding slightly).

Three of the shock's springs bind up on the shock body a small amount, which detracts from the super smoothness of them. [This is fixed now!] This is a great shame, because they really are silky otherwise. It seems to be because the end and the beginning of the coil that make the shock are at the same point on the top and bottom, making one side slightly taller than the other, causing the spring to bend slightly and rub against the shock body. Having the coil end at the other side from where it starts would surely solve this problem.

The last niggle was that the tierod relocation bracket did not fit in with the stock TVPs perfectly. Its not a huge problem, especially given how few people still have a non extended chassis.


To summarize, some mounting screws were missing, the Tierod relocation bracket did not fit perfectly on stock TVPs and the springs rub on the bodies[not anymore!], and there was some initial binding in the pistons (which disappeared after breaking them in).

However these are very small points and I was VERY HAPPY with my shocks too, and now I have my IRC extended TVPs, I can run without the relocation bracket, looks even better now!

They have stood the test of time and bashing. 7 months later despite a bit of road rash on the caps >.< (owie) they are just as good as when I got them.

Ahh, I had some extra screws since I had him send me only parts of the mounting kit I needed. And all my shocks are silky smooth. :? But yeah they seem great so far, only got a handful of tanks on them and some bashing but hopefuly I can break out some hard core bashing on it soon :)

you said about spings, ending and starting in the same place, we have fixed that issue now since our 2nd batch of shocks, we took that feedback in our hands to out spring makers and they where kind enough to make spings that end and start in opasit postions so now they do not bind on the body etc.

if you where missing some screws you should of emailed us, i would put some out to you in post, not a problem.

Yeah I knew you would have sent me some out straight away, dude. I was just impatient and had screws I could use. Sorry if I sounded like it was a problem.

Great to hear you got the springs problem sorted out. I might have to buy a new set with the upcoming brakes ;)

(I fixed my review to show of your changes with the springs, thanks for telling me)

I was bored so I spent the last 2 hours working on the SUGGY. Filed down the flywheel access hole so hopefuly I can run bump start. I filed down a bump start backplate and put it on the mach. Mounted engine, pipe, fuel lines. Seems ready to run now:) Just need to charge, set trims, set up bump box.
