Nice. I need to fix my front MT410 shocks and buy a pair of rears so then I can have a spare set.
Oh and I know it doesn't show in the pictures but the shock bodies are different colors between the models.
From left to right MT410, NB48, Arrma, ET48.
I know the frustration my Kraton blew the esc and motor. It is being fixed under warranty. I have been waiting a month and a half for parts to come in.
Meanwhile my MT410 is being delivered today. Everyone stay with Arrma you guys switching to Tekno are making the Tekno upgrade parts scarce.
I cancelled my Typhon V3 in the middle of March because I had a feeling that Arrma was gonna become stagnent for a long long time.
I’ve noticed that here in the UK some RC websites have even removed listings all together. Even sites that are showing them have an ‘unknown’ availability date which imo will be at least several more months. And the parts even longer. The other potential issue is new product coming out Typhon V4 etc..
I’m still here on the Arrma forum because I want an Arrma but I am going to wait at least a year after the cluster flunk has been sorted out. Their are other brands out there to be discovered in the meantime which is what I did. I got a Hyper VS which I am super impressed by and there is no shortage of parts, the only thing that gets to me about the Hobao stuff though is I can’t find a community of owners anywhere other than one single thread on RCTech forums which is kinda annoying when you try and find solutions to things etc.. This forum is excellent so when Arrma is sorted out I’ll be back here with one....... eventually. Feels a bit like a video game you can’t wait to play but it’s release date keeps getting pushed forwards.
I know that you can use shorter or longer shocks and the only negatives that I can think of are:
Shocks too short: need to push droop screws in further, reducing the total suspension movement.
Shocks too long: reduce shock compression distance and total suspension movement as the shock body is longer.
I’m not the OP but from my experience it kept getting moved. Mine went like this. Early March, expected May 2. May 2 came and went, moved to June 5, I cancelled. I kept an eye on it. June 31, August then the items disappeared from some stores. I’m in the UK.
