TOPIC: Tamiya TL01 Shocks

Tamiya TL01 Shocks 2 weeks 6 days ago #56860

Hello, greetings from the United Kingdom.

It has been bugging me for long enough, my TL01 is still running on it's original dampers and the rears are starting to get harder and harder and the fronts are extremely soft.

What upgraded shocks would people advise for me to upgrade, I have set myself a budget of £25 including postage..

Many Thanks

I'd try rebuilding the shocks before upgrading them on that budget. Are they oil shocks? If you want to get standard CVA plastic oil shocks they would easily fit within your budget.

Thank you for your reply.
I am not too sure on what type of shocks mine are exactly, they aren’t that good anyway.
Attached below is a photo of the front shocks.

Those appear to be "friction dampers", the cheapest type of Tamiya shocks. I'd highly recommend trying some CVA oil dampers. The exact part number to use will depend on the length you need.
