  1. Hi, I know this is weird, but I am using a dt-03 chassis as a base to build something different based on a kyosho Tomahawk body And I am looking for some nice looking and also usable aluminium oil dampers. I thought about using the Ultima re-re or Optima re-re but are too expensive for this build, so I came out with these: https://www.rcmart.com/xtra-speed-aluminum-front-damper-set-for-kyosho-optima-2016-1-10-buggy-xs-om27001-00068009 https://www.rcmart.com/xtra-speed-aluminum-rear-damper-set-for-kyosho-optima-2016-1-10-buggy-xs-om27002-00068010 I really love these replicas from the original Golden Turbo optima, but I also have lots of doubts: Do you guys think these dampers are good enough or just a stupid copy? I I noticed the new Turbo Optima re-re has a different ones.. These replicas have a small c ring as the mechanism to retain the o-rings as the original ones had.. which seems quite outdated for today standards. Were these dampers reliable? As I asume these dampers, as a replica won't be top notch on feeling I was planning to replace the included o-rings with the red o-rings that new Turbo Op are using today, will they fit? Cheapo Dt-03 don't come with pivot balls for dampers, just some kind of flat screws with lots of play. With these dampers, on the Dt-03 body should I use pivot balls? Any idea of the ball size on the original Optimas? Any help is welcome. Thanks!
  2. Anyone interested in this? Let me know! Otherwise will just stick up on ebay. It's pretty unique... I've never seen another.
