    Question Merv shocks vs ken block shocks

    I was wondering if there is a difference between the mini revo shocks and the ken block shocks besides the oil and springs. Would these work for the merv http://thetoyz.com/Traxxas/Mini-1-16...is/GPM/14014/#? Any advice would be appreciated.

    same shocks, but there are limiters in the KB shocks so they dont extend as much as the merv shocks

    I could be mistaken but I think I remember these shocks actually having different length shafts instead of a spacer within the shock body...
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Well, Traxxas sells the limiter pieces with the pistons, I forget the part number... but they indeed do have limiters. I really recommend using these limiters or something similar... they'll keep the Merv from riding too high, which keeps it from being so flip-prone.

    Traxxas sells the limiters for the KB and Rally. I don't think they would sell limiters to even further limit the travel of the KB/rally shocks.

    Again, he is not asking about stock shocks!
