    Losi Ten T shocks

    What are the part Numbers for the Losi Ten T shocks that fit the Slash 4X4? The D8 part numbers are also welcome if anyone has those?

    So there is only one Ten T shock? Are they the same length front and rear?

    Losi Ten-T/ SCTE shocks are the same. Look for Fr/Rr sets of the shocks. They don't have a pn, just pulled off the trucks from chop shops.

    Losi Ten-T/ SCTE Shocks

    If you want to build your own like I did for not much more here are the part numbers. STRC has a handful of color choices. This is the list from my recent build.

    1 x LOSB2845 Losi Front & Rear Shock Shaft Set (4) (Ten-T) $9.25
    1 x LOSB2904 Losi Front & Rear Shock Plastics & Ball Set (4) (Ten-T) $6.39
    2 x LOSB2906 Losi Shock Rebuild Set (2) (Ten-T) $9.18
    1 x SPTSTLB2825R STRC CNC Machined Aluminum Front Shock Body Set (Red) (2) $13.49
    1 x SPTSTLB2826R STRC CNC Machined Aluminum Rear Shock Body Set (Red) (2) $15.49
    1 x SPTSTLB2904R STRC CNC Machined Aluminum Shock Cap Set (Red) (4) $17.99
    1 x LOSB2905 Losi Front & Rear Shock Boots (8) (Ten-T) $5.49

    Total $77.28

    I added the Red Aluminum Shock Caps. If you didn't buy those it would be $18 cheaper at < $60. Which still isnt bad for a set of good shocks.
    Here is the shock in red anodize.


    Hope this helps ya bud.

    Why did you use STRC bodies and caps and not the Losi ones?

    Because STRC offers other choices of colors. Still the same basic shock. Plus you get to build them and put your wt of oil in there.

    Thanks Digger. I'm going to look into doing that. My lhs can get 20% cheaper than those onlince prices. So That will be my next upgrade. Thanks for sharing...

    Those are the stock springs for the shocks. They also offer silver ( softer ) & gold ( harder ) springs.

    Do you have the part #? It's not on the build sheet above.

    Do you need something to mount them on the slash, i've read that the upper part must use some special kit?

    Which spring will be best for tracks with som fairly big jumps, the stock springs or can the losi springs used in the_jang setup be used with the ten-t shocks?

    Are the 10t shocks supposed to be the "bees knees' of shocks for the slash 4x4 or are they about par with the Big bores and prolines ? Thanks..

    In the list above (( 2 x LOSB2906 Losi Shock Rebuild Set (2) (Ten-T) $9.18 )), this includes the shock bushing to install the shocks onto the tower. I believe you can use shoulder bolts to. I can confirm this for you if you'd like. I made my own bushings for my first install because I like using the Proline Universal Shock mounting kit for quick removal.

    Depends on who you talk to. LOL I own the BBs, Proline Powerstrokes, & the Ten-T's ( one pulled direct from the truck, & one I built myself ). They are all good in their own way. The BB's are really nice and do an excellent job and are at a good cost. The Proline Powerstrokes are going to cost nearly 2x the cost of the BBs and Ten-Ts. They offer dual rate springs, that eat up bumps really well ( if you buy their tuning kit springs ). Kinda pricey IMHO, but I still like them. Out of both of these the Ten-T's offer a really nice plush ride. You really don't need a hard spring or thick oil in them. Probably someone that has the best knowledge on these shocks/ springs is 'thedreadedend'. He got me hooked on these suckers. I believe once you run then and tweak them to your liking you will see what we are talking about. Kinda hard to tell you what to put in your truck because everyone's trucks are setup different, lighter/ heavier, different terrains, and styles of driving.

    Are you building the shocks or buying from the eBay chop shops?

    Awesome!! At least you will have some spare parts to rebuild your shocks if need be. BTW the stock shocks come with the black springs and 30wt oil.

    Great!!

    I'm running 40wt Fr & 45wt Rr on this truck with the black springs. I really need to pick that tuning kit up. I'd like to test the different spring rates myself. I've had good luck with the Silver, Black, & Golds so far. Those tuning kits should help you get more precise on how you want the truck to react. Losi has an awesome Shock oil set(s) to really tweak these puppies.

    LOSA5242 - Losi Silicone Shock Oil Six Pack (17.5,22.5,27.5,32.5,37.5,42.5wt) (2oz) $20.49


    LOSA5240 - Losi Silicone Shock Oil Six Pack (20,25,30,35,40,45wt) (2oz) $20.49
