hey what does everyone use for internal shock limiters/ droop limiters? I know that you get a few on the Traxxas shock parts trees but I'd like to just get a bunch of 1mm spacers to use inside the shocks as well as other places on my truck
Either nitro fuel line or fish tank air hose, basically any tubing works.

hey Harry thanks for those links. I had seen both of those but aren't they for 3.5mm shafts? I'm using Traxxas shocks and they are only 3mm correct?
This is the first time I saw the Associated set. Can't remember what diameter the RB8 shocks are, but they should still work fine for your Traxxas shocks.
alright well awesome. I will look into getting a set. what thicknesses come in that losi set?
Last time I bought them, they were labeled for the XXX series vehicles. There are a variety of different sizes, so you can fine tune the droop. Best part is, they're extremely accurate, especially compared to fuel tubing.
Harry, I never knew there was such a thing! I have used O-rings, shock pistons, those little o-ring spacers that come in the rebuild kit, fuel tube..... pretty much anything that looked like it would work, never anything accurate or even very repeatable. Thanks for the tip!
awesome thanks Harry
I never noticed how much more accurate spacers are than fuel tube until I was racing. I ran such a stiff right ft spring on my carpet oval slash that the fuel tube split inside the shock. Bashing with a normal setup the fuel tube was ok. I now use only spacers though...

good to know. Im about to shim my shocks today and will now be looking for a fuel tube alternative. I have the losi 3.5mm kit (x4) listed above but I'm using losi8 2.0 race buggy shocks that have 4mm shafts so Im not sure they will work
