I strongly recommend these TiNi Shock shafts if you ever bent one of your TEKNO stock shock shafts. It is a bit more expensive than the stock one but it is much stronger and smoother.
You need to have the clamp tool to make sure you do not scratch these when you install them.

If you want to make the smoothest shocks out there even better, add these shafts and the delrin guides. I've done both on both my et48.3 and sct410.3 and they have the best shocks I've ever owned in 25 years of building top end rc vehicles..


A year later and after adding the EB48.4 kit to the Tekno collection just after writing the original review, i can say that with all 3 vehicles using these upgraded shock shafts now through probably 60 battery packs combined, tons of laps at the track, many different oils and pistons, plus tons of crashes as i usually try and go too fast, i have yet to need to replace or repair even one out of the 12 Tekno TiNi shock shafts I ordered along with my kits. Like I said last year, if you want to make what i think are the best 1/8 scale shocks on the market just that much better, just add these plus the Delrin guides (if your kit didnt come with them) to your set of shocks and youll be super happy. I still have never had a Tekno shock leak or fail in any way, and while ive been 100% happy with the stock Tekno shafts during the times ive used them, these ones really are even better...

The only weak part/complaint that I have with the Tekno 16mm shocks is basically the same thing as to what every other Tekno ET, EB, or SCT owner Ive taked to or read about complains about and that is the stock shock shaft boots suck because they get holes in them so easily, then they actually trap dirt inside because it loses all its velocity at the range or by drawing. So if you think you have what it takes to write cover the shock shafts are made with very soft rubber that far too easily gets holes blasted all the way through by small bits of dirt and rock that before dust/dirt covers that hide these nice shafts from being seen and apparently with the Tekno big bore shocks is the rubber dust/dirt boots last maybe one or 2 packs when running on dirt before the rears especially have multiple holes in them. Not sure why they are so thin and soft and weak, but they really are kind of a joke how long, or not long that is, that they last before they are letting moderate amounts of dirt in because either the front wheels or another car sprayed some smaller bits of dirt and rocks right through the rubber boots. Many guys use cheap black baloons from Amazon with far better results than what Tekno offers... Even if they thought you could drop 7 or 8 bucks on a new pair every time you want to go race, but thats a shitty idea haha...

You could say Im sold on Tekno making not only fast but the most durable "race ready" vehicles ive ever used or seen...
