The mardave original shocks were used by Steve Pole and he did well and liked them back in the day. Traxxas shocks were also the correct length as the cobra had quite long shocks on the front. These days you can use any modern buggy shocks but you will need the shorter front shock tower which is available from mardave or fibrelyte. Mardave supply the new car with schumacher shocks these days.

Cheers. I'm just going to meed to watch out for second hand shocks then! The big bores sound great but looks like they're not generic springs meaning not only £80 on shocks, but then £19 or so a pair on springs. The £200+ price tag on the evo takes some getting used to, but them you remember made in UK, and these high spec add ons and it is quite an achievement.


I'd like to go shorter on the shocks where possible. All that drag right up front can't be doing the stability any favours. A ~17mm ride height has been suggested, will look into droop before deciding on a set.

Looks like this chassis had various rear ends on it! Most of these holes will be filled and run with a standard box with evo guts.


If anyone recognises the chassis it looks like it has the motor curl up flattened a bit and a Reedy sticker on the underside.
