These shocks came on my rc10gt I just got and I thought they were basic duratrax gold shocks. I just noticed they have a bleeder in the cap. Can anyone identify these?

Hello!

Thanks for your help!

Peter,

Schumacher Cougar 2000 / Cat 2000 parts mostly... some can be used for both.

Yes those are CRP steering blocks for the Blackfoot, Monster Beetle and other related trucks.

Thank you so much... Funny enough they are both the exact same (same side) so it looks like I have a pair of right side steering blocks :D

I've got a transmission and a couple of shocks I need help identifying. The trans looks like a 6 gear of sorts and I'm not sure on the shocks. I'm pretty sure the picture with the two shocks are for an ultima but I'm not sure if they're kyosho or aftermarket, and as for the picture with the single shock I have no clue what it could go to :?:

Someone made side plates out of carbon fiber and fitted thorp 48 pitch gears for an associated rc10 6 gear trans in it, along with the outer diff. Kind of strange but not the first time I've seen an open 6 gear. Not sure what actual advantage you get.

Pretty sure the first set of shocks are Tamiya.

Looks like it was laid down for a dirt oval setup possibly? I want to make one now haha!

First two shocks are Yokomo and the trans looks like someone put 6-gear innards inside a Trackmaster Powerglide belt trans.
