Thanks for the help, yes it does help as I did not find the official spec for the trf lenght, but I did read they replaced pretty much any touring car shock, and tamiya touring cars apparently have 55mm.
I ordered the trf anyways, as they are good shocks and I see in the kit pictures there are two different rod ends you can choose from to thread on the shock shaft, longer and shorter. Hopefully 55mm is the shorter one and the longer one is like 5mm more. Anybody can confirm that?
If that is not high enough I'll find even longer rod ends or try to make a custom shock tower with aluminium.
Cant wait to see how the escort body will look with my fake tall sidewall rims/tires and long suspensionn arm set !
kind of like this real life one:
