They look really sweet. I am guessing they work off air or a pump or something.

Here's how they work.

SKU: MEC2009
The Klick shocks are the newest technological break through for the large scale R/C suspension. They allow the user to set a different compression ratio against the rebound ratio. They have 12 values of adjustment that give you the capabilities to fine tune your set-up. Kit includes: Klick Shocks (2), oil (1), bleeder nipples (2), Spring holders (2), Mount bushing (4) Fits standard FG cars and other similar models. Size: Compressed = 90mm Extended = 111mm center of the mounting points.

After talking another look with my poor old eyes in the first picture I am guessing is a bottle of oil. Funny looking bottle. Then I am guessing the nipples in the same picture are the bleeder valves. [sm=spinnyeyes.gif]

Hi all, im new to this forum. Just want to share my experience about these shocks. My settings were 6 compression 10 rebound for the fronts and 5 compression 10 rebound in the rear . Diff was set position 1 with the proload at basically nothing. I like them alot and I believe my overall performance got better especially turns at high speed. Low speed corning was more stable.

Hi Roninx, I was running blue springs in the rear. Yellow worked pretty well for me too.
