So the bottom of the shocks I want for my Radio Shack Golden Arrow have too small of a hole on the bottom and a bigger hole on the top. Here are the shocks I want to use on the rear of the Golden Arrow:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-Sla...75c94633a6a34a

As you can see, theres a bigger hole at the top of the shock. Theres a thicker bolt to hold the shock in place on the Golden Arrow at the bottom end of it. I was hoping to either turn the shock upside down or drill out a bigger hole on the bottom? Would it hurt anything to mount it upside down?

Or do they make shocks this length that have bigger holes on each end?

I don't own the Radioshack Golden Arrow but I have the Nikko Thunderbolt with 540 motor. Golden Arrow is a "copy" of Thunderbolt / Bison / Rhino because Radioshack distributed and rebranded many Nikko cars.

Thunderbolt´s Pinion is 17T and 0.8 metric module

Interesting about the Nikko gears being 0.8P. I have in my GA a spur gear from a Traxxas Cat and the parts manual lists a 32P for the pinion with an option for a bigger gear. I have a lot of time on the GA with the Cat gear with no signs of wear.

These are the equivalences between metric (Europe/Japan) and imperial (USA) gears. It is essential to know this if you are looking gears for toy / hobby RC cars .

0,8 metric is compatible with 32 d.p. and 0,4 metric is compatible with 64 d.p.
0,5 or 0.6 metric is NOT compatible with 48 d.p.
