Sakura 54mm PTFE coated shocks

Sakura 54mm PTFE coated shocks

3Racing have released their new Sakura 54mm touring car shock which has been given a complete overhaul in terms of design and materials used. Can be used on most high performance touring cars thanks to the long 11mm shaft stroke, the new 7075 hardened aircraft grade aluminium shock body complete with PTFE coating gives the shock body the smoothest operation and superior durability. The newly designed shock cap now includes a bleeder hole for easier release of excessive shock fluids while the spring preload adjuster has been given a hex shape instead of the usual round shape for easier grip. The pistons and shaft liners have been upgraded to CNC machined POM for the best fit and durability and complimented with titanium nitrite coated shock shafts for the smoothest stroke actions.
