As most will agree the landing gear that comes with the kit isn't the greatest. I've just fitted MA's tuff struts, had to elongate the holes a bit but it’s definite improvement I reckon.

Are those the Tuff-Strut I or the Tuff-Strut II? Whatever they are, they look nice.

The lower the better.

I put on a pair of JR Vibe 50 struts. Very nice.

Those are TSII's.

The original TS's are much heavier.

My fury with JR Vibe 50 struts.... A vast improvement from the stock black MA struts. No modifications required to fit just remove your stock struts and bolt the Vibe ones in their place!

Nice heli's guys. Just a finishing touch suggestion is the Traxxas part number 5296 90 degree exhaust fitting. Gets the exhaust pressure line down to where you almost can't see it.

Great tip and solution for the pressure line/canopy clearance, thanks.

I may be mistaken because it's been a long time since the MA days, but I believe Tuff-Struts I is low profile like above. Tuff-Struts II was the same material, but a higher profile that sat the machine about an inch and a half higher. I set up one bird with each. One for short grass/asphalt, the other for fields with taller grass to keep the T/R out of the crap. The low profile looked much nicer, but the taller ones came in handy at times.

Those are TS II's pictured. These are what you have seen on the Stratus and Fury for quite sometime. I did have some TS I's on my Spectra G, and they were much bigger and heavier.

Those are tuff strut 2's. The 1's were much taller and thicker.

I knew it was one or the other. The difference is the height and the thickness. Now I've got to dig up some old photo's......dang it.
You had to really put one in to break a Tuff Strut.
