I ordered from eBay (see link below), but I cannot remember the length (I think maybe it was 81mm). You will probably need to measure your shocks and choose the correct length before you order.

I didn't use the new springs that come with the shocks as they were too stiff. I re-used the old stock springs.

The largest lipo I could squeeze into the small battery compartment is a 2200mah 2S. To do that, you will need to cut away all the plastic pieces in the battery compartment to make more room.

That battery is perfect.
As for the shocks, I attached a screenshot. Maybe you can search manually for the item.

Thanks! I currently do not have a video of the car in action. Next time I will bring the car to the local track and run it against other 1/10 buggies and take a video.

The L959 has limited tuning capabilities as compared to a real 1/10 buggy. If really need to race, then I think it would be a challenge to beat the real buggies.

As for the plastic spur gear, there is no metal replacement. The best I could do so far is to re-inforce the spur gear shaft and the shaft holder inside the gear box to make sure that the spur gear meshing to the pinion remains good and constant. I used some washers to put around the spur gear shaft holders in the gearbox to prevent them from splitting/cracking. Hopefully this will help the spur gear to last longer.
