  1. I own a set of Eagle V2 damper and a friend of mine has the Eagle HMS.  I’m sorry to say that so far we haven’t had much luck with ours. Leaking isn’t the issue with these, it’s that fact that they aren’t smooth. Both get the “frozen” shaft effect when running our cars. Basically the damper sticks for a bit until we check the dampers again. I’m pretty sure I setup the shocks correct as I did them the same way as my TRF dampers. My TRF dampers perform 100% even after 2 months worth of weekend drift sessions.
    I understand their’s a quality and price difference. But, this really should be considered as priority upgrade as this can throw off your car’s performance big time.  For someone that is new to the hobby or doesn’t really understand suspension tuning should really invest in top notch dampers. Because if this ever happens to you, you may not second guess poor performing dampers and change other suspension settings that were just perfect to begin with. 

    1.  fair enough, very good analysis.  Personally we have never tried Eagle brand dampers so we would have no idea.  From what you are saying it reminds me of Yeah Racing dampers I once used… although it leaked pretty badly…
      Thanks for sharing with everyone, Im sure someone will find it helpful.  Thanks William 🙂

      1. =) by all means that was not intended to turn away anyone from Eagle Racing parts in general. I own a EA TA05 GRT dressed up in EA gear and the quality of those part are up to my standard.  I just wish Eagle would do a bit better on their dampers.

        1. Yeah there are a number of very good parts from Eagle Racing, there are also a number of parts we consider weak in design (for example the steering knuckles with that hole through the arm).  Personally I prefer to get genuine TRF dampers, even tho they cost more, they are very much worth the price you pay for them.  If Eagle increased the quality of their dampers, then their price may also increase proportionally? hehe 

    1. Dampers are quite universal, the only thing you have to look out for is the length.  Check out the specs of the R31 stock dampers and compare to your stock TB03 ones
