Since we're talking acronyms, WTF does PTFE stand for on the stock shock bodies?

DO the Mos shocks from Tresrey include everything to build the shock? I kinda had one go boom and lost some of the internals and the shock seal cap at the bottom

Reduced friction inside the shocks. And the pistons it comes with a machined for exacting fitment. We don't have the Mos big bores (yet) but have them on Cush's DEX410 and they are very nice. Makes the Durango shocks (already one the best) even smoother.

Default Gear diff

Hi

What oil to run into this?
I run on carpet, with Mid engine layout with 3-gears.
Has had some problems with the ball diff.
The clip pops out, then switches to the gear diff now it has come to the EU.

DO the Mos shocks come with everything to build the shock? or does it require parts from the Durango shock?

Unless they changed it from the regular bore shocks, you need the top and bottom caps, orings, eyelet, and lower spring cup. Its bodies, shafts, e clips, and pistons.

Just got my Lunsford goodies from AMain.

Turnbuckles went together nicely. First adjustments on the car and they don't pop off like the stock ones do.

Got the hinge pins as well. A little tighter than the stock pins, but I think they will work themselves out and free up a bit.

Received my AKA Vector front/rear tires on new TD wheels. Definitely a nice looking tire. Going to be doing some track testing tomorrow and racing Saturday.

Of all the guys I know that have and drive the 210, I only know one that broke his and he had aftermarket ball cups.

I could imagine that the colder climate you race in may contribute to the plastic becoming brittle in the cold maybe?
I've popped cups, no break. Other times it just cracks. All is good though, I CNC'D one today. Mint! BTW, 72* isnt cold.....
