I replaced mine with avid, but only after I heard some had failures..apparently they changed the size mid stream in some kits if I remember correctly. 12 minutes is amazing CHIZZLE, it took me longer than that to decide if I really wanted to do it or not..lol

if you dremel/cut out the side pods, changing Anti-squat should be alot easier. Have not done it myself yet. Also easier to make up shims and use 0/3.

It needs a shim system like the B4. Use the 0 degree and then use slotted shims that you slide underneath. Simple.

There are a few things that could be changed..On a positive note though, the front end is a dream to wrench on, I have never owned a car that removing or changing out a servo was so easy..Kudos on that design..I hope every other manufacturer copies that..

Lol, yeah a power screwdriver is the key. I replaced mine the first time with an Avid but it still happened after two packs. I think I'm getting some binding when I snug down the 3 screws that hold the motor plate which is putting too much pressure on that little bearing. I might try shaving a bit off the layshaft spacer and see if it frees it up a bit.

Guys, what is the best looking carbon rear shock tower? Broke the stock rear tower today, and ready to upgrade.

Oh, and I keep pulling out the ballstuds on the rear hubs while running the car. Im using longer ballstuds now and use a locknut on the back of the hub.
Anybody ele having this?

I love my 210. I think the rear can be simplified a bit. The transmission is very nice. It's the the rear brace that is overly complicated. I am very pleased with mine.

What springs are you running? Shorty pack or full size? Position of the battery? Mid motor? Rear motor? Although I have no idea if you're building your shocks correctly, internally, the springs are the only thing holding your car up. Where the preload collars are placed determines your ride height. Pistons and oil have nothing to do with preload collars.

Thats going to be a hard question to answer from this side of the screen. Really need to see it and feel the shocks to be able to diagnose it. I have seen the piston screws back out, too thick of oil, wrongs pistons etc..Disassembling it will be the only way..
