You may also want to order the steering bellcrank in case you don't run a servo saver.

Hot Bodies Steering Crank Set D413 112764 part number
I do intend to run a servo saver, is there a reason not to?

Thanks again!

When my Vorza was all original that is what broke in its first ever race and sent me home. It was after some serious bashing, which I don't do anymore. It was on the rear so I got the longer rear shocks to fix it.

Ran close to 8 packs today and the car was really durable. I stripped the spur gear and cracked the front shock tower after cart wheeling on a new part of the track. My local track stocked the spare and I was shocked. He also had the ball cup set since I was missing one for the sway bar. I was also running tlr 22 front wheels.

Temps with the 19t pinion and the lrp flow esc were great after putting the esc fan on. Esc was around 100 and the motor hit 155 once or twice.

The shock top popped off the ball twice but I popped it back on

Just got a email back from proline about the Shock cups and they are saying they unfortunately do not have the Proline Shock caps in the plans to be released. I emailed back asking if maybe they misunderstood my email lol.

I am currently using kyosho springs and as mentioned before you sometimes need to thread the shock collars quite a bit down in order to get the correct ride height. Has anyone here used longer springs like those for SC or trucks? I guess not needed but curious in case I ever want more ride height (currently 22mm) and run out of thread.

we're gonna try to get these to market as soon as we can. but please understand it takes a little while to go through all the processes.

part number will be #114112 but don't try to order it yet as i just barely generated that number. nobody knows of its existence yet. it'll include aluminum caps, bleeder screws, aluminum tower mounts, bushings, bladders (same as stock), mounting screws and washers, enough to do two shocks. price TBD.

Looks nice. I am sure they will sell like hotcakes, even if the stock ones are fine. People just love their aluminum shock caps.

Any chance you can also include some nicely cut bladders or O-rings so emulsion is a super easy and clean option?

torrence, how about an oring for an emulsion build (so we don't have to cut bladders). would be a nice option.
