Nitro, thanks for the tip but I busted it so bad it is not going to be easy to figure out how it can go back together. Maybe I'll reinforce the new one when I get it. Or maybe watch out for those light posts

Really impressed with the build so far. Love that the first things done were shocks, diffs, and tie rods. They will just drop in place when I get to them. Not bad HB........

Gotta say this Type R body fits really well! Also I think the car drives a little better with it on as well. Durability has been great although I did swap out the included PL wing with the Trifecta. The Trifecta is pretty durable, my exotek wing mounts ripped the PL wing on the first tumble.

So I bought me some AE composite shock caps and found the reason the aluminum caps won't work is that the thread size is different but just close enough so you can force the composite caps on to the body, still better than the stockers that do not fit correctly on the body, warp around the base and leak at least on my car.

Curious what you cut down, cut mine fit just fine.
I know there are lines for trimming the back down like the clear wings have, is that what you did.
