They make 3 total shock sets, you probably have the wrong front set. The web site calls for 6267-01 buggy rears on front with 5mm of limiters, and 6308-01 shortcourse truck rears for the rear with :
'
"Use 2mm spacers on the top of the shocks to get the correct shock angle".

They were mispackaged. Took them back and got another package. So far loving them compared to the original hb units.

Seems like it would be easier to use some old shock O-rings instead

A very nice kit indeed, had a couple of hick ups along the way, but nothing serious. Here's how it ended up looking. Planning on posting a complete build blog later this month.


Wow that looks sick, is that a custom orange color or something from a can?

Based on the lack of finish work of the carbon fiber I would say its probably a standard color. It looks to be Spaz Stix Candy Orange

Hi,
The Exotek D413 hexes are made to be flush fit... does the hex set you have has 'D413' laser etched into them?

Thanks for the response. No they don't have D413 on them. I ordered them directly from you guys though. My order number was #25910, if that helps.
