Great packs for little $!
Was leaning toward SMC but don't know when the 100c pack will be available. Would the 60c pack be alright for stock.

Oh yeah. That would be good. I jumped on the pre-order and will report my results once I get it in. If they're as good as the others, its a steal for that price!

I have a question about the Fox Kashima coated shocks. I have a Factory Lite and was wondering if the Fox shocks are worth upgrading to for performance, (they look great), or would I even notice much of a difference from my Lite shocks?
the shock bodies I would say no. The new V2 shock shafts and pistons yes though. The chrome ones feel smoother than gold but both are nice. I have used the new bodies and shafts.

Like BRS said, you will notice a greater difference with the newer shock shafts, in chrome. That and the x-rings are great upgrades.

The pins are not solid titanium, only a titanium nitride coating. Titanium hinge pins are just as soft as standard hingepins. Best bet is not to hit things.

Time for the trash with those numbers. Anytime A cell went over 1.0 it's ready to be tossed.

I still have three sets of titanium hinge pins for the b5m here. Not sure what I'll do with them, but they shed a bunch of weight.
