Jason, besides the new chassis having the new holes for the flex plates, is the front end moved back?

We have shifted the weight placement within the wheelbase but we have maintained the same wheelbase.

That shock looks sweet! What are the advantages/differences compared to the IRS one? And what is going to be the price for it?

It doesn't get hung up when it is sitting at rest, and it is so consistent and easy to build. You don't have to bleed them.

The IRS shock works very well. The silva shock is a little more adjustable as you can use different pistons. The silva is very easy to build also. Both shocks work excellent.

The silva shock is $21.99. I will have it on the website today.

Looks like it's exactly what I've been missing with the IRS shock! I'll be adding a few of them to my next order for me and some of my friends.

The Silva looks like their answer to the HB shock Cool now I won't need to switch my ball studs to metric. How much thicker is the shaft diameter?

I just want to let everyone know that the rear pod brace is not on the car in the pics because they are out for anodize right now. We did not stop using it.

The shock is really nice. Super smooth and really easy to build. It comes with a 2 hole piston and i will be messing around making some others for it.

So how's that frontend working for you gadgt?
