Got a confession to make..haven't built or rebuilt a set of shocks since the beginning of December
Still on the first set of spool outdrives. And still no sign of wear. Raced 2/3 times per week
Can change spur or remove diff without undoing top deck and having to de-tweak the car
Change spring tension and shock setting in a minute
Car is super light with multiple battery positions and electronics layouts, the biggest tuning aid of all IMO
Only once tweaked in a crash in 3 months
I often don't even bother to check, check droop, camber etc it hold the settings so well. Just rear toe needs regular checking.
It has taken some time to get to know this car, and find a basic set up that works for me, I did not find this so easy. But it feels like my car now. So if you're not a die hard addict who who simply has to try every adjustment its probably not for you.
When it arrived I thought 'Wow this is clever' but its even better thought out than I had first realised. My maintenance routine is now almost zero. A bit of oil here and there. Just check it over and change a few bearings every couple of weeks. Struggling to imagine a situation where I'd want to go back. Go back to constantly fiddling with shocks, in particular.
Turn up and race, make an adjustment, try a different line, power profile, goop routine, race...
Having more fun than ever before
