to adjust droop, do I do that via the preload on the rear shock collar?

I'm uncertain as to exactly what type of change would be required.

Screw in the shock shaft ball end(if there's enough thread to screw in more), or with plastic shims on the shock shaft inside the shock body.

Btw, did you add the 4mm worth of shims inside the shock and set to 60mm shock length as per Exotek instructions?

To reduce droop you need to shorten the center shock by screwing in the ballcup or adding spacers/orings inside the shock under the the piston.

Is the 103 15th anniversary car the same handling as other 103s?

That kit has most of the hopups on it. The carbon chassis is stiffer than the FRP one found in kits.

With that being said, if I were to buy a car based on the 103 wheelbase and tire size I would get the TRG car. Outstanding design.

The F104 upper arms that I put on my F109 are really tight on the pivot balls and was wondering what you guys were doing with the F104 about that. I have several runs on the car and still the front suspension is too tight.
