Low Shore Oily Silicone diaphram and o-ring
High PTFE shock bushing and spacer
One piece alloy top cap
Knurled alloy lower cap
Alloy threaded spring collar

A few posts ago I said you might see Schumacher shocks on other cars next season. I wasn't kidding...they are that good!

Adrian will the pistons be the more conventional type or adjustable?

They are conventional. The kit will have 3 hole pistons and there will be optional 2 holes. Adjustable pistons all have some degree of flow by between the piston parts that causes inconsistent damping. The fixed pistons eliminate an uncontrollable variable.

I currently use the indi booster 2 but I think that I'm going to switch to their stackable tray. I forget the specs on it but I saw PW with it at the Reedy race. I've heard so many different opinions on battery management and not taking your batteries down to 0.0 (which I think the indi booster2 does) but they claim no cell reversal and I have never been down on runtime or power. I baby my batteries because I'm not a factory guy that can just ask for more alll the time. I run them once a week then put them away. People have said that the packs are better on their second run but I guess I'll never know.....LOL This is what has worked for me over the years. If you have any other questions feel free to ask away.

I am glad since I switched to regular pistons on my car it "feels" like I expect it to when making damping changes. Has the new Carpet car been tested on rubber tires? I see the Novak race has that class and wondered that when I go to a carpet race if it was on rubber what car is going to be best, asphalt or carpet spec? Sooner or later someone will ask we need the best answer.

Is this true....I don't know but after viewing a few pages on the RDX thread I don't see any posts from our local driver's. Hmmmmmm E.C. should be Excercise Caution......disclaimer should read (not responsible for TQ's & over all wins) Man I can't wait to get my hands on the new ride....LOL

Rod, don't know if they've tried the "US Spec" car with rubbers, but if you look at pics from the big carpet/rubber races in Europe, Teemu uses a car that is more like the normal EC - at least i know he used to!! The pics from the GP race last weekend certainly don't have the full top deck.

A burning smell is the first symptom of a brain tumor. You might want to get that checked out, I'm worried about ya.
