Well I've got mine - and built it - how easy are those shocks to build - only trouble I've got is haven't had a chance to run it yet.

Here's my setup from practicing at a tight high grip carpet track with rubber tires, try it out. The car was flyin'. Far better than my mi2 ever felt and I still think the mi2 was a good car. Very easy to stay consistent trough an entire run.

Download the setup here!

Any of you coming to DHI-cup this weekend?

I'm not sure what you're talking about lacking an O-ring because mine has one. Do you mean not having one inside the body? It's true they dont have one there. I'm pretty sure anything on these shocks is not an accident, mine are awesome. Something to be ware on them though is the pistons might start to move up and down between the e-clips slightly making the shocks feel like they "stick" at the top of the stroke slightly. All that is needed is to take the cap and bladder off, pop off the upper e-clip and put a really thin motor shim above the piston and it gets rid of the play. Only 3 of my 4 shocks did it, and not right away. Just keep in mind that might happen so you guys should look out for it.
