I see he is using FR and RR split blocks, whats the reasoning behind that?
Also looks like TRF mini shocks on his table...

I think the quote is, 'to finish first, first you have to finish!'. Way to keep it on all fours and rolling.

Maybe you can find them somewhere else by googling...

They are included in the V5 kit.

0.3mm shims are included with the V5 but the TDX shims have a larger outer diameter. I think the kit ones will be fine since the TDX don't seem to be available

Best for never leaking or weeping The Clear kit O-Rings but they do create a lot of friction on the shock shaft.

Best for performance and smoothness are the 50 Durometer X-Rings but can weep oil and sometimes you need to add shims to squeeze them up tighter in the shock cartridge to stop the weep...

so i'm running mostly the jilles snowbird setup, on carpet in mod/open on sorex 28r or 24r's. the car is awesome except i've developed a bit of snap oversteer at the end of some corners (on power throughout the corner)

it'll hold, hold, hold, and then snap out. no speed, minimal steering changes threwout the turn

ideas what to look for/change?

someone had suggested ackerman, but that is the main tuning point i know nothing about, havent touched and dont even know how its set lol

Try a harder geardiff oil in the rear! I don't know what you are using now but something like 2K or 3K will be more stable on power out of the corner!
