I forgot to mention, i removed the kit's side shock, and put the damper tube from the F104X1.

i had black grease, and i tried 3000wt, didn't seem to change much.

How does that shock's changes affect the car?

Going thicker will slow transition and soften steering in fast sweepers but if u go too thick it will make your rear tire lift even worse! I would try 10,000 wgt and see if it helps. I usually run between 10,000 and 30,000 wgt.
Also, I'm not too familiar with Exotek front end but are you running any droop spacers on the Exotek front end?
Also, try a little preload on side springs and see if that helps inside tire lift.

Huh???
ESC at the rear and pivot the reciever plate and the shorty should slide in fine.
If you use the top deck posts on the same places then it won't.
Mount them as manual and it should be fine.
