I ran my new moorespeed indoor last night. I was running CS22's 40wt front oil 35wt rear oil, stock setup, kit springs and all i did was play with rear droop and roll bars. Car was very very good. There is room for a bit of improvement though.

You can use spacers on the shaft inside the shock body to shorten the length, if you want to go down the route.

I cant remember off the top of my head the length, but a good starting point is just to screw the bottom eylet up to the top of the thread then measure the length and make sure all 4 shocks are the same.
