Anybody knew the difference if using full pressure or half pressure, or 7mm( whatever) pressure when rebuild the shocks? Thanks!

yeah i felt stupid when i realized that haha.

As far as ver.2 better for lightweight...i cant afford to be replacing the spool and CVDs because of the high amount of wear due to weak aluminum of the ver.2 spool. I had it, didnt like it.

Although it seems you have to spend a lot of money on cells if you are a top driver (NOT MY PROBLEM!!!! :P )
two lipo's and you're set for the year. 5cell may be slightly better on wear and tear of the car but I've also seen guys dump after running their batteries pretty hard. The same guys can run a well used 6 cell battery and make runtime using the same motor they dumped in 5 cell with. I guess it really comes down to personal preference but I'm really happy with my lipo's.

Yeah 5 cell hammers the batteries pretty hard. Although one other advantage is that the throttle power isnt so abrupt which is good for me
I just need someone to develop a 1 and 2/3 cell lipo for me :P
