If you don't mind me asking...where did you order your kit from? I've had one on backorder for a month

AMain

There is 5 kits left in stock. Also 1 Aluminum Chassis upgrade left in stock.

You can use coupon code to get $40 off a $400 order or more: FEB40


I just tested the stock by putting in 10 quantity of each and they show how many would go to back order.

I'm pretty happy with this for club racing traction levels. It will need more work for bigger events to keep it from traction rolling, I'm still playing with front camber and sauce width right now. Try it and let me know what you think.

I don't thing I have seen anyone use them, bladders are almost always preferred, especially the black bladders. Drilling the cap is also sometimes done, especially with the new short shocks.

Upgraded one of my 15 with SLF II, used SMJ shock towers and Axon springs.

I use them all the time on my cars. We race on temporary set-up tracks in my area, on the grey CRC carpet. Means lots of tape and not always a smooth surface. I find the aeration shocks are a little more settled when driving on this type of surface.

Hi, where did you get the SMJ stuff from? I like the look the lowered towers and the LTCR bumper, but not many places (if any) in Europe stock these yet. Thanks.

RSD/Reflex Racing can cut you some too. I think he may already have some since his son has a 2015.

I'll let Cristian chime in on the towers. Some of you may need something made he's your man. Bad thing about the SMJ is that you have to flip your rear body post, it will rub the upper link.
