It could be possible that it's not taped in the picture.

Its new washers that go on top of the steering rack that stop the rack from going beyond full lock.

Just picked up and built the car. New to on-road so I know things will happen, but these ball cups are pretty weak. Lightly touched a pipe at TQ yesterday a couple of times, and each time the turnbuckles shoved all the way in on the ball cup. Is there another manufacturers ball ends I can use in the meantime while I am trying to get this thing tuned, and setup?

Crazy to hear! Any tc I've ever owned I've converted to the yoke ball cups (if ball stud size allowed). They're typically very strong and from what I've seen take the most abuse and stay tightest longest. Hopefully you just got an "off" batch.

I am thinking about adding the smj short shock towers to my 2015:

Is this a good option to improve the car. If so which shocks are considered the best? Yokomo slf 2016 or the X-ray t4 shocks?

Hopefully here as well. Switched them all out to new ones from a new package. We will see what happens.

Looking for a neutral setup for the car on medium to low grip asphalt. Have a practice session tomorrow and first race this weekend. I'm pretty much on the kit setup for carpet (TQ Racing) right now, and it was too twitchy. Need to dial out a bunch of steering (in addition to taking most of it out with the D/R setting on my radio). Any help would be great.

RSD also has these. PM Cristian Tabush on here for more info. He hasn't listed them yet. The 2016 Yokomo SLF II shocks are way better than the 15s and cheaper than the xray ones.

I don't think rds has distributor in Europe, SMJ is easy to find.
X-ray shocks are 2 euro cheaper than yokomo in Europe, so price is not the big difference. Just looking for some advice if it improves the car, stupid money if it doesn't

I have a 2015 with SLFII and SMJ towers. I would never go back to normal SLF I shocks standard or shorts. Although I haven't tested it outdoors yet (I will in a couple of weeks) i'm pleased with the indoor results.

Tried a 1way diff this weekend on the CRC black carpet, Man it was blast to drive but I learned that you have to stay on the throttle. This week I'll widen the F/R width to 188mm and increase the rear toe to 3 or 3.5 so I can drive it harder

xray shocks dont fit,the shock body is too long leaving only 4mm of travel,the slf11 are equal to the xray shocks just a little shorter

I have them on my 16 with no issues, have back to backed them a few times with the SLF2, have always gone quicker and easier to drive with the X-ray shocks, progressive inserts and Yokomo pink springs.
