It should be 2.7 but he asked for 2.8 and that is what it calculates to.

But post of 2013 needs also remove that screw on lower deck to remove it completely, because i just want without that post of motor mount in my car to run bigger pinion gear.

Best regards

Yes, but it's Trigonometry (Sines, Cosines, Tangents and that stuff).

Hello, does anyone remember what the difference was between the SLF shock and the SLF II? Are there changes in length or volume? What was the design change?

Can confirm for sure the SLF II's are a shorter shock 50mm off the top of my head. Believe they have more volume (for a small shock) in the shock body to make up for the distance change. Team drivers use to switch towers and longer shocks for asphalt at times from memory.

Buy the black bladders, the pink ones are terrible and don't seat well at all... Drilling a small hole on the top cap for 0 rebound is a great tuning option as well. Love running mine dead, indoor or out it seems sucked to the floor.

Would like to know this aswell


Skimming through the BD8 thread, the Bulk head braces are different on the 40 tooth set up. So if you run them front and rear currently that's going to be another $50-60 for them.

Raising the bulkhead for clearance is also key.. still trying to figure out all these new combos..

pitch system, pitch system minus rod, RTC (mixing and matching between parts in kit and parts needed to buy) , new bulk head spacers / 40t diff gears So much to try and do on a yok these days :P

So am I right in saying the the lower shock mounts work with SLF ll shocks on the bd7 15. What shock towers tho as the are some for the 14 and 16. Can't find the 15.

Cheers
