I'm running the 7075 King Heads shoes right now with the stock springing and it works great. Shoes are showing very little wear at all, glad I bought two sets. Now if I can only locate a new 13tooth bell. Everyplace is on backorder...

Default Shock oil and pistons

What shock oil and pistons are most of you running? I ran the stock for awhile, but it did not do it for me...I just changed to 40 wt front with 54 pistons and 32.5 wt rear with stock 55 pistons...first thing I noticed is the front stiffened up a bit and the rear is quite a bit softer (of course it would be) and I had to crank down the preload collars more to get my ride height correct...I have not had a chance to run it on a track yet (Saturday I will try it out) - I think I got this setup from one of the Drake's setup sheets...just curious what everyone else out there is running..

By the way, I am running on a mix of short, technical tracks with small jumps, but am also going to be running on a large, fast and technical track with several whoops, table tops, and double jumps....

That is the shock setup I've been running since I got my car. Works good!

Nice Engine! I have the Mamba in my 8ight. What pipe is that your are using? Also, I noticed that you have a metal brace on the rear and the stock plastic on the front. How does it handle with this setup.

Default Hey guys

Hey guys I have a question. Ok my question is what does the word Loamy mean. I hear people saying this word when describing a track and how the track surface is. Thanks guys.
