On the Wing thing, Standard downforce VS HD, ive found on out my old 1/8th scale that the standard took away all my rear bump handling problems in the blown out high speed sections the HD wing would cause. It pulls alot of weight on the rear that every company is trying to put on the front with all these new generation cars. And the Standard wings let you have so much more steering.

Food for thought Try it some time, it will surprise you. I know it did me..

The shock bladder is also the flattest I have ever seen on any shock.

The shock pistons are actually machined from one solid piece of plastic then cut piece by piece off of to get your single pistons, sort of like CNC aluminum parts. They are not pulled from a parts tree or anything therefore have no burrs at all and completely smooth.

all of those can be found on other cars....except that instead of a square rod end, theres only a small protrusion to stop the spring retainer from spinning.

Oh. I have never noticed them. Oh well I tried lol!

I also just noticed you are J. Quagraine right? Cool! Been reading alot about you lately. NEED TO SHOW A PIC OF YOUR CAR, keeping everyone in suspense Saw you have been driving the Ishima buggy. That is about 90% the same as the ZX1-R. Nice to show people it is very competitive. You should try out a Caster 1.5R. Alot more upgrades on it including durability, quality and handling.

Everyone want BB's now and with Caster's pricing if they are good they will be a hot item. Okay, you can yell at me now for bitching.
dont you have a bearing to go seize lol jk

the shocks are very smooth i think they are smoother then the jammin shocks i was running on my rc8

im not a fan of the captured pin cvd's the rc8 had that. its great you dont lose a pin but then your working with a smaller bearing which has its positives and negatives

Right, no pics sorry!

How is the quality of the new Caster? I saw it in China, looks like it does share alot with the Ishima.
