Interesting read.

I have never personally had a shock shaft pull away from the piston nor seen any of my bros cars do it.

Interested in seeing what you find out.

I think so. I have made it through a few tanks of practice and 3 rounds of 7min quals. Now on to a 45min main. Fingers crossed they stay.

I drilled out the centers and sanded the sides against the body. Seems to be working
