Kit does not come with tires, diff fluid, or shock oil.

To the guy with the chattering, this happens my car after a few races, take the shafts out and put them at max angle and turn them and you can turn them all the around there fine if not maybe change the drive pins and/or i get bearing oil and fill the axel cup were the pin joins it to the shaft and then i let it dry out on paper towel and leave it over night, most of the oil will run out, they then turn free at max angle the next morning, the oil should have run out through the holes and left like a coating and it should leave them free'er

Hey guys, I made these shock protectors to prevent my shocks from taking as hard of a hit and to prevent the screws from digging into the dirt if it flips over. After racing yesterday they took a couple good hits and are perfectly fine.

I want to get them out there so I can test there durability better, so if anybody wants to try out a pair let me know.

I think they should fit over the shock tower a bit more, and also cover the shock nuts. Which I think means they might have to mount from the back or some other way….The shock nuts tend to dig in when the car flips over so it would be nice to have a smoother surface to skid along in the unfortunately and "rare" event of a flip

I've recently been experimenting with the MIP Bypass1 Piston set. it's a really interesting concept but so far I am having trouble achieving similar pack to my 35 wt with 1.6mmx2 pistons. I am up to 40wt now and it still doesn't pack the same way based on my drop test on the bench. I use this as a basic test before I go out to the track. I will soon have several sets of shocks so I will be able to build two sets and switch easily. (right now my 210 is serving that purpose…) Anyone else used them? I'm going to try them in reverse with the washers on the bottom so I can use their thickness and the number to adjust pack. Standard config with washers on top you adjust rebound speed by stacking washers or using thicker versions. Same concept in reverse but you are adjusting for pack…..

I'll post my results soon. I'll post my full setup with regular pistons and with bypass pistons. I'll probably try some of the tapered pistons soon as well…

So far I think I like 4 hole 1.2mm best as an all around starting point. With 30 wt. (which corresponds with Bmans magic number of 4.5-4.7mm^2). I've confirmed this as well as I've tried some other combo's close to this overall piston hole area.

Yea, I have two different sets so far, these, a set that mount is the rear of the tower going over the shock, and i started making a set that runs all the way across mounting on back to cover more.

I'm hesitant with the ones mounted in back because i think they will brake off a lot easier, but one way to find out i guess

I say you go the Schumacher rough all the way and screw all else. Those work exquisitely well and aide a tad in aero.

haha i'll see, the hard part is my printer doesn't have any fill material and you can't print plastic over air and get the desired shape out of it. I can print wall ect up to around 45-60 degree angles so i'll see what I can do.

Can you print it upside down, then just grind the supports off the bottom(top) of the part after it's finished?

I'd have to print them with the large flat side(where it mounts to the tower) down and I couldn't be able to go past that angle. I might try to be creative with supports that maybe I can brake off easily
