Just as an FYI, my shock oil is 525cst, not the same as 52.5wt. 525cst would probably equate to about 45-47.5wt. Also always note that I am not good at downsiding jumps so I set my car up to be able to flat land occasionally! ;-)
Yeah right LUTZ! you are a God at the wheel! amazing to watch you drive!

Been running a CRC shorty for a while now. Its a direct fit if you run the leads to the back. I put some weight on both sides to keep the pack in the middle. It stays well on its own,may not be needed. But the rear is pretty light anyway. I do run the brass on the sides and rear skidplate. I like how the one pack cleans up the whole area though. That may be the biggest thing.

take a body reamer to the end where the turnbuckle threads in and ream the hole a little bigger then the fattest part of the turnbuckle before the adjustment knob so that theres no friction.

So reaming the threaded part of the ball cup is going to stop it from popping off the ball stud? Thanks.....

I do believe it helps to make sure the turnbuckle can be adjusted freely BUT think you want to polish the ball stud a little with a dremel.

The thing is to move past the typical break-in period when it comes to the ball cups & such on this car.

it helps remove the stiffness found in the turnbuckles and allows them to move freely so they dont tend to lock up and force themselves off the ballstuds.you want them to be a tight but loose fit over the ballstud other wise if they are to tight they will continuously pop off because theres no room for play. polishing the ballstuds will also help alot. i used a dab of grease on the top of my ball studs before i put the ends on and havent had any issues.the day after i built the car i had the cups popping off while adjusting and did the reamer trick and the grease and havent had one pop off yet.

no issue's at all with the V3 unless you really mess up and give the pipe a big hit

compaired to the older 410 version they are much better

how did you get the CRC shorty to fit for me it was about a 1 or 2mm to long and i could not get the battery clip in, did you modify anything?

It would only fit with the leads at the back, its snug but goes in and out fine. Kinda have to angle in too, it seems weired at first but once you got it, its easy.
