replaced it with a flanged one, it still plays =/ not as much, but its enough to make me nervous

the nut ends up going inside the shock cap, right? cause one way, the nut sits on the outside, the other way, its inside

Yes, inside the shock cap. My caps have a bit of play in them. I had the grind off the outside of my wrench to fit it inside the cap. They have 2-3mm of play, and I didn't have any problems at the track. The hole should be bigger in the cap IMO...

Default Suspension upgrade installed. Pics.



You have to modify the caster blocks... easy to do with Dremel.





upgrade adds more droop..
