As stated above, I believe they are breaking the front shock tower MOUNT. I have broken two so far. Same way on the same place on track, head on into brick wall. I am not the only one at that spot.

So the moral of the story is the mount is plenty strong and durable for normal crashes...a wall is stronger.

Yes, the only real problem is that part is no where to be found yet. Simple fix with inexpensive part if I could just get one.

Totally serious. They may have priority fill or something. When I preordered it, the eta was early March. Either someone dropped out of line or they got more kits in then they thought.

Mine have never popped off and they don't leak. How will they make them better? I will get the auminum caps and standoffs when they come out though, just for peace of mind.

I think the shocks popping off at the top has been a known issue with this car since very early.

Maybe Avid will make some nice standoffs like they have for the B5. The owner is a member at our local track, I will ask him. I will also ask the owner of RCSHOX since he is a member at our track too.. One of them is bound to want in on that market.

A buddy let me drive his D413 back when i was still considering my options. and i broke front shock tower support and bend front shock shaft.

now that I've been running my own for a few weeks i have only broken one front CF shock tower and somehow bent a rear drive shaft.

i have only been in the hobby for a few months so breaking stuff is gonna happen.
