On a side note..It's the internet so most of us don't know each other. Because of that people posting their results/opinions of the new car carry little weight. We all have different skill levels and abilities to notice changes...This is just another one of those opinion posts BUT..I just got off the phone with a friend of mine who's at the the track testing his new 2.0. Long story short, the new car IS all that and a bag of chips compared to the original! So for me, all the people posting about how good it is, aren't just full of internet crap.

To add to my previous post. He put his K springs from his 1.0 on the 2.0 so he could baseline compare the chassis and suspension geometry between the two.

He's going to test the kit LF springs and let me know the results on that as well..

you have been trying to sell the exotek system post after post in almost every 22-platform vehicle thread I have followed.

NOW, for you to go and criticize two guys, one of whom builds aluminum racks and housings (and to my understanding, on the side), AND then a guy who is happy and supportive of his product is pure BS.
+1 Agreed

Unless you have obvious issues with the stock 2.0 rack I would only look at the Exotec as an option/tuning part.

I can only assume TLR is working on bringing out their own bell crank system, when they do they will give us their reason for doing so.

Do you happen to know what the stock diff oil weight is in the gear diff? I am guessing 1 or 2k but can't seem to find the answer online.

Their reason...
Just a hunch; "Faster & more consistent lap times." Based on the cars and upgrades released from every manufacturer over the years.

Just sayin'
