If you want to spend money on that kind of stuff, get the aluminum rear hubs (first choice) then aluminum steering knuckles (second choice)

But I am pretty sure, (if you are just going for bling bling) that Xray makes aluminum shocks as an option part.

That's not correct. The ALU shocks are discontinued.

At this moment I use the ALU Serpent shocks and thay are awesome in maintenance, filling & bleeding and have a very constant rebound.

But the standard Xray shocks are fine
thanks for the inputs guys. i guess i'll stick with the plastic shock bodies and just stock up on spares.

The gold/copper color springs come stock with the EU version, I don't know if you can buy them as a spare/option part

The only spares you should need would be the internals. It would be really hard to break the shock bodies, they are made of composite nylon and are super strong.

This is the first time I see anti-dive on team setups and Paul's setup shows the same... Is it something the guys came up with because of the extreme traction or it is a newly found tool would help in lower grip circumstances too?

Now the other questions: how on earth we gonna find a second set of copper spring??? What is the closest available to the copper?

Anti-dive was used a lot with the FK05. If you look at the last year IIC setup, Lemieux and Baker were using anti-dive. It help me get the rear hooked off throttle.

Thanks, the Fk05 is a different animal I was talking about the 007 particularly. Checked the vegas setup you mentioned and yes Barry did use anti-dive and so did Paul but none of the rest of the guys setups show anti-dive...

I compared the setups of Paul and Barry and among all the small differneces there is the shimming of the front arms which got my attention... Paul used an inboard toe-in Barry used inboard toe-out... does it have a big influence on the handling? Probalbly not if both works...

I have seen two shock bodies break since 04. But it can happen if you are hit by another car just right.

Internals? Nothing should wear out, except the bladders can get messed up if you don't get them on right when you screw down the top. It can get pinched and torn. I have seen that happen.

Yeah your right they should not wearout unless not put together correctly, or you do what I did and put the wrong e-clip on the top and gouge the top of the plastic internals getting the e-clip off, OOps, I hate e-clips.

VoodooPH how did you break the shock body
