cause I used to race a raw chassis. You see, my track is downhill both ways, and all those fancy electronics just add weight.

I have a LCG I'm looking to trade for a FK05 or preferably a RDX. The car was only ran on carpet for a few packs and is in excellent condition. Included are a fare amount of spares and hop ups. It also comes with everything to convert it to a cmg or sd ssg. If any one is interested please PM or Email me. I have pics. Later, Rob

It uses the same spares at the SD and BD. But for the larger parts like chassis plates, shocktowers, motormounts, ect. check for about a dozen post about that on this page, or the one before it on this thread.

Default LCG for MOD?

Is anyone running their LCG in MOD? It works greatin stock and 19, but I can't run my BD or my age is getting to me that I can;t run mod?

I'm asking because just in case I need to run mod?

Thanks!

I've run it before. The torque steer was noticable, but I had the same droop on both side b/c I had a 19t setup on the car. I'd say it will work fine in mod, maybe even better than most cars because of the chassis flex to get more grip.

Looks normal or look slike the standard in the BD/SDW. Maybe Because the new ones that came with the kits are Shorter and that they are offering it as a set to get the proper ride height??????

Lem

I guess the SSS stands for Super Short Shocks or Short SHock Set???

Difference is that it comes with bladder caps. Old ones came with pressure caps.

What's the difference in pressure and bladder? Also, I hope they would come with bleeder valves, like HPI shocks
