Here's the directions. That black plastic piece doesn't even fit in the cartridge, only thing that looks like it does is the white part i have on the shock shaft now. And the 1mm spacer i'm using is the white teflon part and it doesn't have a flat spot as shown in the instructions. There is no 1mm part with a flat spot as they show.

Rayspeed red in front and white in the rear seem to work well.
50wt oil all around.

The black plastic piece won't be an easy fit, it is made oversized to stay in there.

I'm sure the part that fits in the hole in the end of the shock is white, it's a perfect fit, it's white teflon so it's low friciton and lets the shock shaft slide easily there is logic to the design of the car
The photo of above is correct, the manuals diagram is a little off in some bits.

Yah that's what i'm thinking. I must have got a newer R2 kit and they made some running changes. I'll try it the way i had it.
