can you still use the green slime to lube the o-rings or with this process it's not needed

On these shocks all you need is the silicon shock oil. I never liked the green slime. It was messy and contaminated the shock oil.

Right now all our US setups are with no rebound, no orings or foam dots. However, we will be testing that in the future.

I use the Schumacher diff lube, just a light coating on the o-ring and spacer. Also, be sure and lube the shock shaft before installing through the o-rings!

Prepping the chassis is next. I run on road so I never have to get too crazy rounding edges. All I do is knock off every sharp edge on the chassis and CA the edges of the chassis and big openings. On asphalt we CA the chassis to prevent delamination if you hit a corner dot or some other object with the chassis.

The cell slots are the perfect size on the Mi3. DO NOT bevel the cell slots or you cell will poke out the bottom of the chassis. Just knock off all the sharp edges so the cell shrink is not cut.

Spend a little time on the tape slot to make sure the are smooth

The bulkheads go on to the chassis with 8 screws

The lay shaft assembly is next. there are a few critical things to look out for.

1. Do not over tighten the screws that hold the spur gear on. Just get them snug. If you crank them down they will deform the spur gear and it will look like a potato ship...not good.

2. I use a counter sunk washer and screw to secure the end of the lay shaft. The stock button head and washer will work perfectly but my way looks cooler.

3. The layshaft assembly has a little side to side play. I used one 0.1mm shim out of a Take Off 5mm shim kit (TT302) to tighten it up a little. I still have play but it is a bit less. Note that you must have some play. If you shim out all the play its less efficient and if you pick up carpet fuzz or some dirt it can cause binding.
