For the SPR02 bending guys like me I use the new longer ST05L shock rod last Friday and Saturday in combination with the D2 damper without bending anything.
The shocks still need to be oriented correctly so the rotor don't hit inside the chamber!

there is a writeup of the different kits here - http://www.awesomatixusa.com/p/kits.html

two kit types are being offered for import currently - A700 Evo 2 (ROAR National Champion) and A700L2. kits have been delayed because of Chinese New Year part delays --- Oleg ran out of shocks. kits will hopefully ship soon -- but only Oleg knows when...

I am curious how the longer shock rod affects bending the SPR02, given it just passes through and all you have is just more extra extending beyond it?

I think it's just a question of leverage or angle of leverage...
A MM or two can make a big difference.
It's not like I was bending SPR02 like crazy but in some cases I was very perplex about why the bending occur.
Maybe Oleg can light us more on the reason but I was even thinking sometimes the bending was more a kind of hydrolocking than hitting the chamber or the stopper on the shock holder.

Whatever if it just work it's a 15$ well spend

But the shock rod still connects to the SPR02 at the same distance, the long aspect of the shock rod just extends beyond the SPR02 so the leverage wouldn't change, just more material extending beyond. Unless the shock rod under full compression contacts the RHS screw and that stops it from compressing more. I figured the longer shock rods, were for people extending the track width out to 200mm with the longer arms some folks are making now.

Not giving you grief, and anything that can stop SPR02 failures would be awesome. Just figure I would ask

A longer st05 will maintain contact with the top of the rotor and not allow bending. I think this is only a more recent issue as our newer setups have been running smaller A gaps with the ability to add more damping in the damper

4 are for the diff, the other 4 are for the pinion gear thats on the diff.

You might want to hold off, I have had no issues with the stock bearings. Save your money for track time with the new platform

Thx Mark,

The diff bearings are the outside ones? and the others are the bevel gear bearings?

Thx

If you decide to go ceramic, I think Acer is the way to go. $67 for a whole set for the Awesomatix. You have to type Awesomatix in the search field to find the set for the A700 kit.
