The Ceramics are Super smooth and I have yet to have any wear issues with them at all

Depends on how you like the car to handle
I had been running #4 front and #5 rear on my car for a while, but I've now switched to #4 on both ends. thats measured with a yokomo gauge on the same point on the outer pins on the suspension arm
Basically if you need more front end into the turn, increase the amount of droop on the rear. If you need more front out of the turn, decrease the amount on the front (restricting weight transfer to the rear, reducing the rear grip).

Thanks for clearing that up. That's why I said "I believe..." Does the Excel version have more or less front downforce then?

That looks hot! Great job on sealing the carbon parts. I'm expecting my package today (well I was expecting it saturday, but today will have to do)

All that blue, it looks soooo good.

What kind of lubrication do you use with them

Cheers
I've used Acer ceramic diff balls in the past with good luck. They were very smooth and lasted forever. AE silicone diff lube was my choice.

Default Servo Horn

From which manufacturer is the servo horn (aluminium blue) that M.Rheinard and S.Maezumi were using at the worlds.
I can see in the pictures that is a long one.

Thanks

Im not sure who made the one they are running, but check on Speedtech's site under servos and they have one that looks like it could be it.

Yes I've saw that one, from racer's edge, but I'm not sure it's a long one.
Does someone have the one from racer's edge?
