Just installed some ECS shafts on my car. Hoping the rain stays away and i can get a run on Sunday

Associated bladders work a treat as well on the Xray shocks. 20 plus runs with no air and counting

Do they fit? That's great.

I have seen team drivers during Indoor EC using bladders with lower height than usual and they told me that xray is about to release them any time soon.

I have trouble building plastic shocks. Always loosing oil. That's why I used to use Tamiyas. Now with the aluminum ones I'm very happy and have no issues at all

Yep, they fit fine

I put the foam and bladder into the cap and then fill completely with oil and then screw the cap on a few turns. Then I push the shaft into where you want the rebound and then slowly screw the cap down all the way.

I find the Tamiya bladders allow the oil properly out of the bleed hole in the cap.

Also, being that the wrap goes around it, doesn't that creat a little bind in the movement of the shaft?

Also, the reason I'm using the shrink wrap is because my pins keep backing out. I never had this problem before. Should I just switch to the pins with the flat spot on them, lock tight, and don't worry about the wrap. Or save my money on buying the pins with flat spot and just shrink wrap? Thanks.
Just shrink wrap
have a look at my car next time at SWR

Default SPEC-R GEAR DIFF

Ok I ran 7 packs through it yesterday and it performed flawlessly. I had to take it apart and resand the gears one more time as it was still a bit tight and after doing that, I ran with 500much more oil and it was silky smooth. I had no timing but the laptimes definitely felt quicker and the car stayed consistent all day.

If I wanted to purchase an extra rear suspension arm, could I purchase the two hole are or do I have to get the one hole arm? From the pictures it looks like the one hole slot is in the middle of the two hole slot. Is that true?

Is anyone going to start producing kits for this and selling them?

Thanks for sharing this. I just put shrink wrap around the stock ones, came out nicely. I also bought a set of ecs and pins with the flat spot. Wish I knew I didn't need them. I guess I could have use those pins in the stock ones but I heard of people not even using set screws with shrink wrap.

yes it is true but the 2 hole arm is longer than the 1 hole arm.

You my want to hold onto those pins, if you run 13.5 or mod. I've broken those before

So is it more beneficial to switch to two hole or just stick with the one holes?
