solid layshaft is the aluminum one with part number 305502 Solid Alu Central Layshaft Set ? am i right?
Ok, I see what you mean about the layshaft spring steel...I've never tried it because I believe it's heavier than the aluminum solid layshaft. I prefer lightening that area beacause it is probably the most constant moving part.

Try it out and see for yourself what is best suited for you...if budget will allow it

yep i plan on doing that, i know decreasing weight on the rotating mass is one of the secrets to speed.

happy racing

If you are racing the car you really need the ALU shock bodies in de rear. The plastics ones will break if you are hit from behind.

i beleive even a strong hit wont really shatter the plastic shock bodies, was runnin last night, and coz of set up problems, my car was fishtailing all over, had several hits, rather bad ones, especially in the rea, with no damage being brought upon the shocks.

hence, i think in terms of durability, those plastic shocks are unquestionably tough.

Theywill break if you are hit, seen it happen lots of times. I think you are just lucky so far.

4 weeks ago I raced at a clubrace, my car was standing on the grid when a car hit my rear at full speed.(the idiot was doing a warmup lap).
After the start I noticed a rear shock had come loose and I stopped after 1 lap.
In the 2nd final the same thing happened with another car. That car was using the composite shock bodies and one broke.

I don't know if you will notice a difference. I am just finishing my 2nd car which will have composite shocks so maybe I will notice a difference. May not.
(I plan to take the 2 alu. shocks off the front of my first car and put them on the rear of the second car)

evaa.
Get the Alu shock housing.
Its worth the money and less pain during race day.
Furthermore, its easier to screw in the cap and the adjuster.
It wont be so easy to strip the thread on the shock body too.
As for performance, cant see or feel any.
