There is also a reseller in Japan.



Yes, the Rev6 and the Formula 2 front end uses the same Teflon shims. It is important to replace the orings when there is slop between them and the kingpin. There is a new retention mechanism that supports the oring from the bottom with three screws to help it last longer. You can see a pic here :

You can still use the same spacer as on the original formula front end. ASC8179.

Add a shim at both ends to keep the same shock angle.

Default Rear shock

I'm building a REV6 and noticed I can't fit my 1S lipo pack under the front of the shock with the provided spacer under the ball stud.

Am I doing something wrong? Are people using more spacers.

My batteries have no swelling.

Thanks Greg G

CRC's Gen XL shock mount is a nice way to raise the shock with out needing shims. I hate having to find enough shims and a long enough ball stud to stay solid.

2.191" on the caster link, 2.001" on the camber link. Both are center to center dims.
This should give you 3 deg. of caster and -2 deg. of camber.
