I have conveted one of my cars ti the mod where the ball joint is drilled through the bell crank. I can confirm that the steering felt much smoother and more consistent.

Thanks Nerdling!

Now what is this drilled cap mod? My cap collars had a hold drilled in them but I don't think this is what everyone is talking about.

There is an additional hole people are putting in the upper shock mount plastics. Drill a hole (I used a number 55 drill bit) that vents the area behind the bladder. This prevents pressure from behind the bladder from adding rebound, or changing the rebound as the temperature changes.

ecs shafts not required, all you need are the plastic blades like on the rear axles #305421

Found I can't use 52mm driveshafts with them as the plastic blades foul slightly on the edges of the outdrives.

The usability of Nikita outdrives with 52mm drive shafts really depends upon how wide you run the front end. At the standard 1.5mm shimming they fit but it is really close. Steve Sohl ran 52mm with 2.25mm arm shimming at the ROAR Asphalt Nats

Some more info on 2012. Looks like everyone is getting what they want except alumn shocks. All other stuff looks to be a welcome change!

EA
With hordes of customers buying the other brand of shocks?
