And for those of you from Rain City I gave my Setup to Debbie, and will send my full setup in shortly to jeff so it can be posted on the website.

Default Shock Pistons

I am rebuilding my shocks and noticed the piston are smaller than the new ones I have. What is the difference between I guess the stock piston verses the 1.3 pistons? What is gain/loss, car reaction, transitions in the turns etc.

Are they moving the bottom of the shock out more?

Although it doesn't say it on there, my setup also had the SRC x-long extensions...

If you don't want to get them or can't, run a 22 or 24 lb spring. I believe all of us that ran the x-long extension (myself, dayger, TJ, atomic) ran the 19 lb rear spring.

Shookie, that's the standard item. The SRC one moves the shock further out on the arm.

Are the arms with no number on them soft? The others are marked with 50 and 75, right? I put whatever came with the original UK kit on the front and I haven't had nearly the trouble with breakage.

I ran 6 packs through the car tonight (in practice) and didn't break a thing. I didn't hit much either, aside from taking a few turns too tight, but front impacts just disappear into the wonderful bumper. We'll see how things go tomorrow night during club racing, but so far, I've had much better luck with the softer arms up front.

What do you guys do about replacing bearings? Do you just buy more Corally bearings? I bought a ceramic kit from ACER, and they didn't hold up well at all. All the bearings in the outside of the hubs died after a couple of months, and the larger bearings the diffs ride on are starting to suffer as well. I had much better luck with the stock bearings. I cleaned and oiled both religiously, but those damn ceramics, while smooth, are terribly delicate. I'm probably due for another set to replace those suffering and have a few spares on hand.
