The hps2 silva shock built correctly does not stick.build with 10% extension,absolutely no trapped air. it may take a few tries to get right but they do work well.
Yes they do use the an O-Ring like everyone else, but the o-ring is too big for the shock body and is too tight on the shock shaft. I have also built a lot of shocks. Nobody in on-road uses them for this reason.

from a geometry view a longer top arm reduces camber gain under compression but it also changes roll center and bumpsteer

it should smooth out the corner arc and carry more corner speed

The R/C Leprechaun. I can't find one anywhere either.
I have a 12R5.2 that I run once in a while just because it's a tough car (rarely ever break anything on it) and our track is a bit unforgiving at times.

Mr. Moore, if you have one you'd be willing to part with . . .

Interesting fact: AE's "products used" list, from Hebert's recent USIC win, includes his 1/12 motor and battery, but not chassis designation. The sedan is, of course, identified.

Taking into account the recent price drop, new kit on the horizon?

Any tips on using/assembling the existing AE factory team damper? I have assembled mine with 30 wt oil and the thing acts like I have 1000wt. seems to work only with very little oil in the damper. Any tips?

I need a temporary solution with the stock damper until I get an aftermarket replacement.

This little detail did draw my attention too... Definitely interested to know the answer!
