HPI blue/blue can be a great lower grip spring to try as well. HPI silvers were better for our locals over 2015 blue or greens this summer.

Yokomo springs on carpet have always been a great option.

Would use 4 screws for the spoiler at the back instead of just the screws they provided. I feels the car is more stable that way though it may just be my imagination

No, there shouldn't be any play. I had some issues with the ball joint at the end of the shaft not fitting into the bottom plate that holds the spring. Luckily the ARC rep in my country changed it for me.

Is it with all four shocks or just 1 or 2. I noticed that since the pistons are slightly undersized in the shock bodies, that will allow for the piston/shock shaft assembly to have a bit of play side to side. The orings will still seal the shaft. I originally used the "x" style grooved oring, but with that little bit of play the "x" oring allows air to enter the bottom of the shock so i opted to go back to the original silicone oring in the kit and the shocks seem to work well.

nene - you can contact me directly at [email protected] if in the US/Canada. If not, PM me where you are from and I will find out the contact for you.

If you feel the part is defect, you can send the bad part to us and we will replace it. Also you can email a picture with details and we can try to help confirm it as well.

It is all for shocks. The guy that was helping me said it shouldnt be like that and he showed another guy and he was really surprised. The piston does not wiggle on the shaft by itself, it is the shock guide.

I noticed this too. The pistons are actually quite a bit smaller than the bodies. Was this by design to let oil pass through the outer edge? Will take measurements later.

Getting a bit frustrated with the lack of parts availability for the 2015. I have been waiting for top plates to come back in stock as a spare for a month now. This past weekend I broke mine and had to use a 2013 plate. Got lucky that I even had that. Green big bore long are impossible to get. Help me ob-nick, your my only hope! 😁
