The kit was suppose to ship with a set of long and a set of short. Instead the first run shipped with 4 short.

Yep, contact your seller or distributor and they will sort it out for you.

also check the universal where it goes into the bearing on the hub and make sure it’s not hitting the arm, rotate the wheel at full droop while checking it

I have just bought the D819 driveline, i have heard that the front dogbone can pop out. Is anyone having this problem?

I would like to know what makes this conversion part worth the upgrade? I havenít heard much on why it was needed on the new car.

It frees up the drive train a bit,which helps the car carry more corner speed and spool up quicker out of a corner. Ive just converted my car and i couldn't feel any difference but my lap times were a fraction quicker. The slimmer front hubs definately make the car turn in quicker,i found i had to go down in the shock oils as well.

I gain a 1 to 1.5 second a lap off my time on the same track.

Times don't like lie.

The drivetrain is much smoother and more free!

built several D817 kits and never was missing one screw or part. Built one D819 and was missing a few screws, and had the wrong rear shock ends. I am sure the factory will clean this up, just first runs to get the kit out always suffer.

Yup same boat.

Whats the deal with Fastrace? Why are their caps and bladders so "good"? The bladders look like Serpent bladders. (At least the ones with the Cobra kit)
