I have just put the Tekno ones in. They are 6 hole which need drilling obviously to what youíd normally run but as the kit ones are 5 hole it was a bit of guess work really. Iíve started with 6 x 1.4. Feels good with 500cst oil front and rear. Yet to be tested but this seems a good starting point to me.

Folks, can someone explain the physics behind the active toe. I haven’t finished the kit yet but how do the inserts allow the toe to change as the suspensions moves ?

thx

This is the first kit Iíve ever built that has emulsion style shocks. How often will I need to top off with oil and re-bleed them ? Iím guessing maybe at the start of each day at the track.

So if I build my shocks today will I need to bleed them if itís three weeks before I take my car out to the track ?

Silly question-where would you be putting these o-rings-on the piston shaft outside the shock body to restrict the amount of compression travel or inside the body above the piston?

Default Throttle servo horn?

Which throttle servo horn do I use with a protek servo? I stripped all three of them out 🤦🏻*♂️

The EB410 ones I bleed ever run, forgot to do this on it's maiden day, but testing again tomorrow night, so will see if it's worth while.
Put about 1.5L through it, and it seems great, hit a peg at full speed and throttle and no damages, easy to drive coming from a Tki4.
Have bumped oils up to 725/650 so see how that goes, was quite easy to drive and consistent over long runs, a little on power push, but for the seemingly average driver like me that probably not a bad thing

Protek is 25T same as futaba. Make sure you are setting your endoints correctly.

Any insight to the hard arms being longer? Great idea for a different material, being longer has me scratching my head tho.

How about some aluminum sway bar centering caps?

The harder material shrinks less in the mold.

Shrinkage was my first guess.

Alum sway bar collets would be awesome, I am already starting to see the ones one the front get pushed around cause I'm afraid to crank down on the plastic ones.

Matt, can you hazard a guess as to how long it will take for some or most of these features to make their way to the electric side of the house?
