I am assuming the plastic parts and other stuff you listed come in pairs.
The only reason I am saying this, is because have you ever bought serpent parts

Latest setup which I quite liked:

Front:
70 wt oil
Fantom pistons
Yellow fantom springs
oneway
50% front swaybar

Rear:
70 wt oil
Fantom pistons
Gold Rear springs
Diff with 10K
black swaybar
maximum rear camber link angle

This worked pretty darn nice with 40 shore front and rear. Car is precice, but the softer rear springs made the rear end lazier then yellow/yellow. Was far easier to drive however.

Hmmm . . . interesting.
We are running 50/45 oils, but it's probably appropriate for the our softer black springs.
I must confess, I've not experimented much with pistons. Are the Fantom ones much different?
Was this with the "modded" rear camber link?

While on the subject of camber links, using the Mugen rear hubs, we are still going to end up with a link that is somewhat longer than the Mugen. The Mugen being 34mm and the VoneR being 40mm approx.
I'm just thinking out loud and wondering if there is any value in moving the inner mounting outwards about 5mm. Thoughts?

with 40mm camber link length, my track width is 205mm. I need to reduse 5mm approx each side to make the trackwidth to 200mm so, it is more or less the same as 34mm on mugen

Ah, yes - thanks Manti.

Yes - the outer rod ends are a lot shorter, now.
Looks good.

Remember that there are two types of fantom pistons. The 2001 evolution and the 2001 type. I am unsure eactly which ones I have.

The fantom pistons provide heavier damping for the same given oil weight. So with my 70 wt oil it is probably more like 100wt. Also the different hole size affects the pack rate of the oil under sharp compression. It will be best for smooth tracks,
