Well, those are some shock scraps that I have picked up and built over these years. So only 2 or 3 sets are new type while the others are the old type screwed on piston. All of them are also not adjustable type. Some of them I have built from the fixed type pistons. But all of them with purple O rings, red shock bladders and foam inserts.

Well, it's also pretty expensive. You could also get the JP FX12 engine. Very expensive too.

What do the others think about this engine? Any experience / observations? Goldfinger / Pyramid?

The stock clutch setting is a little soft. You either use the stock clutch mounts with the new yellow shoe as it bites better or mod the clutch and use the black shoe to get it to bite better.

Well, not quicker acceleration but better clutch engagement.

Don't get me wrong, I'm trying to encourage all of us to stick by the rules even though we all love the outlaw class

OK, I'm off to the track ... byeeee!
WAS THAT A SHOT AT ME??? AND MY BODS??? LOL... I WOULD NEVER BREAK THE RULES "Da Hellion"

Just wait for the stripped shocks It`s rude of you to point out/quote that message as it clearly stated what those `craps` all about if you read it.

Good to know the car is working good for you.

Yes I have no shims under the head. Thought the 25% nitro was blowing my glowplugs because of that but it seemed to work fine now
