Questions?? Rear Bulk Shimo Edition

Hello, I have looked online and I found signs up to follow the theme of Shimo Edition. Question when I went to replace the Rear Bulk saw that there is a difference between the Shimo Edition and above. The current is the KY-VZ209C and the former was B. I've looked and can not find the difference someone has noticed .
Sorry but my English is not the best and prefer to use a translator .
Thank you. Carlos

It is a change in plastic. I think it a stiffer plastic.

the bulk head is the same , what the differance is is the shimo camber link has an extra hole in it , where the VZ209B has the original evo2 5 hole setup , either one will do
i have the 5 hole one on at the moment as i have a few setup ready to go for quick changes (have the camber links on and all, makes it a heap easier)

it depends on what you want or what the cars doing, but to make it easy running it say short low will allow the car to roll more on the rear, short high will stiffen the car up and make it sit flatter , but it depends on the track and grip really to how you would run it

VZW229-04 is not a clutch shoe. Its the backing plate.

The sirio clutch shoes fit as well. I did run a blue sirio shoe at the nats for a while.

I preferred the spool at Toledo, it doesn't have the tight high speed chicanes that would make me choose a diff. If I ran a diff, it would have been in the 200k+ range so you should just save the weight and go spool.
