The body and paint came out great.

I also took my kit out for its first shakedown today, its a pretty good rig as it comes. Though I noticed a fair bit of torque twist with the soft (white) springs I was using, swapping in the gray springs in the rear helped.

One thing I've only noticed just now is all of the slop in the driveshaft CV's, are yours sloppy too? Theres play in and out and side to side unlike any CV joint I've ever seen. It almost feels like its not assembled correct but I'm fairly certain I did it right (I've build many-a driveshaft).
So I think after weighted knuckles driveshafts are next on the list for me.

Just checked mine and compared them to the TRX4 driveshafts I run on my TF2 and they are close to the same? Maybe a bit more play than the TRX4 shafts, but not much?

I’ve been talking to Treal, they are working on some brass options for the Enduro, I might even end up with some pre production units to test. I guess we’ll see.

Hello Carlos, good to hear from you.

Hope all is going well.

Yea, after several years away, I’m back on the rocks. 👍🏼

That's different type of lube.

So this afternoon I went on search. Started at a local motorcycle dealer looking for some Noleen SF3. Strike one.

Checked out one of the local sporting good stores that had an active mountain biking section looking for some Judy Butter. Another swing and a miss.

So onto the next shop. A locally owned bike shop. Walking in and asked the kid at the counter if they had any Buzzy’s Slick Honey. He was like, “sure do”.

Awesome! So I bought a tube and headed back to the shop to get my build on.

Hopefully this will be beneficial to others looking for a Green Slime alternative.
I went straight to the source and bought a jar awhile back.
Our Noleen Greases Products - Noleen J6 Technologies

Judy Butter, takin us back a few years in RockShox.

My only RockShox were the original elastomer ones... (bleargh!)

Wine corks to the rescue!

Now, I'm a retrogrouch that only rides a fully rigid cro-mo frame and fork.

No wonder I feel so old and creaky these days!

(but I digress...)

I hadn’t heard of any of this stuff until I went looking for a Green Slime alternative.

I was hoping to find the SF2 from Noleen that Nate mentioned, but my local bike shop had the Honey Butter, so that’s what I’ll be using for the foreseeable future due to the amount I purchased.

Works fantastic, by shock are as slick as snot!👍🏼
