All memories for me but good ones. It's a good quality build thats for sure.

Those shocks are nice quality, but when I have time I might build a set of Gmades for it.

Time for the CVDs. Quality is good and I can already see the difference over the stock dog bones

Nnother nice thing I noticed about the CVD's when I was assembling mine last night is that axle stub is about 3mm longer than on the dog bones. I'm sure they did that to allow for the wider hexes that the SBK includes (8mm on SBK vs. 6mm on the rtr), but I was really glad to see that as I've always run wide hexes and having enough thread for a nyloc nut to grab can become an issue..

Now that you mention it I did notice the bigger hex

Axles sitting in some pretty SSD Chubs and knuckles. The knuckles are really heavy at 60grams each.

Those knuckles are some heavy lumps. Hope the build is going ok for you. I can't get out for a real run until the weekend, but theres an area of rough ground near me to test on.
