RDRP B6 titanium lower shock screw set

See: RDRP

Revolution Design Racing Products have introduced the B6 titanium lower shock screw set that includes four clever lower shock mount screws made from high-quality titanium. The fasteners do away with the standard steel screws and they are of a unique design that only has threaded sections where they are needed, while areas to which the lower shock eyelet bushings attach are of a plain design for improved durability and precision. The screw heads are also unique in the way that they feature dual 2mm and 5.5mm hex sections that allow to use 2mm hex or 5.5mm nut drivers to fasten or loosen the screws. Included in the set are two front and two rear shock mounting screws.

Serpent SDX4 roll center spacer

Serpent have introduced a roll center spacer for the Spyder SDX4. Made from 2mm aluminum hard coated, the spacer fits below the differential into the chassis.  You can also put 2 on top of eachother to create 4mm spacer. The design is made such way that the 2 spacers will also lock in position. Depending on the plates use you may need to also space out the rear stiffener. Increasing the roll center will move the differential higher as well, creating more grip and steering, but less easy to drive.
