Sick build! I ordered a sakura monoshock setup for my Sprint 2 to see how that works. Last night i was able to get the Sakura AuperD rear camber link mixing kit installed on the sprint 2. A little rigging and got it all set up.

Beautiful build. I love the finished look.
Have a question if you don't mind. What is the benefit of the shock placed upside down? I see the rear suspension works really soft & smooth.
Not only the initial compression but also the lateral release is slow & smooth. Is that what flipped shock did?
I have 3*1.5mm & 2*1mm holes on the rear shock with #350 oil and don't think it can achive that amount of smooth movement.
It is smooth enough for me but the rebound is too quick.

Thanks guys!

@aackjw, the only benefit of inverting the shocks is to prevent TRF from leaking.

Not sure if this helps, I use the TRF X-Rings. But what seem to make the dampers rebound fluidly are the pistons drilled out to 4 or more holes to allow the oil to flow fasterm another thing is to extend the shock length a little by using the TRF dampers longer ball ends. I forgot the overall length of the dampers and since i moved the TRF dampers to my TT02 RWD and used a different spring the length is different now.
