    Titanium is a better material, much stronger than alum or regular steel rods.
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    Well worth the $$. The LT Ti rods, I hit a T post at about 35 mph right on the rod & it bent it just a bit. Took it apart straight'n it out still running..
    Well still finishing the 5ive, I'm in no hurry, so haven't drove it yet...making battery hold downs & finish painting the body.
    I really do like driving them all. Took the Summit out yesterday. I think the dogs had more fun than I did. Ha.. They are napping right now.

    I think you got your 1518,1515 and 1512's mixed up. I have never seen a black 1512 1800kv. Do you think the rod ends will get smashed up on the threads without the blue washer things?

    ooop you are correct the first pic is the 1518 1800kv on the left.

    I tried to use the alum rod spacers, but there is nothing for the spacer to shoulder on. The "width" of the space is short too,
    I tried doubling spacers, but it was to wide to set the push rod length. They are working SO far so good.....I had the Titanium push rods for the LT rockers on my Revo & I never had any trouble with the rod ends either....

    Went for a easy run, everything looked & sounded good. Few small jumps nothing big, just an easy run. Went to blow it off & clean it up & the shock caps are leaking (all four).

    If you remember I took the blatters out of the stock caps & put them in the alum caps. I drilled two small breather holes in the top of the cap. I lost a little less than half the fluid. It looked liked the fluid was coming out of the threads of the cap.. So I took the caps off & measured them to the stock caps. Everything is right on. I am thinking I need to make the breather holes just a little bigger. If the air is not coming out of the breather holes fast enough, so it is pushing the shock fluid out of the threads of the cap??? I didn't want to drill the hole in the side like the stock cap, because of the threads on the inside of the cap. Also if I missed the placement it might leak. (hahaha)

    Any ideas or suggestions.. thanks...

    Did you got around fixing (or using...) your alum shock caps? I'm looking at putting GH ones. Not sure about the top drill...Looks to me this would allow the bladder to deform too much due to lack of pressure between the bladder and the inside top of the cap. The side bleeder hole seems useful to prevent oil pressure in the threads on plastic caps as they could expand causing leak, not the case with alum...just a thought...

    idk right or wrong, i drilled the top of the cap for two reasons.
    1) I didn't want to screw up the threads inside the cap
    2) I didn't want to miss on centering the the hole on the side of the cap (to high or low)

    I took a cap to work & lathed off .020 ~ .030, it just seamed the cap was bottoming out before the cap tight'n to the blatter.
    I have yet to test tho........

    I think the breather hole is to let the air push out as the blatter cycles. Also lets the extra oil out if you over fill the shock.
