As I’ve mentioned earlier the Lunch Box comes with friction dampers, which means not really dampened at all. Despite it being quite fun to drive I decided to upgrade to the C.V.A. Short Shock Unit Set II.
Here’s a shot of how the old friction dampers just push the rod up through the chassis. The Lunch Box comes with metal mounts for the short shock kit.
Since I got the pimpin’ Gold Edition my old shock housings were chrome, the new ones aren’t. But I can live with that :)
New dampers and springs installed.. Now when I do the “drop test” it “sticks” instead of bouncing back up at me. I’m taking it for a spin today so we’ll see how it handles.
