    So some time ago i bought a set of used saw 2.0s... Well they were in rough shape needed new innards. And a top plate was egged out. Scince saw no longer sells the top plates for their "rebuildable" coilovers. and their discounted price to trade in because they dont support their products was more expensive the 90% of online venders:rimshot: So i could either buy new ones at $1200 i dont think so. I could either part them out OR make an air powered spud gun out of them:D Fancy shrader valves and its just cool to have a coilover cannon.

    So i have the tube with the valve and im trying to find a threaded quarter turn valve big enough to thread onto the end of the tube.(will need to get the tube threaded)

    Any idea's?

    Yea they said they cannot because the no longer make the old top plates. They then told me they would send me a quote to upgrade for newer style coils that was more than the average vendor...

    Unless certain retailers happen to be dumping them and selling them for less than they pay for them:playball: Who knows:confused:

    Anyways i feel its not worth buying new ones for a not so significant discount. So anyways i dont think the shock tube is big enough to launch a potato any real distance.
