    I'm looking for info on the Vekta.5, what are some common problems with it. Also, has Kraken addressed the problem with a design change in production of current kits.

    I've tried searching via google, and found these problems:

    Rear shocks pop off top mount - seen a few aftermarket solutions along with home made stuff.

    Rear lower end links breaking - many aftermarket companies offer metal parts.

    A guy I race with has been braking rims so he got ddm alloy rims and started braking stub axles. He also got IRP upper rear links and the alloy mount. Seems like he has also replaced clutch bell bearings a few times.
