I dont understand .... X2 COil does not exist. why is it mentioned by trek peeople .
this is wierd..

Can someone explain to me the HARDware needed in the SDeluxe coil or the hardware needed for the fox coil?

thanks!!!!!



x2=DHX2.

the hardware is explained earlier in this thread. google the trek parts diagram for the slash. you need two thru axles, one upper, one lower, and two long bushings with spacers. one upper, one lower.

Has anyone had an issue with the iscg holes being drilled incorrectly? I’ve just gone to fit a guide to a box fresh 2022 Slash 8 only to find all of the holes wont align, I had a few spacers for different guides and it’s impossible the align all three holes at the same time.
Sorry if this has been covered.

your guide is iscg05?

Yes iscg05, The holes are definitely too far out to fit a guide.

I got a chain guide the other day and realised this. I did some researching and found out there meant to be like that but you have to run quite a spacer or a few washers and get some longer bolts for it to work.

The standoff, isn’t the main issues, the clearance is tight tho, you can only get two of the three iscg bolts in at the same time, I’ve taken a photo but can’t for the life on me upload it.

What have you done about it if you don’t mind me asking? This looks like a pretty big quality control issue to me.

You could use the fun chain guide and bash guard combo since that’s a 2 piece guard and only requires 2 holes to line up. I know the bash part works because I’ve used it and can imagine the guide will to.

There are a few options but the bike hasn’t been used and should be right from the get go, I’d rather have one that wasn’t made incorrectly, I’ll probably try and return it.

This is more a shock question than anything ... I just swapped my DX2 to a Super Deluxe ultimate .. its a new shock, but the rebound is still a bit quick for my liking ... what is the process to get that slowed down even more?

The Super Deluxe Ultimate should have a rebound dial on the top of the shock body (if it is the latest SDU shock). You can rotate this counter-clockwise to slow the rebound. If you have it turned down and you still find it to be too fast, you could have too much air pressure making the shock stiff, but you should also check your lockout to make sure you have the shock open when testing the rebound.

Thanks for the reply, Mitch. I do run my suspension stiff … 220psi for a rider that ways 170 … but that’s how I like it ‍♂️ I definitely know how to adjust the shock, it’s full turtle ;-) and unlocked. What I’m asking is is there something internal that can be revalved/adjusted to slow it down more.
