So, I'm going on a couple of years abusing mine. Any rules of thumb for when I should be thinking about rebuilds? Car continues to drive really well.

Track hooning 200hrs.
Chasing national championships 100hrs.
Street driving, pretty much never

or if they start losing damping or if they start leaking and you have to turn the damping up to keep the same level of performance.

At the level of track/autocross I plan on doing, that is nearly 20 years...

What causes the quicker wear with the track/race use? Is it driving over the little concrete things at the corners?

Watched the detent mechanism video. My gen 2's only have 16 positions (15 clicks). Could this be a detent adjustment error?

Driving over curbing, transferring from 1.4G load left to 1.4G right and then back again in a few seconds, hard brake diving every 9 seconds, tank slappers when you **** up, mowing grass when you really **** up, and doing this over and over again for dozens of miles at a time.

Vs

Driving across Kansas on i70 and not compressing a shock once for a few hundred miles.

Those are the two extremes of course. Chasing nationals means the car is constantly on the bleeding edge. DE 4 hooning is a tick down from that with less aggressive tires and typically less aggressive driving (those 2/10ths don't matter right now). Street driving puts a surprising many factors less wear on everything. There's a reason street tires are rated for 60k mile runs and some track tires are rated in the dozens depending on use.

Thank you for the clicker adjustment video. My Xidas have a really mushy 19th click and judging by this video a very small adjustment will make it perfect.

Ahh that makes a ton of sense. Someone competing is going to be running the stickiest and widest tires possible. I've never run anything more aggressive than dot legal r compounds nor sacrificed the car's longevity in the name of fractions of a second.

I keep re-watching trying to figure out how to go full hard
Also trying to find where these stack up on a scale of sickest to most diseased

The parts where I warn the viewer not to touch the nitrogen port or bottom body locking collar, ignore that for full hard race A spec RR

Stage 949, just make sure you get a retune before racing so you don't blow your welds on your intake

Maybe I'm having a false memory, but didn't Gen I XIDA's have a lifetime warranty? Do Gen 2?

I know this is pretty off topic but I just got my Gen 2's in with the coaxial mounts. Where can I find recommended ride height/alignment specs?

Alignment specs are on 949Racing.com if you google for them. Approximately 3 turns of the collar equals 1/4".
