Hey everyone, we wanted to provide a quick update regarding the specs of V2 ALT, CTRL, and SHIFT keyboards—specifically, the bottom case foam. The bottom case foam spec on the product page has been updated to reflect production units, which use a PE foam in the bottom of the case (all other foams are PORON and IXPE as noted in the specs). V2 keyboards were in production when the decision was made to normalize all foams to PORON in the Foam Upgrade Kits, hence the discrepancy between the two products.  As always, we continuously evaluate our products and community feedback to make minor adjustments going forward.  As usual, you may review your order at any time by going to your transactions page here: Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Sincerely, The Drop Team
@HoffmanMyster Shouldn't the specs at the bottom mention PCB mount stabilizers? I see the PCB stab holes
No, stabilizers are not included with the barebones keyboards.
Oh gotcha. I remember one of my builds having clearance issues at some point. Some PCB mounts are thicker than others, but I remember some PCB mount can slip through the plate hole.

While I do think adding the barebones options to the V2s is cool, it's pretty disappointing that the LEDs are still north facing, as that can sometimes interfere with switch installations on some switches. Not that big of a deal but it's kind of unfortunate all the same.
liquid801HLMWe do have a few projects in the pipelines with southfacing LEDs like the CSTM80. For these V2 boards they are meant to be a continuation of our original keyboard line - with a focus on LEDs and shine through keycaps.
