There's nothing wrong with rear motor!

It has been a long time coming but I now have carbon fiber chassis blanks with a nose kick. That means that hopefully I'll finally get on with a new 210 chassis design. It just takes time which is something I don't have much of. I now have 20, 25, and 30 kick options. Getting warmer!

Do you know what offset the standard ones are? You only get two -2 per pack of four as it also comes with zero offset.

Thanks for that setup Pittster, but just maxing the collars still leaves with with 30 mm front and 25 rear.

I could lower it via droop screws as well. I don't need more steering, traction roll is my main nemesis right now but I do need to get it down lower.

doesn't sound right I have black front springs Pink rears with a 45g rear weight (I run on Med traction dirt)and I set mine to 23mm ride height front rear and collars on back are 8mm down and front are around 3mm down from shock top.

What springs do you have installed ?

Standard are zero offset.

What springs are on your buggy? 30/25mm is pretty high for the collars wound up fully.

Dark Blue front springs. Most setups call for stiffer but it's all I have.

Hi Fred,

Sounds good!
Looking forward to see the final product...

Something does sound off. What tires are you using? How are the steering knuckle spacers installed? v1 or v2?
Chucked some dark blue springs on mine and it was sitting at 26mm with 3mm preload, no battery installed and the knuckle spaced up 2mm.

Does anyone know where to get the sidepod aluminum spacers that extend the v1 sidepods with the front chassis brace when using a +8mm chassis? I was wanting to use my Jconcepts body and with the v2 sidepods i cant.

Rebar tires on standard looking rims.

It is a V1, and I was recently convinced to run the V2 arms. Is there a step in installing the V2 armsI am missing that is causing the ride height issues? I also have V2 towers.

Which spacers are the steering knuckle spacers? I am not sure what part you are referring to. Are these the ones behind and infront of the caster insert?

Some carpet specific tires can make a big difference in ride height, here's a comparison pic between a dirt and carpet Proline tire.


I can't think of anything that would case the difference in ride height by swapping arms. Could you take a picture so we can see if there is anything wrong?

I was refering to the spacers above/below the knuckle.

Do you make the lower ride height with the v1 arms ? The shock mounting point on the v2 arms are higher than the v1 arms so unless you do the shorter shock shafts and bodys you will have a higher ride height in the front. I ran into this same problem so I went back to the v1 arms and my problem was fixed. Personally I liked the v1 front setup better than the v2.
