So to to be clear. The rear shock mounted to the rear of the arm is new.. Hupo stated eos was the first race they tried the setup snd dirt was next, but not sure when. Now, to do the mod, all i did to the arms was mount the left on the right and the right on the left. This does not effect toe or wheelbase. And then cut clearance on the wing for the shocks and done. Some people will nock the idea but i enjoy testing and tweaking, this may or may not work for you period! But to say it wont work is just being small minded. Test On!

Agree that the toe won't be affected, but looking at the arms they are asymmetrical where the hub goes, so if you don't change your shimming this operation should give you a couple of mm extra wheel base, moving the rear wheels a bit further back, or is there something that I am missing out on?

Ill look at that again. Edit: Took some arms out of the package and i found that the wheelbase will not be affected as the arms are symetrical looking at the pins and pin gap alignment

8ight-e, I actually have the droop limited about 5mm, so that's not it. And that still wouldn't explain why it only happens to one side.

how does your wheel hub look on that side is the pin bent or anything im sure you had it apart by now to check, im thinking you may have the wrong spring , on mine had this issue when i bought it the diff and slipper spring were close to the same length if you count the number of coils it should be no more than four on the diff or the length compressed would change (so nut out to far)

Guys I ran the +10 Tresrey chassis this weekend. Let's just say it is the best my car has been to date. It's super consistent, easy to drive, and very comfortable. I did go back to 4 hole pistons, I felt more safe with this setup. I'll test more soon with 2 hole pistons soon. Proline Velocity wheels are the bomb!

anybody running 2 hole pistons ?
I have 1.6mm 2 hole in the back, running on low grip little bumpy and rutted dirt track.

this 2 hole piston wil soak up the small rutts and bumps very good and still enough pack when I have to land hard

so slow damper action has no or little pack, and fast and hard damper action has good pack

Yes, I've been running 1.7mm (Losi 37.5 lt red) front and 1.6 (Losi 32.5 lt red) back for about 3 months. Seems to be same static dampening as 4 hole but significantly more pack. No more chassis slapping and more consistent chassis roll.

Same here original outdrives wore as same rate good life out of them, New one's Iv'e gone thru 2 sets of out drives with the one side wearing a lot faster than the other? I also have 4mm limiters in my shocks so rules out plunge vibration theory IMO. I hope they just had a bad batch...
