Class has exploded around here. We are getting 2-3 heats on club nights now...

Why not ebay? I see a couple and one is the same price as amain with free shipping. Both are from hobby stores, so you could instead buy directly from them.

Hi guys, need ur help!

Today I was measuring droop on my buggy making sure everything is symetrical left to right, but found that my front right droop is 3 mm greater than the left side.

My first guess was shock length discrepancy, but I check them both and both are exactly the same.
Next I checked right height and both sides were equal.
Then I checked camber, and the right side was 1 degree off but didn't make real difference in droop value.
I also check my hinge pins to see if they were bent or binding and both sides look ok.

I've run out of ideas as to what to check... any ideas anyone?

OK, if your shocks are exactly the same length (correct internal spacers etc) and you have them mounted top and bottom in the same holes then the angle of droop must be the same. If the angle of droop is the same but you have different wheel levels, then you could check the hub spacers - ensuring you have the same height each side.

If the shocks are the same length i'd take them off and measure droop without shocks first. Make sure nothing is binding and like he said make sure the spindles are the same height.

check that you have bushings the same way between casterblock and steering block.
basic setup for clay is long bushing in up position.

Shakedown was awesome. Even with an 8.5 in it was a rocket. Wing is mangled, and the car took some 4x4 short course abuse, but nothing broke (some of the incidents would have turned a B44 into dust). I'm super happy with the buggy. Hands down best 4 wheel drive I have ever owned.

Too much risk of getting an older version. In my mind anyway. I know for sure if a big site like AMain shows a 2014, that's what I'll get.
