Did you add more droop? or just change ride height?

Is it just the 3.0 truggy . Is there a difference between the 2.0 or 3.0 ?

This is what happened during my last race weekend. Both front shafs are gone. Don't get how could this happen, I didn't crash hard, it was just one of the many (high) jumps during the race weekend. Any ideas what could go wrong?

Can be done if landed while braking or landed more on one wheel after high jumps.

When I was still just learning, I also bent few shock sharfts, but always there was some explanation - I saw when it could happen.

Not sure when Sym will be back on, but I saw him Wednesday and looked at his car. Battery tray comes forward to the stock ESC location basically. From what he said, some of the holes on battery tray line up already. We looked at it and he'd had to drill 2 additional, but it looked like you could just drill the two additional holes after you mounted the tray. Yes, he had Dremeled just a small area off the right front of battery tray. shouldn't be a hard mod. Soon as I finish building my new Yokomo I'm going to do it to a friend's car.

To be honest I don't exactly remember, I think I removed a little bit of droop though. I'll try to get a setup posted...

You do have make room in the bottom of the tray to clear two screws . 2 holes line right up , the right rear and the left middle. I drilled and tapped a right front hole. I won't be able to upload a picture until Monday . if you take your tray out and move it around some , you will see it line up. Its solid enough without the new holes to test it . if you want to make it permanent , you should add new holes.
