Car is absolutely dialed! It pushes just a little bit, but holy crap this car is awesome. I even did a half-assed job building the shocks.
I thought you always talked about yourself in the third person?

It wasn't THAT bad. Definitely leaves room for improvement though. A prototype like that would get the guy fired in my line of work.

I would guess that the first company to make a "Wildcat-approved" chassis will sell them like crazy.

Torque flex ?

Can't go by your experience with the smaller & weaker ball studs, the new studs are way stronger .

Yes, less stall with the inline..

Or twist flex. By cutting out the brace pieces between the battery section and electronic section.

Bone
Yes, by grinding off the battery tray & inside legs of water fall ?
Achieves more flex just in front of the water fall ...

Idea is to get the front to flex more equally with the rear.

The 4 hole pistons are for improved cornering, they don't really improve performance on jumps or bumps .
Aah ok thanks for the reply and I've seen the pictures of your car now so I can see where you are going with it

Just round off the sharp edges till they fit properly in the shock bushings. Mine have been awesome.

1.7 with the heavier wt oil is OK with 3 limiters. But I hear it's worth gettin the 3x1.4

now that were on the topic of shock pistons. can someone please clarify for me. "more holes=more pack"? ive been hearing to different things here locally. Ive been hearing the 3x1.4 give you more pack in the front. Now with more pack in the front your gonna lose some steering right I ask because Ive heard some say they have lost steering and other say they have gained steering. btw Im one of few at my track to have kept the gullwing arms on the car.

Debating on changing my stock shock set-up. Drove for the first time(med bite clay)and the car seemed nose high on every jump. Any suggestions on a change? Could have been me on the throttle too long also...
