Where is the slop developing? Would adding an o-ring or 2 help? Like this:

How does your car drive mschumi101? I would think that your shocks are too tight. They need to have some play in them when your turning hard and the shock is compressed, that's why they have essentially a ball socket on top and bottom. The o rings are probably limiting their function a little bit.

Yeah the entire forum. I asked a question and not even a slight response. It's like the forth time. Just getting a little fed up. The one guy that did help out people "cherry". He gets ripped in to all the time. That's how I see it. It's all good I can figure out things on my own and from locals.

I saw your question. I didnt respond because I didnt chop up my water fall. Therefore, I dont know. A local cut his up, but I didnt care enough to ask about it, because I dont plan on running that inline pack setup.

Luckily, most offer a 100% money back guarantee if your questions aren't answered in a timely fashion.

That's almost enough brass to qualify as a MM 22

I personally have a different solution for conditions that would require that much weight...it's 1515 grams and has a motor hanging off the back...

Kidding aside, nice work

The xfactory chassis is like 70g lighter. Faster? Well it is light, so it "should" have more "kick". Locally a few drivers tried it on high bite and said it had "weird" flex. Like it would flex and snap back. Making the car well weight. But again, this is on high bite. On lower bite, I am sure that would be less of an issue.

Well, if you think about it "cherry" would still be posting on here if he just stuck to being informative instead of claiming that he is "god's gift to wrenches and solutions" all the time.
