Default Suspension binding issue

During my Tomahawk build, I finally realised the mistake I had made which caused my re-re Scorpions rear arms to bind. Having owned many of these chassis, I just simply assumed it should be built like my original one.

The two suspension shaft holders have a tapered end. The correct way to install them is: install the taller one with taper side up and the shorter one taper side down,. Its clearly shown in the manual but I overlooked it.

Then I think you need some wheel adapters.

Anybody have any tips on to how to fill and bleed the stock shocks? I'm having a hell of a time getting them done right.

Im running 17.5. Short will work fine.. you will just have to position it to your preference for weight distribution

Thank you, do you fill your diff with a different fluid, or is it a non issue?
