shock total length is 60mm they are trf dampers about 3 years old. measured end to end. Are the spring collars too thick?
The pushrods are 14mm length measured on the inside of the pushrods as per manual.
see the pics below for reference.

Can I adjust ride height using the push rods or is that adjustment used for something else? What will adding a 1mm shim under the rocker ball studs do?
Thanks, fat

Mark,

Can you shorten that link so it will effectively require a longer shock ?

Fat,

In your pics I see o-rings on the ball studs your front shocks attach to. I assume you're trying to take any slack out of the front suspension? Does it get you more responsive steering?

blue, some peeps do that to keep the shocks from moving around the ball stud so much and yea it does take some slop out, but as far as the way it reacts i dont know i like all my linkages to be as free as possible without any slop and i dont use orings on my shocks cause it binds it a little...

Lengthen the rods to gain some ride height.

called tamiya today they said ride height is adjusted by adjusting the length of the pushrods so i went down to 11mm per one of the techs who races a tb03 also and now I can dial in as low as 3mm and up to 6mm. I am at 5 now. Thanks for all the help on this fourm.
Now let go race

@ bluesxmax....I use the orings to keep the shocks from floating on the ball studs. I use very soft ones so they do not bind. The hard ones will bind(blk and orange tamiya ones so i use GS racing blus silicone. They are like butter in the shocks too

thats a painful way of doing it. i use the shock collars to adjust ride height. but then again.. i always keep the front at 5mm so i rarely adjust it
