Glad you all are helping each other out And fat, once you get the pushrods set to your liking, adjust your height with the shock collars it is a lot faster Oh and about the pushrod length, be careful with the lengths, you need to check that you are still able to run the amount of droop in the front without preloading the shocks. Hard to explain on here what I mean, but study the front end closely and check things out with the shocks disconnected as well. Long story short, I helped someone out with a TA05 IFS once that had their front end all out of whack, his car had Tamiya yellow springs up front, but it felt like he had whites on instead His lengths for shocks, pushrods were all screwed up and was running his droop screws in so far that his chassis was bent out where they touched the chassis So just check things out for binding, and your good

Got the pushrods adjusted correctly so now I can use the shock collars to adjust Rh up or down. Drive train is so free
Part of my problem was that the white springs you see in my previous pics were not tamiya springs I thought they were but when i measured them against a new set of tamiya tuned springs they were a slightly smaller guage steel and 2mm longer than the tamiya springs. Then I remerbed they were old HPI springs I had in my box from my pro 2 days. So that is the main reason I could get the Rh fixed the first time around. Damn sneaky hpi springs. I guess they were jealous
I will update the thread as to the car as i race it

SSG! Nice! I just hope they do not do a SSG Yokomo BD5. That would suck for me big time. I might have to skip a semester of college if they did! haha.

Am right to believe there is only one car in the TB03 range that doesn't come with the inboard front suspension (Amemiya Mazda)? Or do all the kits have all the parts and you just pick and choose?

Have you tried disconnecting the motor from the spur gear and spinning the wheels by themselves? How'd you shim the gear boxes? Are you using any sort of drag brake setting through your electronics?
