If you are running a rear tower up front and using the inside arm holes this happens, if it is, you have to use the outside hole on the arm.

Griffin,

You can also cut the ball end down some on the bottom of the shock. Basically the part that threads onto the shock shaft needs to be trimmed about 2mm, this allows the spring perch to sit lower which lowers the ride height.

Check this out guys, I just got my new Diggity Designs driveshaft/input system in my car...it's SOOOO light...easily takes off half the weight of the stock system. It also frees up the car and it is wayyyy quieter. I'm testing it this weekend, should have MAD rip. It's been tested for weeks in stock/19t/mod and held up just fine.

LOL. To me, it seems that too many people don't search, and post threads about things already discussed in previous threads, and bumps this thread to the second page.

HPI also makes bladders for shocks.(Just to let you guys know)

Heres my TC3 its a team with a few bits and bobs added. Recently i finished up 8th out of 76 in the Ellesmere Port Winter Classic stock class. It was my first proper attempt at a competition so im pretty happy with the result. Im thinking about switching to composite dogbones to reduce the rotating mass but im not sure about strength if i want to use a one way, could go through a lot of them. Next update is perhaps cutting the chassis to move the batterys in which will require me soldering battery bars and moving my corrally connectors ontop of the cells which is no biggy. Thinking about getting a Revolution (V2) 10 single but not sure between the Hara and standard modified black endbell.

do the HPI bladders fit in the associated shocks? Would you have to remove the rubber o-ring from the assoc shock to make them fit?
