Would you go heavier on the oil or stiffen anything up if running 17.5 blinky?

the optional arms made the car have a ton more initial steering. was harder to hang on to for sure but really cut in well.

I wouldnt, i would just start with a less agressive camber setting and 4deg caster to calm the car down for starters and see from their if you need more steering.

Thanks

Hey Paul, to be straight up, I am HORRIBLE at building my shocks. I'm good at filling with no air and tightening the cap, but then to achieve 25% or less, maybe 10% or 0 rebound, I just cannot achieve that without getting air in my shocks. Is there a special way with the xray shocks that you recommend building them without any air in them? They seem to settle out and with the bleeder caps, end up with no air after sitting for 24hrs, but I'm not sure if that is even possible. Thanks for any advice. Chad

Hi Chad, lol. If your not getting any air you are doing something right.
2 things to do if you are not already. First when you put the bladder on try pushing the piston up almost to the serface of the oil before installing the bladder. Second, make sure you push down slightly on the bladder to extend it in to the oil as far as possilble before putting the cap on. Also do not use the foam in the cap. Doing those things should bring the rebound to a minimum and make bleeding possibly net even nessissary.

Thanks

Chad as we found out this weekend if u over tighten the cap on the bladder it can rip and soon as u run car air is back in shock and is very noticeable on high bite track .
I rolled the bladder in my finger tips to see the rip ....
