For a definitive answer to your question, you would need to indicate which low/mid/high inner pivot supports (low, mid or high) and how you mounted the front (0F/4F or 2F) and rear (0R/4R or 2R) outer blocks for both ends of the car.

Good news is that after you play with the inside shock limiters a few times, it becomes pretty obvious as to what to use for your various setups. FYI...Low roll center setups tend to use about half the inner spacers of a high roll center setup.

You also have about 2+ full turns of the ball cups on the shock shafts to play with for fine tuning. So if you get into the right zone with the spacers, you should be able to adjust the droop from 2-5mm without having to open the shocks change the spacers

If you cut the LOSA5050 shock spacers into a "C" shape (using a Dremel or plastic snippers), it makes the process of inserting and removing them WAAAAAAAAAAAY EASIER.

Default Mounting a Novak GT7

Just wondering how those of you running a GT7 in your xxxs mount the capacitor. There's not enough room to mount it on the side of the ESC, so where do you put it?

I'm torn between buying the GT7 or the LRP QC2.

Kind of hard to see because of the black case, but there's plenty of room to mount the capacitor on the side. Just mount the switch on top.

I mount it behind the motor, I have the capacitor mounted on one end and the switch on the other with no problems. I have also had the same setup in front of the motor.

I think I got it right with the droop but when I set the ride height I have to crank down the shock collar all the way and it still is at 4.5mm so I moved the ball cups a little but then it wuz set at 2mm of droop in the front and 3 in the back.
