If you have the problem at low speed, I would check your car to make sure the arms drop freely and the shocks are not binding up and sticking. Everything should move freely. Also do not know how your roll centers are, so a setup sheet of your setup would help more. Make sure the arms move freely with no force applied. Also on the setup you have posted so far the only thing I would says is a little thicker rear diff oil, but I bet you have something not right. Also that body has lots of steering.

Everything is free and moving easily, no binding anywhere at all. Will try a different shell and see how it goes.

Kit/Box setup with Hpi Silvers should be super easy to drive
Oils, shims, CG, RC, WB, everything

50% reb is too firm
20% is what you are looking for

The BD7 is very sensitive to changes
It's possible you have something tuned too aggressive in your setup
And that body isn't doing you any favours, get a LW Speed 6, or LTCR if you need more rotation

I always go back to kit setup if something doesn't feel right, it's lazy, but works great on asphault

So far I've tried putting some shock oil and grease on the threads though it hasn't really helped. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this/ got any suggestions on how to help out.

Just on this guys does anone know if the thread on the composite shock body is the same as the aliminium ones? I guess if they are the ai shock collars could be a solution

Cheers
Dan

Nearly kit settings, and very close to what I used on Med grip carpet
