Out of the box it's a great car, then it's easy to tune to what you want.

I've been having a little trouble with my shocks.. When I set the droop at 5 or more (6 highest I've ever gone) it feels like the front of the car in very springy when I push down on the car to settle the shocks and not smooth like the rear ( feels like one of those cheap RTR cars).. If I loosen the droop screw a little it starts to feel the way it should, I went back to screw being 2mm between the bottom of the arm and chassis like it says in the manual and the same thing.. Can it be that I'm setting it with the ride height to high or is it the order that I'm setting up the car

5-5.2 or 5 front and rear never higher than 5.5 I feel like I'm setting the droop or down stops with the shock collars too low should turn them tighter to the top or lower the ride height before setting it or what order should I make changes

Under the screw that keep the pin in up front and under the arm in the rear.
It happened to me before and just started over and it was fine but just was thinking I was doing something wrong, I was messing with it just now cause it was bothering me and its fine..
All I did was redo the droop and set camber to 1.5 and it dropped the car .5 and its fine, I guess it had positive camber since I went to the shortest links while messing with it the other day but haven't ran it since so didn't even check the camber but when I did it lowered the car.. I always put a different setup at home so I don't have to do it at the track and if it doesn't work for me I have the time to go back to where it was before

Your supposed to measure from under the arms only! If you measure from C-hubs or anywhere else droop will be way off and thats why it seems tight!

Ok that makes sense, that's probably why 6 felt like there was no up travel when there should be at least 1-2mm..
Can someone post a pic where to measure from? When you get a chance, thanks

Different type of gauge, but the same idea;



And when you measure ride height, do it under both sides of the chassis near to where the droop screws are.
