Default Shock oil setting

Anyone care to share with me your shock oil settings for front and back for your 777?

I'm currently using 50 front and 45 rear with the same medium springs setting on front and back. The problem I find is that the front sinks more than the rear when I drop the car on a level plane.

Finally the silence has been broken. Nice! Race ready buggy! There's a new skid plate to put on our chassis on Ebay check it out.
additional weight huh?

you know i have the same Kfactory hinge pins as yours. one thing good about eclips is that they are lighter yet possible to snap out on crashes.


How are the others? where are their photos?

i was reffering to other kyosho buggy owners. just like to see how they mod or upgrade their buggies to make it lighter/faster.

How does a complete set (frt/rear) of big bore shocks cost? did you find a store where you can buy both of them? i mean both frt and rear set.

ahhhh, gotcha the rear big bore kits and rear lime green springs seem to be backordered everywhere...........you buy everything seperate, would have been nice to buy it all in one kit, oh well

I think its somewhere around $200 for shocks, standoffs, springs, and front unis.

I personally would'nt recommend Dragon Racing components, I have never personally used them, but have only heard bad things.

I talk to Dave (Paradoxmaker) on a regular basis and he convinced me to not buy their parts. Also Trevor I know you used to have the Jammin and how did it compare to your Kyosho I'm looking at Kyosho and Mugen right now as far as brands to buy

I wrote to them before to request for specification and they don't have it. They only said parts can be fitted on 777. So I skipped getting anything from them
