woa man, you missed the boat, train and aircraft carrier on that one. I didn't ask who is the guy who wheeled his teammate out of the way for the win, did I? That would be the aforemetioned. I wondered about the guy pitting with you.

Have a stressful weekend? Relax a bit. I heard your cars worked well.

we had a good week, no stress at all...

You did not make your self very clear. Why didn't you just ask who was the losi guy who roomed with us who did well? Instead you ask a loaded question that ended up not making sense.

Craig Ward is his name, lives in Utah and races weekly with our guy Tony Newland.

Have I landed on the boat now???

yeah right on, thanks. I guess all those keyboard commandos have got people all edgey on the internet. Didn't mean to load my question?? Sometimes things ARE face value. Drink some water, and take some deep breaths bro, no worries. That week away from home is rough sometimes.

So, I'm putting the EVO kit on the KAOS that I just got and have a question...

With the longer front shocks, I backed off the droop. The problem is with that angle the hubs are rubbing on the shafts of the Pivotballs causing really bad binding.

So, I put droop limiting back into the front arms. Well, by the time I got it so there was not binding, it doesn't appear I have more travel than I did with the original shocks....

Did I miss something here? Do I mod(grind) the edges of the hubs where the PB enters to allow more travel?

Just doesn't seem to make sense that we'd get longer shocks yet have to limit them to the same amount of travel as the originals...

Again, I have no instructions so, if it said to modify the PB Hubs, I missed that....

Hey Alan,

I think you answered my question So, the new, longer shocks gives us a few more millimeters, not like another 1" of travel. Cool... I think the original suspension worked very well. Couldn't really imagine improving on the original...

I think I'm okay, I still take and send pics!

Thanks....

Art - most of the gains in travel are uptravel. The added droop doesnt matter, just run the same droop you did before.

Guys I have 2.2 - 2.9 front sway bars coming and 2.6-3.2 rear sway
bars coming in.

We also have the new Alum rear uprights coming as well. Not to mention
another big order of buggies!

We are working on the arm mold for the truggy and a couple more small
details. As soon as I have a concrete date I will let everyone know.
This way we spare the trouble of a new date every few weeks. It's
coming and it's coming soon...just be patient

Big Bore w/clips....

Threaded is okay, but it takes a bit longer to adjust and to adjust so they are matching pairs...
