The RC8 does have a fair amount of suspension travel, but the stock shocks cause them to rebound too quickly for my feeling and causing too much of a kick effect. By using bladerless shocks, this problem is resolved and the RC8 can handle the amount of travel much better without causing issues.

Ive had mine since November and have been loving it. Ive put about 2 gallons on it and everything is holding up great. I have broken a couple things and bent some hinge pins but the only time I DNF was a wheel nut coming off. My car still feels pretty tight to me and the drivetrain looks nearly new. I think the handling is great and its very adjustable. The factory is sending out free packs of updated parts and will even exchange the old arms for the new arms if you send them back unopened. The design may seem typical at first glance but the more you get to know it the more innovative stuff you will find. The team has been online frequently with helpfull tips and set-ups. And the car and the parts are near or are the least expensive on the market. What else can you ask for? I for one am a happy customer.
