Questions?? Mugen MBX6 Droop and Ride Height?

I have had my X6 for about 1 week and my 1st run was at the Fall Brawl at the Badlands. My question is setting the droop. In the manual it is illustrated by setting the chassis on a 2 rims. The way I was showen to measure droop by measuring shock length, is this the wrong way?

What about measuring ride height?

Can someone please tell me the most common way to measure droop, and ride height of my X6.

If everyone is placing the buggy on a rim I assume the stock rim that cam with the kit is correct? What is the distance the chassis should be off the ground?

What is the proper front and rear ride height and where is everyone measuring it?

Thanks
Robb

LOVIN MY MUGEN!!!

Either way is the correct way of measuring droop. When looking at setup sheets people use both ways so make sure your measuring the same way. As far as ride height most use a ride height gauge or a digital caliper to measure it, compress the suspension and let it rebound on it's own and then take a measurement in the middle of the chassis from the flatest part, ie not where the chassis kicks up in front slightly. As far as proper ride height many start of with bones slightly higher than level in front and the rear level, but it varies from track to track so there is no set rule.

Default ride height

For example what is the ride height that your running and what set-up are you running?
