Hello guys my name is Norman and I just picked up a jammin fte of ebay..
I have been reading all the setups of the factory team drivers(Chad Bradley's)
and most of them say they use the short shock end in the rear.The manual shows that you should use the long shock ends in the rear shocks.
So my question is What is the diference between short and long shock ends in the rear??? What will it change in performance of the car??? Right now I have the short ones and it seems to me that I have to dial a lot of preload to get the cars right to (arms leveled).
Any info will be apreciated.
thanks
Norman

Norman last i heard they were using the long shock ends in the front and rear.
Gives you more droop which gives you better traction on rough tracks.
I haven't tried it yet but will soon.

norman

the manuel does show to install the long shock end, but after the silver state race they found that by putting short end on the front that it helped reduce rear squat on upon acceleration, keeping more wight up front. this will also increas stearing on power because the front end does not raise as much. puting short ends on the rear will just the opposite, they dont let the back end lift which reduces wight to the front upon breaking, which would reduce stearing going into the corner. but short end in front and rear i think gives the car a more free overall feel, kind of a loose fell

OK I think I go it!! Having the short shock ends all around makes scence in having a more planted car in the track.
Thanks for the info guys I will post after I racing in the weekend

thats pretty good info there. thanks.
from my gp/ep on-road experience.. the less the chassis rock(front-to-rear), the better the accelaration, pickup & stopping without disturbing the driving rythm. something like that.
but offroad of coz different. im new at this.

Short shock ends will only give more up travel . The droop is the same as they have the same amount of thread. Long ends only have more plastic above the thread. Hope that makes sense..
