It broke in the lower section, across the hub, the front lower quater came apart right around the hinge pin, and it cracked right up under the mud scaper thing mount. Perhaps aluminum is avaliable from somewhere?

the new shocks will not give you more drop unless you grind down the arm where it hits the chassis. the new chassis that is out i was told will let you get more drop also

or just grind/dremel the chassis where the arm hit..
btw more rear toe out and more anti squat plate will automatically make more droop isn't it..

You have to read that article with a grain of salt - all those cars (except maybe the GS) are top notch.

droop is how far the arm travels down so the only way to get more droop is to grind the chassis or the arm. i would not grind the chassis because you will not be able to take droop out if you want

only a little grind on chassis and u can got a lot of more droop... no issue if u want to use down travel limit screw once again.. instead the limit screw will sit much better on the chassis cause the chassis face where u grind is now parallel with the arm something like this \\.. before it look like this _\

They are all top notch racers and why they were tested together to find out which we thought was the toppest notch of the notches.

ok the buggy is basically done and ready to go
just visually looking at the steering throw
the buggy doesnt seem to have a wide range ofmotion
i have my endpoints maxed out as far as it allows and it just doesnt look
like it has more steering throw than my hyper7 c hub did
i am using an airtronics 94358 for steering, buggy has been set up on a HUDY system and it just visually doesnt seem good
middle hole on ackerman plate...might move it to the hole toward rear of buggy and see if that helps
it has the B plate on in the front for caster too

should i be worried???
