Default Hot Bodies D8 Front Shock Modification Problem

Hi,

I wanted to get some more front droop on my hot bodies d8 so I tried the long 112 mm shocks first. It made the droop a lot better but it also made the front very stiff and I couldn't make the front of the buggy touch the ground when I pushed on the shock tower. I then tried using the standard shocks with the long d8t shock ends. It made it bait better but still very stiff. What would you recommend?

I assume your using the stock shock tower? If you go back to the stock buggy shocks and use the long ends on Losi front shock shafts you will gain all the droop you're going to need. If the shocks are stiff, you are more than likely using to thick of oil and spring combo.
