Now I have a few questions:
Did u drill more than one hole on the shock piston?
is it better to use softer suspension spring like replace the yellow with purple spring for the front for easy control on turning?
Need to do some setting on my remote control setting on the throttle and servos curves...is it better to have less sensitive on both throttle and steering servos?
Anyone tried removing the rear anti-roll bar at all?
