You have the D8 or D8T? Let me know if you need help on the setup. As for building tips, what I did was cut a extra hole on the radio box to run the wires across easier. If you guys have coffee session let me know, maybe I can join you guys and show you how I do it.

Joe, my fren got the D8 buggy...

During the build, i realize that the 4 shock are the lenght... If i lift up the rear up and drop it, it will hit the chassis, any suggestion?

Cable issue not tat much... Haha...

Yes, the 4 shocks are of the same length. If the rear hit the chassis, usually the damping is too soft, which shock piston and oil did you used?
