Default 110mm shocks too long for scx10 ii help.

So I've ordered some 110mm shocks. It seems that the Panhard bar and the steering link makes the front axal shift to the side when it is extended. Does anybody have a simple fix for this. Thank

Send them back and get the right size shocks. 90-95mm or so.

You can lengthen the panhard/steering links, but that setup does not lend itself well to a suspension lift.

It's the same problem one would have when lifting a 1:1 with a solid front axle and Panhard/track bar. Either lengthen it, or stay closer to the stock ride height.

This.

110mm shocks are way too long for an scx10.

Not a fan of the jacked scx10 look. If you are going taller go to a 4 link front because the panhard will create havoc on articulation.

Best of luck, its difficult to achieve. There are a couple axle mounted servo brackets for ar44's, but they both need very funky drag link setups with the servo horn facing upwards instead of the normal downwards.
