ahhh gotcha, you are measuring the shocks while they are on the car I always measure when I build to make sure they are same length as not to create tweak. Makes sense to measure on the car and adjust the screws….Just not used to have droop screws on my older cars. I took a long break!

I've also noticed the car likes a lower ride height makes it easier to drive as you said less body roll. Seems the trade off is more chassis slap on larger jumps.

Chassis slap can be corrected by pack, to certain point. As mentioned earlier 1.6x2 front and 1.7x2 or 1.5x3 rear seems to work pretty good. I run slightly smaller holes on my v5 because it a tad heavier. I'm working on a v5.2 as we speak....

Are you kidding me? You're designs, machining and attention to detail are dialed. If you make another update, count me in.

@Bman: Do you use any design software ? Pro Engineer? Solidworks etc? Have you experimented with 3D Printing ?

Yes AutoDesk Inventor. 3d printing intrigues the hell out of me, but just haven't dove in yet. If I can find someone on here I may be able further my vision........Test your car yet with the new changes?

Yes, that's the easy part. Making $$$ is the hard part. Everyone wants everything for nothing, including myself. That's why I do it for a hobby and if possible help a few others enjoy my advances in the process. Stay tuned!

I'm also researching 3D printers like crazy. I've heard there are quite a few RC designs done this way. Shumacher apparently is doing a lot. Especially now that we are reaching the SLA and other ways of doing carbon fiber and other materials besides the classic materials from the early 3D printers. I've also looked into the Grizzly machines for milling and lathe work. (they are great converts for CNC). What do you do for a living?

Thanks for the link, very interesting. Keep me posted if you know someone that buys one of these. My title is Design Engineer for Technical Services. I started out as an Eyelet Toolmaker (Deep Draw/metal stamping) and worked my way through the system. I can do from design to finish product. You?

Have a V4 on the way and looking for a good Indoor High Bite clay setup. Going to try and stay as box stock for the time being as I get used to the car (coming from an XB4). Usually I just stick to kit setups, but for Durango cars I usually want to try out one track tested setup and tune from there.

Thanks.

Had spare v5 chassis setup and a backup car to play with. So I decided to work on a v5.2 What do you guys think? Got the idea from the D413 layout. Just mocked up the layout for know, then to put it to the test after a few items arrive....
