After seeing those pics it just looks like they are correcting the problem with running rear mounted shocks that the car has right now. When running front mounted shocks, the shocks are perfectly perpendicular to the arms as they should be. Running them in rear mount however, the shocks lean forwards which causes a little bit of bind but uneven wear on the shock shafts. We learned about this problem on the old JRX's after the H-arm setup came out. I've spaced my shocks out as much as possible when rear mounted but the stock screws aren't long enough to fully correct it. I generally prefer front mounted shocks though.

Has anybody else had issues with the shocks not bleeding out of the shock caps right ? I know it was a pain for me . I needed to add two drops of oil in the cap to get them to bleed out of the hole and having the shock at a angle when bleeding them. No blurs or anything in the shock or the bleeder hole.


I got them done now though and mounted but man it took more than a few things to get them right.

Default Stronger Suspension Arms for Racing

Just a quick post. We are developing stronger arms intended for those that push their cars to the limit or just have bad luck breaking them during a race.

Don't want to clutter this thread so post your feedback on this one

Please make a locking outer king pin like the 22 has to reduce the spreading of the fork at the hub. Thats where i have been breaking pins and arms.

First time driving racing this buggy today which was on carpet. Wow it jumps good and pretty quick rotates fast to !

Ate up the guys with the B5 Mid motors. I do need to go up in the Rear shocks on the oil like 30w/30w the 27.5 w is to light in the Rear shocks on high traction its a lot of body roll. And i did try to drive it different ways with the Mid motor point and shoot and staying on the throttle seem like on the track i was on which was a small tight track point and shoot was better.

With the Droop what mm do you guys use on High traction ? Cant be full droop.

I use full droop in the rear but for the front I tune my droop for more or less on power steering.

Ok thanks. So full Droop on the Rear on high traction ? I guess that's so you get more push out of corners ?

On High traction i was thinking that less downtravel all around was better.

I know i need to go up in the shock oil on the Rear shocks to 30w . Il take a look at that Hobby Pro sway bar kit for the rear .

I've tried less droop in the rear ( I also run on carpet ) and it always took away to much initial and mid corner steering. One thing that's helped add steering all around was moving the rear hubs all the way back.

The EOS rear mounted shock mod looks interesting. Perhaps Fred is right and this is how they are correcting for the "tilt" caused when using rear mounted shocks. I've also noticed that when using front mounted shocks in mid motor you can only use the top two mounting locations because of the motor plate.

I was looking at some Electronic setups in this buggy with the Mid Motor. notice that some have the ESC on the Right side and the Rx on the Left side . Im running a Full size stick pack by the way for now anyways.

I have my ESC mounted on the Left and the RX on the Right.

Im thinking of putting the RX on the Left and the ESC on the Right it just seems that its less pull on the motor wires and neater for sure .

That's the configuration I run in my MM4 DEST210R.

I also went from stick pack to shorty I was getting to much front end push and it was even a little nose heavy. I went to shorty and moved it around till I got the best compromise between steering and traction.

I would recommend going to a shorty on your buggy to tune it better and reduce weight.
