Order some chrispins now
see front page for details.
I ran three batts and there was definitely wear.
Yea I ordered them yesterday... Can't wait to get them in then I will rebuild everything with correct diff oils.

Those who are trying to figure out the grease i have found using "Marine Grease" works well.

Or at least an oil equivalent to the grease?

Can anyone with a close to new truck measure the length of the rear shocks when fully extended? I just noticed I have some massive down-travel, I'd like to put it back to stock. Maybe my droop screws have etched into the chassis? I can't see that they would back out.
Maybe Ryan can get them to package the stock grease but most of us have moved on to the tunability of silicone diff oil. I know the grease works well though as I have driven out of the box cars and they are pretty good.

We have been running the rear shocks right around 100mm (measure screw center to screw center)

Front shocks full droop with the eyelets unscrewed 2 full turns.

Ryan mentioned Kyosho makes them.

Nice. Love the red, black, and yellow with the skulls.

Where in Kissimmee do you run? My family is from there and when I go back to visit, it would be nice to know where the closest track is.

Default better shocks?

was cleaning up the truck and all, decided to do the front droop thing. but found the shock shafts to be corroded i know its a matter of time b4 i need to replace the shafts or shocks..
any options for better shocks for the truck, hopefully with Ti-Nitride Coated Shock Shafts dat can work with this truck? Proline powerstroke?

thanx

I know you're a team driver.. but the integy carbon towers (front/rear) have an extra row (lower) adding more droop when wanted w/o backing off the eyelets..

Just a thought ;P They have held up like champs so far.

Our testing has shown 2 turns to be about the max you want to unscrew and there is plenty of thread on the shaft to do that. Not sure if lowering the whole shock on the tower would be too much? You can give it a try.

chiatw73-- That is pretty odd to have shafts rust? Especially if you have been driving the car. Some guys have been experimenting with 8ight shocks and other 8th scale shocks but most of us have had really good luck with the stock shocks which perform really well IMO. They have not leaked and with the tuning pistons we are getting them dialed in. Ryan and the team are working on some new springs as well for better handling and more tuning options.

Yep. The droop screw does not touch the chassis and we unscrew the shocks to make them longer!
