Ive just about finished building the kit, it was a nice build. Only complaint is the slop on the inner hinge pins.....the arms wiggle there both front and rear. Otherwise it is a top quality kit, on par with the best!

Im going to use the stock shocks for now, I got lost in the posts about the limiters. Do the shocks need them both front and rear? 2-3mm spacer on shaft on the outside? Id like to finish it tonite, thanks for the replys

Front and rear need limiting. I would do at least 3mm, but check by compressing the a-arm to see if the cvd catches on the diff cup.

Where are the springs everyone use with the big bores 12mm shocks.

Thanks.

Kyosho BB springs and Losi 22 springs sets will fit.

I think I will go with the new associated springs, they are sold separatly or in sets, and use different cup offsets/heights, springs are universal, 1 length fits buggy or truck with appropriate cup offset.
Not trying to fly the asc flag here, just thought this is nice setup.

In the past AE has a rep for having inaccurate spring rates, this holds true to this day. I run AE springs on my E buggy and had to buy two sets of them to get a perfect match. one of the reasons why Kyosho springs are the best thus the most expensive. just my 2 cents

Probably so but AVID is even making springs for AE vehicles and that makes you wonder I always say go with what is working and right now that is Losi springs!! With that being said i have to buy a set of the AE shocks in order to make pistons for them so we will see soon enough how accurate they are.

shocks aren't cheap, and the stock ones are pretty nicely made. I don't see many points going to others.

I use losi 22 springs.
22b rear spring in the front (orange, red, maybe pink or yellow when you add weight to the rear), never tried orange yet, nor the silver one.
22t rear spring in the rear (grey, white should be good) I found white already a bit too hard creating nose dives.

*pink with grey rear with 84g rear weight is just fine for me.
*red with white should work similar, and overall harder.
*going to try red and white later, maybe even with less rear weight.

---------
also, I use losi shock pistons. They told me to


---------
also, the front shock shaft is quite a bit too short.
especially considering you need travel limiter on it (I have 4-5mm on to prevent the flex on arm)
even positioned in both the inner hole on the tower, and the inner hole on the arm. The front is still not extending long enough.
this is when shock is at max travel, the arm angle is...


Stock shock shaft in the front is 44.5mm, and I'm thinking about something at around 49mm.
with the travel limiter, it's safe when max compressed.
and it provides 5mm more travel for both adjustablity option and grip.

Searched around amain, found a axial 3x50mm shock shaft, same c-clip style. though axial style, not cheap in anyways.
kyosho also have a 50mm shock shaft for their 1/10 (ZX5, etc), but not sure if it's 3mm.
*losi use 3.5mm shock shafts, won't work.

Someone posted on the first few pages about a traxxas shock shaft that works.

Some info here:
To get more droop, traxxas slash 4x4 front TiNi shafts add 2mm more droop part# 1664T
Also, traxxas 39mm aluminum links work for the steering and front camber links, and the 59mm links work well for the rear.

Right.

I did the 3 turns on the eyelet. Inside hole on tower / inside hole on arm.
