Can someone explain Droop and adjusting it?
 
I don't understand droop or how to adjust it.. Youtube has no real videos to explain it.. I know it's probably a dumb question but I've gotta ask it.

It is the amount of down travel the suspension has from ride height. In 1/10th scale it is usually adjusted by shims on the shock shaft that are inside the shock body, and underneath the piston. Some 1/10th scale cars, and almost all 1/8th scale cars use droop screws. They are screws positioned so that as you tighten them, the a-arm has less down travel.

Droop is a very effective adjustment for how much weight a car transfers.

Also for 10th scale you can change the shock end. Kyosho has short, medium and long.

So 10th scale cars' downtravel limiter is generally the length of the shock?

That is a fairly accurate statement. I think the Durango stuff has droop screws.

Lower suspension arms toward the inside.
