Brad just use whatever youre used to using... as I'm sure that you can get either brand to work on that car.


Whatever differences there are between the shocks, it's negligible. If you've got a full set of Assoc. springs...put em on and run em!

I just got a SRD and I'm having some problems on it. I bought the chassis kit used (new never used.. ) I did not get any instructions with the car, The rear CVD's (stock TC4) are to short..I am using the Losi hubs all the way around ( ) Do I also need to take any material off the front C carrier..The turnbuckles seem to bind. I am also using Tamiya shocks, The car is just not going together very well..I'm assuming it's me just not knowing what "parts" I should be using.. ..Stephen..Help.. If you can I need a rubber tire set up if you have one.

I have used irs big dawgs, stock tc3, and aluminum tc3 bones with no problem. any of those should work. tc4 bones should work as well.

the width of the car overall is the same the lower mounts are wider (more spaced out) and the arms are shorter. It may be a shimming problem you might take a pic to show us what you are talking about to be sure.

you have to cut off the ball cups. I assume you got the really short turnbuckles with the kit you bought. short lunsford ones?

the only thing I do to the front c hubs is grind a little of the c hub so it clears the bottom end spring retainer from the shock.

I'm running losi jrxs shocks on mine so I'm not sure what you'd have to do to the shocks... that stephen would have to answer.

if you could shoot either one of us a pic of your problems it would be easier to help you out.

Michael

Mike pretty much cleared up your questions as far as turnbuckles and cvd's go. I have used tc4 bones completely fine. The only problem I can see is that you may be running an offset losi rear hub. You must run regular hubs otherwise the offset rear hubs will make the rear bones too short. I am running JRXS shocks and Assoc shocks on my cars. If you have a problem beyond grinding away a little material off of the castor block shoot us a picture and we can try to trouble shoot from there with the tamiya shocks.

I don't think I'm running an offset Losi hub, It's the 0 deg. XXXS hub, Took it right off my TC4 along with the Tamiya shocks..Everything "should" work but it's not..I'll try to take some photos. Did this kit ever come with any instructions?

The 0 degrees come in offset and regular, see if you can look at a regular hub and compare the bearing locations.

The bones do ride on the very outside edge of the diffs... it looks like the bones might be too short but that how it was designed

Thanks for that picture Jim. If they do not fit into the diffs at all, I will need to see a picture and will try to help you as best I can. The car was designed to fir the dogbones a little short, but they have never popped out on me in a race.
