I installed it in the shock body. How do you smoothen out the action?
Thanks.

As above sand them down a bit and you will be fine. I suggest you grab one shock with all the guides assembled in the lower half, add just a touch of oil to one shock shaft, then use it to test out each piston making sure it moves up and down freely. You only have to do this once and it will be sweet from then on.

Got a new item to play with today from Mr FlyingFoxRC.. Should see an end to many problems associated with the poor materials of the kit outdrives....

Depending on your qaulity of driving they.can strip. It was probably never a problem with the original diff.design, which leaves alot to be desired too...

If that is total suspension travel then yes it seems to be a fair bit too much. I normally run 1-2mm droop at the front and 2-3mm droop at the rear (over ride height). You seem to be running 4-5mm front and rear.
