Hi Guys,

I finally got the rayspeed springs listed online. We have all the tension right now except for yellow. Also, we are working on the Tobee parts, which we should have in about 1-2 weeks, so you guys no longer have to go overseas to get these hop-ups. Price should be the same as price in Japan.

With the rear shock tower on the front, you have to run the short shock ends. Set you shock length to 62.5mm and you should be able to get good ride height and droop.

I will make sure the shocks are at 62.5mm, but I dont know what's up with the rear of the car. I am running the far outside hole on the shock tower, so it is a lower hole, but I still think I should be able to get lower than 5.5mm ride height, if the car is loose in the rear I am going to have to deal with changing springs rather than just lowering it. Dont know why I am having all of these ride-height issues.

My 1-way, and CF shaft should be here sometime today, can't wait

I was also thinking, has anyone tried cutting the center part out of the upper deck, right after the steering posts, and motor plate? It flexes much more than the chassis stiffener, so it might give a little less flex than removing the stiffener, just thinking, if removing the stiffener gives too much flex, cutting the upper deck might be good for a "middle" feeling.

I'll try and post some closeup pictures of the front and rear of my car tonight. Maybe you'll see something that is different on your car. Are you using Yokomo springs, AE or Rayspeed? I currently have the Rayspeed springs on my car.

Mo...

did you have to change the shock end and spring cup to AE's?

How 'bout Rayspeed Bladders...have you tried them yet?

Isaac, the rear shock tower on the front seems to give the car more steering.

rc-zombies: Yes, I am using associated spring cups. for the shock ends, I am using standard Yokomo ballcups and I put Yokomo ball studs in the arms.

What is the lowest ride height you guys are getting on the rear end using the stock stuff with the lower holes in the shock tower?
