Thanks!!!! That would help. I'm going to try my work computer to see if I can get it to align better than at my house. Maybe that will work.

but i come round to doing the front, i set it to (well attempt to) 5.5mm but even with the shock collars all the way up, it is still 6mm+..that isn't the problem but the problem is that evening having 6mm+ ride height the shocks have no movement at all..they have about 1mm movement on left and right (only on the front)....

i hope it made sense and i was wondering if anyone else has had this problem before..if so is there a cure to it?

thanks
Matt
Hmm I don't seem to have that problem on mine. Only thing I can think of is make sure you don't have spacers in the shocks, the right ends on the bottoms of the shocks, or the right shock shafts and shock bodies on. I know my R2 has a little longer shock in the rear than the front.

I did notice that the car has alot of travel. I will take a close up of the front of my car as it might help you some.

i wonder if the shocks are backwards... I know that they are different lengths. which ones you have on the rear? or, you might post a pic if you can get one...

you certainly shouldnt have that problem, I suggest you make sure you've built your shocks correctly and put them on the right end of the car.

Ended up putting a 8x10x0.3mm shim prior to installing the inner 6x10 bearing. It's the same shim that I use to shim the bevel gears. Miight work in your case.
Thanks, I will give that a shot as well.

I am actually running the Speedway Pal hubs, but now that I think about it, the bearings were not an extremely tight fit. I will try shimming the bearing inside the hub.

thanks for the info.

i just looked at my car and i did have longer shocks on the front..so i switched them with the rears and now the front is fine..5.5mm and plenty of shock travel.

but now the problem has gone to the rear LOL....i am thinking i got the wrong shock ends on (long ones)...am i meant to have the shorter ones on?

i probably made a simple mistake but it is hard trying to read japenese..or try and work out what the not so good pics mean

thanks
Matt

You will need the short ends on the rear shocks just like the front ones.

DOH!
It's also an idea to get some short shock bodies, the same as the front ones and fit them to the rear. Otherwise you can still get a bit of limited compression at the rear. It's kind of puzzling why Alex Racing decided to bother with long shock bodies on the rear

hey, i;m a 15 yr old brit..i;ve got a decent excuse

i seen a lot of people fit yokomo shocks, or tamiya ones (they are pricey though)

is it actually worth getting different shocks to standard though?

don't want to be splashing out on things i don't need.
