Just had a play with soem old pro4 shocks and some old xray adjustable pistons and shafts, they fit and you still get heaps of down travel. I am going to use xray orings and make up some special spacers to go in the end of the shock body to seal it as the xray shafts are bigger. Internally adjustable pistons hooray. Once I work out what size to make the spacers I will post the dimensions as this would be a worthwhile mod to do to any car.

yeah actually i had to sand my graphite bulkheads to get everything to align right

just saying that AL is heavier than graphite, so what you may gain in drivetrain and bling you will prolly lose in handling.

actually nowadays bling isnt where its at for me, lowest possible cg IS where its at
then again i gaurantee my wiring is cleaner than anyones!!! maybe i should take pics to backup my claim eh?

no working on oval for the practice, and getting new cvd bones guess im gonna have to go tc3 shiny or something cuz my hpi alum wear out WAY WAY too quickly, esp at 20 per pair im not really concerned about it tho, i switched to composite in the back so that might offset the steel weight.

27 nice man

prolly this coming friday i'll be there.

and yeah i'll take pics soon prolly tomorow

Pro4 did me well today. I ran stock with some very stiff competition. Top 5 guys qualified within about 5 seconds from each other. TQ was only 3 tenths faster than 5th for the fast lap. My car was strong in the main, I qualified 3rd and took over 2nd after 2 laps. Then gained a tenth here and a tenth there all race. I finally caught up to the rear bumper on the final lap and ended up .149 back.

I ran the stock setup with 3mm droop f/r, front spool, RP 30s, no swaybars, upperdeck mod, and removed centerbearing. RCProfessor batts, and HighVelocity motors. I'll work on setup next week.

I've got a big race next week. I'm hoping that the Pro4 can come through and put me on the podium
