I drilled my own holes on my old TC3 arms & used 12th scale 4-40 setsrews from the dampner tube for droop screws. I ran these 2 years before they came out with them on the cars. I never broke an arm because of the holes in them. With the size of foam tires changing all the time you have to use droop screws because of the amount of times you need to adjust them. R.W.

necessarily true, just keep a standard shock limiter that can be used at all time and then set droop with the shock ends, when the tire gets to small for the shock end to be adjusted right, replace with a smaller spacer, they don't need to be on the inside, the out side is much easier and works just about the same.

no matter what car you drive, drive it with other drivtrain layouts(4wd,rwd,fwd)

with that you will experience other lines and line factors that a different type of car can take...

AND with that you can improve you techniqe and speeds

Thrust me on this on
