Same as you do now with a conventional setup.

It's the part of the shock near the centre of the car that moves, the bit near the outside by the wishbone that is fixed.

it just looks like you would be compressing the springs instead of bringing the ride height up any

Very short wishbones and upper links etc. The Losi hasn't done well on our outdoor tracks so this might suffer.
Need to come to the US as I have seen the Losi do very well on outdoor tracks and asphalt.

Is Thundermoth, ThunderTiger?

It uses the same shocks and wheelhubs as the AE TC4, same hue
of the blue anodized aluminum parts as the AE TC5.

Is this from AE's Area 51?

I like the whole push-rod/cam IFS shocks.

It looks very unique. Are they going to sell these as is? Or is this a proto-type with out shock towers ahaha

Myself and a co-worker were giving this design a lot of consideration and the only thing we could come up with was that the cams that actuate the shocks have un-equal length arms so that the shock compresses more than the upstroke of the arm. The shock floats on those pivot points and rotates as the arm goes up while the cam is compressing it. Would love to see a video of it in full travel to verify...

British results, seeing as Skiddins is from the UK.

Losi is basically non-existant over here in Europe, and I daresay, most of the world now.
