Default no rebound shock building?

guys, i am trying to build a no rebound shock. i already drilled a 1mm hole through the plastic shock cap and removed the foam insert. when i put the shock cap back on, i am seeing about 50% rebound. i wanted to make sure-does this mean i still need to bleed the shock to achieve no rebound?

Try pushing your shock bladder to full expansion in the shock. This should create 0 rebound.

We need to know what size spur you're using, what motor, what timing on the motor, what ESC, what track size before we can attempt to suggest a pinion size to start with. Rubber tire or foam?

I would start around 5.7 for a FDR What pulleys are you running 34 or 38

Anyway to get your FDR take you Spur divided by your Pinion and multiply that by your internals (1.7 or 1.9) depending on what pulleys you are using.

Default Springs

This might be a silly question, but what would be the performance characteristics of running shorter springs in the front and longer in the back like the NT1 calls for? Again, might be a dumb question but curios? Would even matter since the front shock on an electric is not laid down as much as on a gas?

Hi, I will buy the new XRAY T3, Iím new to Electrical RC cars so I need some help to pick the correct equipment (I have gasoline car from before).
What type steering servo is recommended to buy for this car?
If I will drive in the modified class which Motor under 10.5 turn and Pinion Gear should I buy for this car ? I wants the best set up as possible.
I will also need an speed controller, which controller to choose? Is it any speed controllers I can use for Electric motors in both modified and Superstock class. I was just thinking off the option to buy a good speed control, so I can just changes the engine to start in the two different classes. Will that work? I can see the T3 is made for Lipo batteries, is Lipo recommended compare to NIMH? Which size and type batteries should I buy for the T3.
When it comes to tires and wheels, do you have any recommendation for good Tires and wheels.
I appreciate if you can post some links, if you recommend some equipment, then it will be more easy for me to find the correct equipment.
Where in the US, do you find the best prices? I hope some experience people can take the time to answer my questions.

Visit your local track and you might find answers to all those questions. Alter natively you can try to read this entire thread (seems daunting, but that's the way it is). Your choice.

Nimh is dead technology. For Lipo you need a specialised charger and balancer or a charger with balancer function.
