What length's were the shocks overall front/rear.

Thanks

Hi Guys,

Just a quick note, we have titanium screw kits available for the Schumacher Mi2 now. Check it out in The Racer's Corner and click on the titanium screw kit menu.

Mo when they say to take the roll center plate and cut it down how because i tried fitting up on top of the supension blocks and there is no room to install a nut to hold it down.
Sorry to ask the question because I really havent seen pauls and troys car up close in detail!

If you have mid corner push it is worth lifting the rear inner hinge pin blocks. We have been running anywhere around 1.2mm higher. This "Frees up" the rear of teh car and so gives more mid corner steering.

matt I'll try that next because I just took out the roll plates upfront and installed 1mm shimm upfront.
I am guessing you set up might be an in between which I will actually try this wednesday night;. but I am going to try my shim set up first.
Pluss I am waiting for the socalled carpet shock towers which have different camber link locations.

adyb: I believe my shock are 63.5mm, front and rear.

speedxl: you just cut the front the the riser plat off so that it braces across the two front suspension mounts. Then just use a longer screw to go through it all and put a nut on.

Hey Mo,

Did you remove the riser plate from both the front and rear or just the front?

I have been running 3 washers under the rear blocks, and 2 washers under the front. So that woulld be a similar balence to what you have by removing and then shimming the front.

Just the front riser is removed.
