I had heard of there being problems, but I tried running it verticle in a cutout section of my front bumper with the fk04 and I never had any problems on three different tracks. I haven't had any problems with it being vertical behind the bulkhead either.

But hey, I cut my spektrum receiver wire to 3 1/2" and I've never had a problem with that to.

If you follow the instructions at this link, you'll never have bleeding problems again and I won't charge you anything either.

Tamiya shocks are the best shocks IMO but xray shocks can be as good if built the right way

You lot are beaten to easily! Carnt build shocks so you buy idiot proof Tamiya shocks!

Xray shocks are fine! you just have to find a method of building them that works! Mine is nothing like TeamGPs but it works for me!

Hey guys. I run my car on low bite carpet with foam tires. What would be the best starting point as far as droop. I dont use the gauge. I set it by using the millimeters above ride height technique. Thanks

Hey Andrew, I am buying this car and everyone seems to complain about the shocks. What is your method of building these?

Thanks

Hi Guys
What does a spacer underneath the steering arms lifting them a 1mm or 2 above the steering hub do ....? Hope that makes sense...
Cheers

I'll admit when i first started on the shocks i was kinda disapointed, but once i finally got it right, everything was fine, Ralph Burch said that alot of people just bleed their shocks wrong.
