A Corally PDUB bumper is a really good fit, just need to elongate the holes a little bit.

Britracer I believe it is measured by starting at ride height. If you lift the car the tires will lift off the ground after travelling 1mm. This is called up travel. Say 4mm ride height + 1MM up travel = 5mm. Put a ride height gauge under both sides at 5mm. Adjust the downstops so the tires just touch the set-up board. Just make sure they are both equal. Hope this helps. Someone might have a better way of doing it.

How exactly do I measure the 1mm 1.5mm uptravel, sorry I am not familiar with this term.

I think this must be pretty critical as i tried it today to the best of my ability and it seemed to push quite a lot.

Is that refering to droop? Sorry I couldn't find that setup,what page was it on.

Anyone mounted electronics with a battery brace yet? ....Looks like the only way to make it work is the wires are gonna have to run under the brace ....between cells kid of thing.

Yup, as posted by Chris, that is droop measured at 1.5mm above ride height front and 1mm rear above ride height.

ok, so if i run 4.5 ride height, i would set droop to 5.5 and 6 Front/Rear.

Sounds high, but oh well!

Andy
When you have your car sitting on its tires, pick up the chassis like you were checking tweak. How far you pick up the chassis before the tires leave your pit board is the amount of uptravel. the uptravel is how far the suspension allows the chassis to rise, like droop but is measured differently.

The way mentioned is repeatable no matter what your tire size. Altough that is important as well.

no other gauge. You just measure with your ride height tool. Your ride height is 4.5mm and you have 1 mm of up travel then you lift the chassis until you can only get the ride height tool to 5.5mm
