It all depends on the track and your driving style.

Limited droop in the front is 105-106. A lot of droop in the front is 109-110
Limited droop in the rear is 125-126. A lot of droop in the rear is 129-130.

Some people like a lot of droop in the cars. Keep in mind that a lot of droop can cause traction rolling problems in certain conditions.
Typically on the blown out or rough track you will want more droop. On a blue grooved track or smooth track with lots of traction you will want less droop.

Make sure your shock lengths are the same before you put them on the car. Then to measure the droop measure from the center of the shock tower screw to the center of the a-arm screw.

On the front....the length from the bottom of the shock body to the top of the shock shaft end should be 35mm. The rear should be 46mm.

If you run a lot of droop make sure you have it limited enough to keep the shock from being over extended. That will result in your shock shaft ends getting damaged.

I hope that helps.

thanks a lot i didn't think to have a completely ansewr like that but 46 mm for the rear shock it's the stock length and when you did it the piston goes out the shock, It's why i asked the length that you use

EJF If i remember correctly I repinned a couple Ofna and Mugen Flywheels with some OFNA pins back in the day. I Cant honestly remember the length or size but im sure if you measure up your flywheel and look you could find something that would work.

How is the easiest way to get to my throttle servo on my mbx6? I have to replace it but am not sure how to get it out and put a new one back in without taking a bunch of the buggy apart. Thanks for the help

Just remove the radio tray from the bottom side. Should only be 6 or 8 screws. Then you will have better access to the servo.
