it is in finnish so the google translation is probably not the best.

I make the two shocks the same length and then set the droop screws so that they touch the chassis just before the shock piston bottoms out.

Ride height... rear arms level and front just a bit lower than rear.

well maybe i should explain where i measure from...my bad...

i took the measurments from the "Center" of the shockcap eyelet
to the Bottom shock shaft eyelet.......

same way they measure on the Ae,Losi's and Mugen's
for example, on the "Set Up sheet"
you'll notice where on one of them it has the Measurment of
110 for the front and 129 for the rear....
I'll post a pic here in a few....

there are seveal ways to measure so i should have maybe explained it a little better..
sorry everyone....

but can also some will measure say from a rim with no tire on it,and measure from Axle down or up etc.

i hope this can help Clairify, if any Questions let me know..
