Thanks jmackani, what about the bottoming out? is that normal or are there springs or bump stops that prevent to bottom out? i dont know much , i wonder about the sky blue springs i see all the time on pictures , do springs prevent that ?, this rtr kit had the black/grey toned springs. Are there better spring brands? or is it best to use kyosho brand?

Springs have nothing to do with bottoming out unless your spring is either way to soft that it can't support the weight of the car or so stiff the car can't compress them. That's entirely your piston and oil choice. The chassis on buggies and truggies is ment to slap down on hard impacts distributing the load

Kyoshos are notorious bottom draggers, and yes there are two different shock towers and corresponding shocks.

Notorious how? My MP7.5, MP777, and MP9 buggies all had the same wear as my Mugen buggies, nothing seemed like the Kyoshos chassis was bottoming more than others.
