My bad... The Serpent blue shock springs are the hard ones... What does the base setup call for??? ie... front and rear droop, camber, shock oil, shock spring... ect??? Just want to see how different the stock set up is from the 710 stock setup... Thanks

Dan take a Parma Body, I thing this body is good on low traction tracks. Not sure how the bumps will be with this body, but low traction it is good. If it is bumpy, also at some drop in the front, meanning more travel. let me know if you need any help.

You are a beast. I can not work on the car like that. The first night, I built the front end and that was it.
