I have cut out some of those cross horns that come with the servo, plus I had some OFNA arms from prior kits, but the length sometimes it's too long and making holes is reducing my stock.

I am sure it's a simple answer but I am stuck. Please Help. I am sure I will have more questions as I continue my rebuild.

This might help you

Yep, the thin blue real futaba ones are strong. I had one of the thicker silver ones tower sells and it was easier to cut/dremel than the thin blue one, lol

Default Shock length

I set my droop at 2 without the shock and sway bar. I added the sway bar and my droop stayed at 2. When i put the shocks on the droop is now at 1. Are my shock too long or is this ok? This is the front by the way.

What should front and rear shock length be?

Also how much steering in degs are you guys getting? Im 22 deg both ways with 1 deg toe out

thanks for the help

that should be correct, that is why you set the droop minus the shocks etc. because the shocks press the arms down further

it depends on your rebound

by the way you should set your droop with the sway bar disconnected, then add the sway bar and ensure it stays the same - if not your sway bar is tweaking your car. Then add the shocks and repeat the process

Yes it is milled out for the bulkheads and also in other places as well to remove unneeded weight, but the best bit is that its milled out in the whole area of the engine bay (unlike the mugen 4mm chassis) which allows the use of the Kawahara one piece engine mount if so desired!
It's also only 1 gram heavier than the standard mugen 3mm chassis!
