Ok thanks.

Yea then just do what Houston said. Get the ones that are 3mm longer or change your setup. ride height, hubs, etc.

What mm hubs are you using? I use 22mm and they work pretty dam good!

you mean 22 degree ?



or put limiters on the outside of the shaft to limit up travel , about 3mm or 4mm plastic spacers between the shock orings and the shock end

I had the same problem to a smaller degree. As Houston recommended, I put a 3mm plastic spacer on the shock shaft to limit the amount of uptravel, problem solved! It doesn't really effect the overall dampering or working of the shock, just at that critical end point which usually isn't reached very much anyway. As long as you have plenty of droop (about 116mm) you'll be fine.

Did you check the king pin bolt on the bottom? Had that happen to me and the bolt threads got striped out of the steering hub on the bottom side. Just gave it enough slop to let the dog bone pop out.

Default HPI RS4 vs Schumacher Fusion 28

Which would you get for parking lot bashing? Does the Fusion have any problems later on? Which is more fun?
