Here's a link to: a IGT board with LOTS of set ups

and they tend to run the gamut from old to new.... The one I'm running is an OLD hand written on that I've had for years.... and I'm NOT 100% sure where it is at the moment!

Look at the OFNA stuff. Think the Oval GTP car might have what you are looking for, or the front off road car. The front DM-1 shocks are the shortest that they make.

thank you Chis K will go through then later gotta go by gut for weekend though now being i should be heading to toledo tonight

Grenade10 i have been searching through ofna's site and all the gtp2 and dm models all use the the same front shocks the late model dirt oval uses them on all 4 corners with different shock towers tho.
I was just trying to avoid having to make shock towers that would set the shocks up so the suspension worked correctly

also are any of you limiting the up travel on your suspensions?

Get some Revo shocks. That's what I ended up using on my OFNA. You can then pick up the Integy spring set for the Revo and have spring options. I did make some new towers for the Revo shocks but you can use the stock ones to start.

Ummm... it helps...Did you cut it off?
I cut the lip off an old one... ran the car and felt a difference in high speed turn in... but it was not like you took off the rear wing..
Do you plan on being in the grass a lot Jacko?
