free height measurement? And what is max weight that can be used?

If only euro truck can use the sealed tt02 style shocks everyone is adding in some type of fluid in the friction shocks. Weather it be 1mill diff oils or some type of thick grease to take the hoping away. Now with the buggyra body. It makes the cab over pointless to even run.

ok I understand itís box stock but I want to know what the height of the spring free length whoís going to measure it. What is ride height? The rule also states no excessive weight what does that mean? So if a truck comes in at 5 mm
ride height itís ok?

as long as itís the kit friction shocks and springs it should be legal, not sure how you will get the ride lower with what is included in the kit

With the motor change in the GT Pro Spec, is there a preferred brushed esc? I was out of r/c for 10 years or so and since I came back about 5 years ago, I haven't messed with anything brushed.
