With the electronics and battery installed it sits a little more level with the chassis so maybe when driving it around the track it might level out.

the other solution i've found is to cut the ball cup of the shocks with the amount needed (in your case 3mm)
I double checked the shocks and they are tightened all the way down. And you're right about the threads being very soft. I almost ruined the threads when I noticed I was tightening the cap at a slight angle.

Yes I put the spacers under the piston. I made sure of that when I noticed it was hanging lower than the chassis. But it's good to know that its supposed to be like this because I thought I had somehow assembled it wrong.
