Hey guys,

Its been a while since I was able to do something with my truck (weather was crap and time was just escaping me). Anyhow, I have finished the beast and thought you might like to see the end result.

I hope you like the result. If the weather is okay tomorrow I will do some vids outside of it running.

Looks interesting with the smaller body on it. Sort of using it like a 5B body setup.

Would be good to see it sitting on all 4 wheels to get a better idea what the ride looks like  :wink:

Will check out the running video when you have it up.

Hard isn't it trying to drive and flim at the sametime  :wink:

If you get a GoPro or similar type camera you can velcro tape it to the end of the controller so it makes it easier to film.

Hey guys,

Time for me to pick you brain for some advice. So I went out driving today and did one small-ish jump downhill. Landed it pretty perfect flat on all fours but my dual shocks on the rear right snapped like twigs. Now I have been searching and searching on the net on what would be the best set-up for a truck as heavy as mine.

Here's what I got so far. Please keep in mind that the rig is about 10kg or 22lbs with lipo's so there is quite a bit of weight hanging on those shocks... Also I am using the RPM A-arms that are for the Savy Flux HP.

Shock options that have tickled my interest:
- Rovan Piggybacks for Baja (8mm shafts)
- Losi LST XXL shocks (no specs found)
- LST255R06 Blue Heavy Duty Reservoir FMJ Shocks

So the difference with the shocks that I am running now is that they will be MUCH beefier. How will that work with the hook-ups to the A-arm? And, if I am using a much beefier set of shocks, what will happen with that tiny little screw that goes into the A-arm? Should I make some sort of bracket to go around the A-arm? I don't want the connection point on the arms to snap once I am running shocks that are actually right for the truck...

Thanks in advance for the suggestions.

Did you ever sort out what shocks you wanted to go for? If you say your truck is 10kg then I would only recommend the Baja front shocks on all 4 corners as they are very strong and it's pretty much a factory fit just the wheel selection needs to be able to clear the shocks at maximum lock. My truck will be 9.5kg with body which includes the heavy Baja wheels and 2 8000mah 4s packs so I feel your truck is a bit lighter than mine. Check my updated project thread for info on the shock setup.
