    To an extent, his comment pertains to running SC tires, not something like 2.8s or a way larger diameter where chassis slap doesn't exist. Rear tower and rear shocks? How much taller is the rear...

    Seeing the bones have been dug up, a couple years ago DMG used a Bomber cage and Slash 4x4 suspension components, called it a "Thug".

    I think you could get a DB8 cage to fit without a lot of...

    Eye to eye? Where did you glean that info from? That is perfect for a 1/7 scale scratch build I have going now and front shocks are my gremlin.

    Thanks Dbl G. I have a Summit that I will pull the springs off of it to verify if the rate will work for me or not. With the rocker suspension, they are like 3 or 4:1, right? I haven't had time to...

    Drill and use an axle hex pin. Easy. File the groove a bit on the gear to accommodate for the larger diameter pin. STRC route will run you about $100 when done.

    I've haven't had problems with the 48p format. Axles, that is another story. I run 1/10 Summit axles now with good luck. MIP X Duty program will work for you. As for the lay shaft, I think the pin is...

    With the CC 1415 motor, 2400 kv, and Yeti SCORE tires, about 4.7", I ran 16-86 with 48p, hitting mid 40's on a 10 lb scratch build, RPM case. Your first casualty will be the lay shaft pin. Drill and...

    If you are into KOH type terrain, building that cage would be fun. If you like the comp stuff, you are looking at a bitter disappointment in performance, too top heavy. If you are a fabricator, a...

    That is a different looking deal, bouncer or what? From the assumption that it is made from rod (stated as built from steel), it could be waaaaay top heavy, probably pushing every bit of 8-10 lbs on...

    Are those the same as Summit shocks? If so, I need to increase the rate big time, provided the measuring format is the same.18.3 lbs is way too soft for what I need.

    Well I've been educated to say the least. Losi springs are not available at the rate I think I need. It just so happens that McMaster Carr has something that may work, at 8.08 inch pounds, 6 springs...

    If you're going to go 17mm hex with 2.8s, look at AE DB8 General Grabbers. I'll throw them on my Slash for a pic.
