    look good, did u run the truck with those shocks yet? if so..how does it handle? do you run them with stock oil and pistons?

    i almost did some adapter like that before i found some g3 shocktower on ebay. what did you use to make the adapters? i would trim some more material and try to dye them blue or black.

    i wish i could run the truck right now and see how it handle.. but the track isnt open and i still have some stuff to do on it :/

    lets us know how it run with that shocks setup, nice truck

    Suuuweet. MUST RESIST THE URGE TO MOD..lol..NOT!!! I want to upgrade mine to a 3.3 bad. then set it up with soft springs in the rear so it really sets down in the back for launches.

    Yeah they`re stock revo shocks, and the adapter is dividers vo a tackle box. The rear ones broke on the second jumb so I made a different set up with 2 of the adapters. THe truck handles really good and has no urge to flip like it did before.

    Good Idea. I was trying to think of how to spread the shocks a lil further out.. I have umpteen dozen of those dividers.

    you are genious i think i may get my friend to cut me out some metal ones like that on his flojet. that is a very good idea.

    i was thinking a design like this, its rough but you get it. put one on each side of the mount on the arm:





    on second thought one on each side may angle the shock.. maybe ill have them bent.

    I wish I had a friend with a flojet. It's ok for naw but if i come across (an available) a better set up idea I'll switch to it.

    Holy cow this is old

    Glad I could help. That truck is sitting very dirty half way stripped down in a shelf in my closet

    I hope to revive it soon, it's been there for almost a year!
