    Jumping isn't the ONLY thing I do I still zip around the yard while jumping and every once in a while ill hit the streets and bash with a buddy but I jump a lot. I think I will just go with the traxxas sways again if I decide to try sway bars. It's suppost to rain all this weekend so I probabl won't get a chance to try out the new shock fluid hopefully the weather man will be wrong and we will get a break in the rain

    I changed the shock oil to 70wt and made sure the VDP valves were in the correct position which they were so I will try it out tomorrow if it doesnt rain

    Sounds good, let us know how it does.

    Out of curiosity, which brand shock oil are you using? Hopefully you're not mixing brands of different weights.

    I have hardly any preload at all, the pink and purple springs are pretty stiff.

    Just curious, are you running the stock pushrods or did you replace them?

    I had a problem bottoming out on my truck and realized the Al pushrods need spacers to set them to the proper length. Without them, the rods are about 3mm too short which drastically impacts how your shocks are loaded.

    I'm run 60wt oil, VDPs w/ #2 pistons, blue/silver springs, TRX swaybars with silver springs, and Al rods (with spacers) in the middle hole. I've been doing quite a bit of jumping and am pleased with the suspension performance.

    Ok tested it out with the 70wt oil and it was better but I broke a rocker I can't catch a break!

    Should I replace them with stockers or try aluminum?

    I'm using the correct pushrods

    I always stick with stock rockers. I've only broken 2 or 3 rockers ever, and that's over several years.

    *nudge* If you have to replace the rockers anyway, now's the time to pick up some P3 rockers and pushrods to go with them if you want to give them a try lol
