    Probably a little more info is needed. Which erevo do you have? What if any upgrades have you done (including motor/esc)? What type of terrain do you drive on? Jumps? Please elaborate on the issue. What shocks, springs and oil are you using? So many unknowns.

    Also, your previous posts are in the nitro section. This is the electric sub forum, maybe posted in the wrong sub forum?

    When you say your blowing out rear shocks, are you blowing the shock caps off, tearing off rod ends? How much preload do you have set on your shock collars?

    Make sure the chassis bottoms out before the shocks do. I ran into issues when I increased my tire size from 3.3 maxx tires to 3.8" trenchers. I had to move the lower pushrods ends out to a further hole on the arms so that the chassis would hit the ground before the shocks were fully compressed. Without doing that, I was snapping shock shafts and shock ends way too often.

    While I preferred to have it stand taller, the geometry wouldn't allow for it, so I had to lower the truck.
    Expert rigging at it's best!
