    How to lower chassis for street

    So I just got the ProLine Street Fighters on for the first time with the 2.2/3.0 wheels and wow... those are a tall tire. Taller than I thought. I don't have an LCG chassis yet which obviously I need. But aside from the LCG, how else can I get the chassis as low to the ground as possible? Thanks.

    Shorter shocks, or Internal Shock limiters, heavy oil, heavy springs, shock adjusters adjust ride height.

    Besides the stuff already listed the rear bearing carrier should have two holes to attach it to the arm, put the pin in the lower one if it isn't already.

    You can try to put the pin in the upper hole to lower it, but the drive shafts rub the arm. The lower hole is stock.

    The o.p. wants to lower the chassis, by moving the outer hinge pin to the lower hole in the bearing carrier will raise the axle therefore lowering the chassis by the difference in the amount of the two holes. I know it's not much. Front shocks on the rear is another easy method.

    Put fuel tubing in the shocks to limit the movement. This will also stiffen the suspension.

    I'm sorry bud, I was mixed up. The lower hole is stock though.
