    WideMaxx Chassis Slap

    I have the Widemaxx with steel drivshafts. Put in 100wt oil in the rear and 70wt in the front. Getting plenty of chassis slap off small jumps and just transitioning from the street up driveways at speed - back end smacks the concrete. Truck handles amazing but would like to have about another 1/2" travel before back end smacks ground. Any rear spring suggestions? I do have the 1.725 springs that came with the widemaxx kit on the rear shocks. Thanks!!

    Get some T bone protection 1st, get gold hot racing springs or full big bore alum shocks.

    Unless you find a bigger shock than what comes on the 4s Maxx already, idk what big bore shocks you could use.

    Got GPM gold/silver springs and 70wt oil. I launch mine at the skate park and this setup takes it very well.
