View Full Version : Just wanna share - slash springs on pede
09-23-2008, 09:48 PM
I bought a set of slash shocks and put em on my pede. the handling was amazing. on dirt, it's not as bouncy as before as it soaks up bumps really good. on road, it doesn't flip as it used to be. overall i'm amazed with what progressive springs can do to you pede.
the only cons i saw was the pede got a little lower on the ground clearance due to the soft part of the springs. but overall nice.

Didnt realize the Slash springs were progressive. What weight oil you running? I have been jacking around with the springs on my Pede since I got it. I think I'm close to being happy with it, but need some heavier oil for the rear, as 50 wt cant control the springs I have on there now. Still to bouncy, at least on the workbench.

Hmm good idea didn't think about running the Slash springs on the Pede.

i'm running 35. stock i believe is 30. i think 30 is good enough. 35 is kinda thick a bit but works fine if you do a lot of jumping.

Just to clarify, Slash shocks, or just springs?

the slash shocks and pede shocks are just the same (ultra shocks), even length are same.

Finally the answer to my problem!!! (hopefully) I always wanted progressive springs for my pede. If this stops, or even noticeably helps my flipping problem then you'll be my new hero.

First RC, have you widened your Pede? I have not traction rolled mine since I widened the front end, except when I did it on purpose

firstRC, take note my pede fronts are widened to use rear arms. that helps a lot. but putting progressive would definitely help on a stock pede.
yey... i'll be someone's hero!
stamjato: what do you mean by traction rolled?
