View Full Version : Shocks

Ok so i am new to this whole MERV thing and noticed that my revo's chassis would hit the ground when i pushed down on it.. so i adjusted the springs on it so it doesn't hit anymore (figured that if it hit to hard it might break the chassis). Now after reading thru the forums a bit i notice that maybe its suppose to hit the ground?
I was so proud of myself for figuring out how to adjust them too hehe.. Maybe i shouldn't of left them how they were?? thanks in advance..

It just depends on how much travel of the suspension you want. I prefer some scratches on the bottom over a broken chasis.

I did notice the ride was higher too.. little worried about it rolling easier.. I don't do any hard core jumps.. maybe 4 feet at the most (for now).. Mostly go to the skate park and zip around or front driveway..

If I am not mistaken, the design is so the car bottoms out. The chassis absorbs energy through the bottom that would otherwise be transferred through the shock mounts and result in some form of damage to the chassis....typically

Well i guess i'll be turning them so it bottoms out again.. Maybe i'll turn them up if i am not jumping or in grass so it rides a little higher.. erx4x4 where did you get your caps and adjusters and what do they do?
