    jump truck

    im in the middle of building my second e-revo i want to make a truck to air out , not worry about the jump being to big (this is with in reason ) what springs do you use ,shock oil ,and rocker setup . the reason i ask is i went with silver and blue spring 60wt oil and the p2 rockers and on badlands it just seem to low and from a 2.5 feet drop i hear it bottom out will going to the long travel help or just switch arms to say rpm make a difference thanks for any help

    I run the purple and pink with 80wt. Works pretty good with badlands. Look at my thread and click on the photo that was today hitting jumps

    Purple rear, silver front. 70 weight middle hole one arm. P2 rockers. Shock preload halfway out on Badlands and mine does big air just fine. The rear skid plate does show some bottoming out though, I replace it every month without fail. Aluminum may be in my future.
    I reject your reality and substitute my own!

    bottoming out is not a bad thing. imo the chassis and the skids can share the impact with the suspension system or you will start breaking rockers, bending shock rods etc

    i have purple springs all around with 90wt at about half way down on the retainer. as far as rockers, i run the aluminum ones. they have worked flawlessly. i used to run p2 rockers, but i busted 3 sets of them on hard flat landings so i deceided the alums were the way to go. i do BIG jumping though...50-60ft+. hope that helps.

    these are the style of rockers that i use...http://www.ebay.com/itm/SALE-Traxxas...item43b74a6048

    i just figured out my problem the shocks had limiters in them from the person i got them from , so i took them out and that means i put on the long travels for no reason now , it sits up now and no bottoming out
