    Lemme see your ride height!

    I've been changing springs today (double pink in the rear and blue in the front) and messing with my ride height. I'd like to know if you are all the way up, all the way down, or somewhere in between.

    I have my A-arms about flat. But I also have off-road tires on it more than on-road and I don't have much jumpable terrain around here.

    If I was running those HPI tires I would have it slammed.

    On road= skidplates almost touching the ground (watch out for the bots dots in the middle of the road, they are like a jump at 70 with no suspension...)

    Off road= arms at a slight slope. I run badlands off road, so there is a little height gain with them.
    I reject your reality and substitute my own!

    same here, arm level with onroad wheels/tires set-up, i have double yellow summit springs with no preload.
    my GT8 only have less than 1/2 inch off the ground and i zip tie the rocker to even get it lower.

    Arms are almost level, I think the front is slightly lower.

    My ride height just changed..... a lot. I went to Summit wheels and tires. Locked rear diff, gear changes, drives a LOT better than on those phatlines. So open front diff, locked rear, seems to be the best of both worlds. I went over and through everything today at any speed from a crawl to 50 mph. I really dig these wheels. Now I think I want a Summit Body. Having a bit of a time finding one used.

    I want to see a video running 50mph with those summit tires. I've seen video at 26mph and the tires were deforming so bad that the truck was bouncing around.

    you wont see a high speed run with those tires and if you ever attemp to go all out you'll shread them to pieces. i did taped my summit tires and it actually held up pretty good on speed run bu i have to say it wear out fast.
