    SO whats your basic suspension setup... Bashing and Stability & Cornering

    Thought we made a small database of what are our specs for racing & bashing...

    Lets start like this:

    Bashing:
    Rockers P1, P2 or P3.
    Oil Weight: 50wt to 100wt
    Springs Color Front//Rear
    Wheel Tire combo

    Stability & Cornering:
    Rockers P1, P2 or P3.
    Oil Weight: 50wt to 100wt
    Springs Color Front//Rear
    Wheel Tire combo


    Lets Roll...

    Ride Height & Suspension Set~Up:
    My Bash set up:
    P2 Rockers 80 wt Shock Fluid, Blue Rear Silver Front, inner hole, and Traxxas sway bars.
    I set the shock preload by pushing the chassis to the ground.
    If the springs fully compress, back off the preload, if not fully compress increase the preload..
    Will also give you a little more ride height..
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    You use the 120mm travel springs with the p2 rockers, not LT rockers? Maybe ill try that too. Need more ride hight..

    Its not so much that you get more ride height but that they are stiffer springs.
    If it didn't break you can do it again.
