Easy mod for using larger shocks
I wanted to use my 1/8 scale buggy shocks, but didn't want to alter the shock. Plus I couldn't seem to unscrew the shock end. I run rpm shock towers so I still have the stock traxxas towers. All I did was cut all material away from under the very top of stock towers. This allowed me the ability to mount them directly on top of rpm tower then install body post and use a longer screw to sandwich it all together.
Here is a pic of the front.[IMG]http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/10/04/ru8ehuse.jpg[/IMG]
Here is the rear with a screw through both tower parts. Don't think I needed the screw as I launched my p4de 40 plus feet for over a hour last Saturday with no breakage.[IMG]http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/10/05/ymepujyt.jpg[/IMG][IMG]http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/10/05/a8a8yza3.jpg[/IMG][IMG]http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/10/05/2uqa6y7e.jpg[/IMG]hope this can help someone out trying to use buggy shocks. I can measure the added length if need be.
