It CAN be done! This one is for you, Miami's finest.
Lost some ride height, I'm at 7mm, but now that I can adjust it, I'm sure I can get it back. I'll measure the geometry in a bit, but I think this can totally work.
WOW I feel real dumb right now, I wish I would have had a chance to try this. Looks great, if you don't mind can you take a pic of the ground clearance with the car at its tallest setting?!?
Eating dinner at the moment, but yes, more pics and adjustments on the way!
I put the top links on the other side too. The inboard bolts are a lil tricky to get to, but assuming they don't back out, I shouldn't have to worry about them.
Whats the purpose of flipping the arms?

Two holes in and I'm at 15 mm right under the arm. I pulled the shocks off to measure potential droop and got about 19 mm. I'll go one more in so the arm is pressed on the diffuser.
Whoa, iPad straight to photo bucket got weird, but this is the next limit in ride height.
Ditch the diffuser and we get 29mm before the skirts hit the tire.
Lol, why stop there when we all know this volume knob can be turned all the way up to 11...
Camber got a bit funky.
Cracks me up this thing in theory is RTR.
Nice now drop in some grp wheels and see where your ride height is at after that start dremeling if needed
Nice, so vs stock are there any downsides to flipping the arms ?. I really need more ride height too.
Are you gonna trim the rear diffuser?
There really isn't much to gain, I'll probably end up back in the stock orientation.
So are you converting the XO-1 to monster truck status?
ducati, if you trim the rear diffuser then you should gain some good height rt
so this may be a dumb question im new to on road big scale cars so whats the advantages with the ride height higher? then stock why is it better i guess im trying to ask.
more ground clearance = car will handle bumps in the road better and not scrape as easily
Curved A -arms... they would work so well.... hope the aftermarket is playing around with this car too.
For me it was so I could run different tires. Traxxas made everything on this car a funny size, making it difficult to run any other brands of equipment.
I just wanted to run tires that don't cost 100+ bucks a set.
That and Miami claimed it had never been done before... I like trying things like that.
ok cool thanks for answering my question car looks great with new ride height i might have to try this with mine
