    Revo 3.3 suspension help

    Howdy, I morphed a Slayer Pro into Revo 3.3, I installed a trans/opti drive unit and bought arms, links, ect from part #'s off of the exploded diagram. All seems well except the GTR shocks bottom out before the chassis does. The chassis is 1" from making contact when the shocks have completed their throw. I have gone over the rockers-stock calls for P2, and the push rods are at the hole closest to the hub. Does this seem correct? have I missed something?

    thanks for any help! Troy

    The slayer springs are a bit weak for a truck that size, get the proper springs from revo silver and blue.

    Thanks, I should have given more info. The springs were from a revo and the ride height is good, but when you manually compress it the chassis on both ends is about an inch away from bottoming, just seemed odd.

    check to see where your blue bump stops are on the slayer they are inside the shock to limit the shocks travel

    Thanks chickenman, good thinking. They do not have the bump stops, Im leaning towards the wrong push rods, Ill have to look over the part #'s again, the breakdown show's a couple different options.

    call off the search! I stepped back to do some head scratching, that's when I got curious why the pushrod's had a hex midshaft...... some "richard cranium" used toe links where push rods were supposed to be!!

    ebay shopping I will go! thanks for the help friends!
