Took it for a spin and it drove really well until one rear axle shaft split open then the front wheels were unloading like crazy !

SO i need some stronger shafts as I see the joints are getting sloppy as well



Im really curious have you adjusted the position of your upper arms? They dont seem to be parallel with your upper arms

I have been thinking of that actually, brainstorming how I can make the lowers and uppers level. It's much easier to just make the uppers level.
Do you think I just need to level the uppers ?
if you look at the rear (black uppers) they are much more slanted.

Anybody have suggestions on Shock oil weight with soft or hard springs ?
I have ot setup so the suspension holds the car up but it seems to stiff.


Finally built my Lipo Tray box

3/16 Delrin sheet with mouse padd cut up and other high density foam to help cushion should impact accur.

Wow nice work on the battery box! As far as shocks go i recommend something stiffer than what you have, it looks like your still using the original red springs. Id recommend getting a integy spring kit. For on road the stiffer the spring the better but not to stiff though, you wanna stiffen up so the car corners flatter, but if your to stiff they're will be to much lateral G causing the car to break traction (drift). Actually better yet I'd just recommend getting some revo shock since they have progressive rate so they slow and firm on the compression stroke and soft and quick on the rebound stroke the bore is also bigger than the emaxx shocks.

Hey thanks for the compliments
,
you cant look at it and say it's to stiff though. What weight of oil do I use ? I'm using 60 with #43 3 hole.
It seems pretty stiff, I have no sway bar in the rear and it's doing well.

I was thinking maybe getting the revo ones but these Losi 8 shocks are really nice and I cant spend money right now ( still out of work)
I have a bunch of Losi 8 springs, Front is really stiff and the the next down soft in the rear is Losi 8 Purple Springs painted red.
Been shopping all over for onroad springs but nothing in 20.5 mm ID

ohhh ic i thought they were the big bores. In that case you should be fine there 16mm right? Yeah 60 wt is good but i think losi might sell progressive rate pistons. As far as it goes i think all you need to tamper with now is the springs.

cool thanks, I will switch up the springs, much easier than changing oil

What do you drive ? in Ca?

Hi there,
great work you got going here, just throwing a body into the mix- Mercedes C291, it has the look your going for. Here is the site of the custom company using the body in their 1/5 bl as well- http://www.modelconcept.fr/?cat=5
Not sure about the wheelbase or anything though.
