PostSubject: BL-Slash w/N-Rusty RPM a-arms, rear shock mod   Mon Nov 24, 2008 10:02 pm

Well a friend gave me some Nitro Rustler a-arms and CVD's.
Well since I went brushless I thought it would be a good Idea.
Well got everything on there and looked at it and discovered a problem with the rear arms.

The N-rusty ones make the rear wheels toe out.
Talk about wanky handling, it was so bad I thought my radio was glitching.
You can see it in this pic


Well while looking at it I figured it looked like about the rite toe but backwards.
So I put the a-arms on backwards.
Was just rite toe as seen in this pic.


So this posed the problem of mounting shocks.
So I did a rear shock mount mod.



Ok now this worked out great I took it out to try it out and it handles even better than before.
Now with tons of power and now handling better than it did stock.
It drives at at speeds more like a touring car, still soft and eats up bumps like no tomorrow.

I'll be running a brace from the top of the shock to the chassis to stop the flex from the stand offs sticking out so far.
