I need some help with an issue I have. My Leopard doesn't bottom out in the rear and my concern is the force will be transferred somewhere else!! I will be in a demo race at the end of the summer and it will be a 1/8 track so the jumps may be a bit much for it. I'll post some pics tonight of my set up. Without the shocks on I still have close to 1/2" spacing between the chassis and ground!! I'm using the full elcon/krikke rear end and still have dogbones but will get the ball drives one day. When I remove the upright risers with the 32mm turnbuckle I have less travel then with them off and using the long, stock turnbuckle. I can use alloy or plastic ball ends as well. Last thing I want to do it go off a jump and land breaking or bending something during the demo largescale race!! Simon I see you use the diff risers and the long turnbuckle set up. I may have ot try that one out. Any secrets you can PM me??
