best srb front shocks yet

best srb front shocks!
i was running the stock shocks on the front end / that worked well untill the front springs broke from wear points. i use the car alot with 18650 batteries....

i got the rcchannel front shocks but the springs are not great and the shocks are garbage. also the shock adaptors are garbage so the lower shock mount needs to be shortened to 0.350" so the shock mount adaptors can be deleted.


i was looking at 19mm spring shocks but they dont fit because spring clearance to the upper arm...

then in complete despiration i mounted the stock fighting buggy rear shock and it fits PERFECTLY. all the sudden the shocks offset top mount works perfectly and is very much needed.

the hose mount needs to be deleted and a bleed screw added in its place if you want to ditch the shock oil tank that sits on the top back end of a fighting buggy.

-the lower arm mounts need to be shortened to 0.350" if you want to fit the rcchannel shocks or the rear fighting buggy shock on the srb front end without the pos rcchannel front shock adaptors that are novelty garbage.

no pictures yet but my fighting buggy is fixing to be at the head of the pack.....
