    Hey any body got any ideas for shock placement to get a little bit more travel out of basic shocks without having to replace them. I'm in the process of puting a d60 rear in and I have to put new mounts on it and was just curious if I could improve my RTI a little bit. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif I was looking at the UAV's set up but I wasn't sure if he is using the factory location on the axle. planning to do it down the road once I get use out of exsisting shocks. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    It seems that alot of competition rock buggies use alot more flex drooping and limit upward travel. Maybe if you used bumpstops and stuck a longer shock on while /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif limiting uptravel?

    well the point was to not have to buy new shocks. I was thinking about moving them in an inch or two just so they had alittle bit less distance to travel. Also thought about relocating upper so its right above the mount instead of at an angle forward or rear.
