easy suspension mod

Hey, monster truck fans! If you compress the front suspension and cut off excess rod hanging down from chassis. You will get a little more room for going over stuff. If you run on thick carpet you will notice it.

Yup, this is an excellent and EASY mod!

I just used a pair of mini-wirecutters, and as wolfrocks5 says...compress the front suspension and just clip-off the excess, presto!

Easiest, worthwhile mod I ever did!

It's been a while since I posted here (just before summer) but I been lurking on and off past couple months, mainly reading about the new products )

Just picked up one yesterday. I think if you're willing to take it apart a little, you could shave off the top of the rod rather than the bottom, it should give you 2 or 3 millimeter more suspension travel. From what I can see, it may not make the dogbone and cup bind but it may come close.

I'm having too much fun with it to mod it yet, so it's untested.

I took off the front cover to see if it was limiting it, and it didn't seem to be.
