Thanks for checking out the stuff.

So, the wheels and tires are bolted on and the new body is trimmed and fitted as well.
Turbo Scorpion rear shocks with alloy CRP collars are bolted on out front and a new
lower arm set, upper arm assembly, tie rods, steering rod, servo, linkage set,
servo saver, wing mount, roll bar, & rear guard set were also installed.










First Mod: drilled 3mm holes like the stock mounts in the the extended front shock mounts and installed an "RCH-style" shock tower brace.













Second Mod: made a custom wing mount.











Thank You for taking a look. - Arco

I like that you use all those hop-ups!

Those RCH support brackets also came in carbon fiber.

Hey Arco is it normal for the rear suspension to bind slightly? I picked up a scorpion rerelease and started putting it together last night, when I got the rear suspension on I noticed it hangs up in the middle of cycling the arms up and down. I haven't installed the shocks yet. If I take out the dogbone the arms move freely but with the dogbones installed is when I get the binding. I didn't notice where the parts were left and right I even swapped them and it still happens. Any thoughts?

Default I think an alignment may be in order.

@sf2000xj
I have heard mention of the issue you describe from a few others. IDK why the arms are binding other than the way it may be bolted together at the pivot. I have not built mine yet. It is still sealed.

My guess is that this pivot is a hinge and the hinge is binding. Sometime on the old cars there is some play and there is an optimal angle for this pivot. Maybe it will disappear after it is broken in but I would put all the pieces together with the bolts slightly loose and attempt to set that hinge just right.

Hope this helps. Best of luck. - Arco

Thanks for the reply, I've narrowed it down to the driveline, the dog bones are just a smidgen to long. Actually I think the drive cups on the diff should have been machined out just a little more. It only happens with the shafts installed. For the most part the shock springs can overcome this and rebound back but sometimes it sticks. I put it all together and will run it I'm sure after a while they will wear in and it will go away. The only problem I have now is I want to buy two more and build a Tomahawk and a Beetle, lol.
