    Tuning the suspension, & at launch the car literally jumps up lifting all four wheels, comes down then front wheels pop up to a wheelie.

        I see you have the "Anti-gravity" system working well. :lol:

        It's a Hover-car.

            shock not long enough?

            Not enough shock control.

            That's a ton of parts breakage just waiting to happen.

              Shock issue for sure either not enough dampening or possibly to short. We need video. Give me the you tube address or nae and I'll load it.

                  Agreed. Way more travel required. That video was telling for sure. His rear axle hardly moved at all it seemed.

                  Bo with all that bouncing around it ran 6.19 at the 1/8, should equal to a 9.60 @ the 1/4

                      Jay you know I just went through this whole shock thing, the shocks I was sent with my 4 link we’re not right and I recognized it right away. I knew there would be nowhere near enough travel, I worked with Jake fromViking performance and James from PST and got them the measurements they wanted and they came back with a shock much larger than the ones I was sent with my kit. I’m expecting my custom Viking crusaders in the mail anyday now!

                            Caltracks is 10 min from me and have a good friend who works there, took my car to there shop and they said shocks where good, sent them the video & definitely needs more dampening, had the shocks set on 3 clicks and they said it needs more like 6-7 clicks,

                            Judging from the video it looks like there isn’t enough travel, but their the professionals not me lol.

                            ok cool so the video is working? I believe it has like 5"-6" of travel and when the car is sitting down, about 1" to 1"1/2 of the rod is showing, so hopefully slowing down the separation will fix it.
