    Mirror wise you should buy the rubber ones from rcmodelex. They take ten times the beatings before giving in.
    I usually get a few sets then you have some spares.

    Hi mate looking nice mirrors are a nightmare I’m running mine with one totally missing and just the base on the other side lol! Quick question are you just using the standard shocks with the 3 and 4 link suspension set up? What’s it like if that’s how your running it?

    Yes I am running the standard shocks with the link kits but I have lowered the rear shock mounting points on the rear cross member using the leaf spring mounting hardware, that gives the sAme articulation but stops the wheels rubbing the wheel arches . To be honest I can’t realy say how it is in comparison to the leaf springs because I never ran it with them , I just found They felt a bit loose and now it’s solid as a rock ! It goes over anything you put in front of it . I think with bigger wheels and tyres it would be miles better again but it realy suits thEse wheels.
    I thought I had made a running video yesterday but after Ten minutes I noticed the camera was t recording :( . I will post a picture of the rear shock set up !

    Sounds interesting really consindering doing away with the leafs on mine for the full link setup but money is limited as always :unsure: and decent shocks ain’t cheap :pinch:

    To be honest I couldnt think of any reason to upgrade from the standard shocks , they Work great with A few drops of 35 weight oil in them . I bought both font and rear link kits with all the bolts for. Decent price , put a wanted post up , you never know !
    I’m putting my truck on eBay tomorrow night as I have just bought Somthing else to play with :)
