Sorry if this is too late...

I think they just meant to mount the shocks on the rear of the rear arms instead. If you have the high-traction arms (come with the DB-01R), there are already holes there. Otherwise, you need to drill new shock mount holes.

The camber link needs to be moved about too (I moved mine to the front of the tower).



I still can't tell what this does on the track, but it made shock and spring access a lot easier (while the HT arms lasted, I didn't bother with the drilling mod on regular arms).

what is the "drilling mod"?

New question: I now use the blue springs on the front, but would like to have a spring a bit stiffer.

What spring should i use? I heared the asso-springs suit the shock, but what color asso-spring can be compared with the blue Tamiya-spring?

Or should I cut away a coil or two of the regular Tamiya spring (as I believe this makes the spring stiffer)?

Oops. By "drilling mod" I meant drill 3 shock mounting holes on the back of each rear arm so you can mount the shocks there. I've never done it myself though, so don't know the details.

@ DCM,

why do you run Losi-shocks over the TRF-ones?

My current setup for Southport. Track is mostly high grip astroturf.
Car feels lively but planted and predictable.

How does moving the shocks to the rear of the shock tower a mod? And how does it feel on the track? Seems to me your putting to much weight on the rear wheels by doing this.

Does this really help?

All-new DB01 chassis locates heavy components such as battery and motor near the center for optimum weight distribution.
Race-proven and reliable 2-belt driven 4WD system is completely enclosed with ABS resin covers to prevent dirt and debris from interfering with drivetrain operations.
Chassis features integrated bulkheads, which reduces the number of parts and simplifies maintenance.
Tough ABS resin 4-wheel double wishbone suspension system features the same configuration as the TRF501X and provides a wide range of settings options.
Brand new buggy body with rear wing is made from lightweight polycarbonate material.
Wheels, tires, and Type 540 motor are included.
2-channel transmitter, ESC, running battery & charger are separately required.
