I fully realize this might be a dumb question (insert joke here), but how the heck is the front droop adjusted on the RX8-2014? I have fully put my new RX8 2014 together and for the life of me can not seem to understand where the front droop screws are? are there any? or is the shock travel just adjusted with shims in the shock like 1/10 scale off-road cars?

I feel like I am missing something very obvious here... but I am new to 1/8 scale onroad cars... this is my first one, and I am obviously confused! any help would be appreciated!

thanks in advance!

Page 19 on the picture above the one mounting the front bumper. At the left there is a purple box called "downstops"

Those 2 screws

Thanks for the response... however those screws don't really touch anything? they are 8mm long and dont touch the chassis, the front arms or anything other than the bulkhead? how do those actually do anything to adjust droop?

You still need to mount the holders of the old style blade anti roll bar. The depth of the screw will touch that part and determ the downstop of the suspension arm.
