A question on droop - I know the setup book says to check this with the shocks off but why is this when clearly the car runs with shocks on? Also does everyone do this or do some set it with shocks on? Thanks

If I can do it with the shocks on (gauge not hitting the shock bottoms) I will, otherwise I'll disconnect them at them bottom.
Make sure all your shocks are the same length.

I always set it w/ shocks on. I believe the most important thing is to follow the same procedure every time you set it up or change anything. Meaning, don't do it initially with shocks off, then do it between runs with the shocks on.

Thanks very much for the advice. I will go with shocks on all the time.

I run 2 different weight batteries so I always check wheel lift when swapping cells with shocks on but base setup is with shocks off
