RC How To:

Savage X / Baja 5B Shock Mod (6)



The finished product is a stout modification that will allow you to fear no jump. The shocks are internally adjustable. I have them on the softest settings but there still is no bottoming out and absolutely no bounce. Just a nice "swoosh" when it hits the ground. It just seeps ruggedness.


Below the pictures are the part numbers and links to the product themselves.
