Eric made lathed big bores before he carried dravtechs. I have a set on my Bullyll. Dravtechs are pretty, springs are finicky by weight,(limited between dravtech and mini tís they work fantastic on lighter rigs though.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...f2d7763ec9.jpg
Dravtechs on my 2 Iím right on the edge spring wise, would like a bit more though

What is considered light? I’ve heard nothing but good things about the dravtechs, just curious.

I would say eight pounds is all you can use with mini t springs. mY SCX10ii is a bit heavier now with dig,

Thatís a sweet spot for tuning....

Good to know :-) thanks,

Topher, I hope I’m not hijacking your thread. I’ve been looking at a performance based “comp style” rig for a bit. Your build threads are the most informative I’ve read. I appreciate you taking the time to answer all my questions.

No problem at all, I appreciate the interest. "thumbsup"

The Dravtech shocks aren't going anywhere. Dlux took over production and distribution of the shocks back in late 2018 and has been in charge of them ever since.

If you have a minute, can you give me an eye to eye length of your front links? I think mine are too long. I'm using the V3 chassis, AR44's and the aluminum pan hard mount. My track bar is hitting the upper link mount of the axle and my shock doesn't clear the pan hard mount to get full compression. Thanks!

Where’d ya get your links from? Can you post some pics?

I’ll get a measurement for you at some point today.

Re: Topher builds a TGH/G-Speed V3
 
I ordered the links from Intheworksrc. I can post pics when I get home from work this afternoon.

These are from last night. I have since moved the PH mount forward one hole and it lines up better but I can only use one screw to attach to the chassis. I was looking at your pics this morning ans saw that the front axle sits way further back than mine. I'll measure my WB and get some better pics after work. Thanks for your time bro.

Re: Topher builds a TGH/G-Speed V3
 
Are your links set up like this?

Longest to shortest
Rear lower
Rear upper
Front lower
Front upper

I’ve had similar issues with his links before, and the replacement links I got didn’t help either but when I got a different set they worked perfect. My fronts were too long also.

Re: Topher builds a TGH/G-Speed V3
 
I think that's where I'm at but I'll verify when I get home. Thanks!

Hope this pic helps. Rough measurement puts the front lower around 120mm. Maybe a tad more.

Re: Topher builds a TGH/G-Speed V3
 
Should also point out that the panhard mount topher is running is the TGH panhard and the panhard you are running is the aluminum from the v3 carbon combo ( I also have this combo currently taped to the cardboard it was shipped in haha), which is exactly why I have yet to order links from either hardcore RC or intheworksRC because I have yet to hear if either/neither/both will work with the gspeed aluminum panhard mount and I dont want to buy a nice link set and have to jimmy rig the panhard.

Re: Topher builds a TGH/G-Speed V3
 
Yes Duke is correct. I’m running the tgh mount. I don’t think it would solve his problem though because the tgh mount is in the same relative location on the chassis, it just allows for a longer panhard bar. Which translates to less axle swing. Lou’s problem looks to be too long of front links which wouldn’t allow him to connect the panhard properly. The multi platform panhard might work a little better?

On hardcore RC, the “wertymade” option is the on the that comes with the kit, and the same as the aluminum one gspeed just put out if that’s what you’re referring to.

That’s good to know. I also wasn’t sure if your tgh Mount was more low profile to allow for more shock clearance also, which he indicated as being an issue

Re: Topher builds a TGH/G-Speed V3
 
I just measured all my links. I ordered the SS/ aluminum hybrid link set. The lower links are Stainless and those measure 135mm and 124mm. The three aluminum links all measure 120.5mm. I’m gonna try the 120’s up front and see how that shakes out... I’m not to confident that they will line up though...
