Arrow Level-3 R/C Shock Drop Kit..! Opinions..?

so guys.. i caved and i bought a set of these for my scx10 based tuber
but i sold it and kept these so i modified the hole size where they mount to the stock shock tower
and now they fit like a glove! im running de-anodized creeper shocks and the flex is awesome,
way better than stock by far, super adjustable, dont have a bad thing to say about em,
the machining on em is great im just amazed by the fit and performance not bad for $15

btw YES my lipo is ziptied to my chassis im a certified ziptie mechanic LoL

I am using this droop kit too. I modified the front kit on mine. Look at the thread Oilcanman's....that is what I am building. The only down side to this cheap kit is the cheap screws....I snapped two mounting screws so I found some better ones. I love that I can run an over 5 inch long shock and still be low enough in overall ride height. I bought 2 kits because I was going to mount one on my own Wraith but decided not to. I am going to use Traxxas Big Bores on mine so no need for droop kit.

I had some that came with a used wraith I bought... Recently too k them off and flipped the lower shock mounts. Paired with some 90mm shocks,set half droop, you can achieve basically the same stance...

Flex isn't everything... a well planted rig, with droop can perform amazing!
