Default Stance

So I have lowered my wraith with a shorter shock and mounted me on the middle hole of perch. I'm not super low but I bottom out on everything and scratch the crap out of my belly. Am I just a crappy driver or is it normal to scrape bottom when crawling? I'm also not getting a ton of articulation, I'm using the stock spring just a tiny bit shorter shock I got from a buddy.

You're more likely to drag the belly when you're lower to the ground. Careful driving will avoid it sometimes but not always. Less articulation is better so that's not necessarily a bad thing. If it crawls well and suits your driving style leave it alone.

It's called a skid plate for a reason.

It's a skid plate us it. I have mine with the stock shocks super soft springs. Then i moved to the innermost upper mount. I like a 3/4 droop set up. When you hit your skid the front will drop and you can get some traction.

The lower links will get scratched because they are exposed pretty easily to rocks, etc... Get the tallest tire you can and that will help bring the Wraith up a bit!
