Default Front suspension range

Hey all. New here. I have been building and destroying my yeti for the whole summer. First rc build and I am having a blast.

I have recently decided to upgrade the front almost completely. Since my rebuild, I can't seem to get any range from it.

When the shock are installed, I cannot get it to bottom to the ground as before. They get fully compressed. The shock are powerstroke rear slash. When i disconnect the shock it bottoms.

In the other direction.it maxes when the chubs interferes with the a arm.

I am doing something wrong? In can I increase the range with the shocks installed?

Thanks for the help.

Your shox are to long for the yeti front, they are 102mm, the yeti uses org. 90mm shox front.

I still use my og icons, so i have no expierence with power stroke front shox. I just compared the length.

I tried the power stroke rear shox, they fit but i never get them to work on my little monster. so they are in the shelf now and the icons back on my little monster.

Vanquish also makes this.

It might help.

I use the Slash rear Power Strokes on the front of my Yeti. I made some short extensions for the upper shock mounts out of some left over Losi parts I had.

Pretty cool mod. I have a original tower left... I could figure something out...

Since yesterday, I removed my upgraded boom racing a-arms and returned to the originals. I have noticed that the interference with the C-Hubs is a lot smaller and increased the range a lot!

Thanks for the help everybody.

That Boomracing doesn't really "extend" the shock tower in a way that would help with longer shocks. If you look closer it has been advertised as a means to avoid bottoming out.

They sell the Proline Slash rear powerstrokes for Yeti because quite a many Yeti drivers don't want their Yeti to Bottom out....I don't like that kind of a setup, always want my rigs to be able to bottom out.

To this day I haven't seen any ready made solution, but I've also put an extra piece on the shock tower to extend it to make it able to bottom out...and thats on a score with smaller diameter tires. So either extend your tower, or switch to slash front powerstrokes.
