It's pretty dificult to see anything based on the small pictures. If you put the link in as a picture on the forum we may be able to see them better. put [img] link to your picture here [/ img] without the space after the / and it will show up directly in the forum.

Anytime you try to turn a crawler into a more scale looking rig with a chassis setup similar to that, you'll sacrifice articulation...especially with the shocks vertical. There's not a lot you can do to remedy it. A lot of articulation is a hinderance anyway, you don't need a lot of it.

just try the testing area. you can mess up a hundred times and not have to say sorry to anyone...
But on the other hand, you probably wont have anyone helping you out in there

It looks like you could try some longer spacers between the shocks and frame. The shocks bind before anything else so a greater distance between the top mount and bottom mount might help if the turning of the tires dont rub them.The best would be to move the top mounting point of the shock about a half inch closer toward the center of the frame...my 2 cents.
