After bending. The lowers on the SW2 should measure just under 4 1/4" to the center of the rod ends. The lowers for the SW3 will measure just under 4" to the center of the rod ends.

So... Bender.. In all of the Shaggin' Wagons you are running the same style stick pack! Do you have something else up your sleeve? or does that config just rock in your opinion?

i cant speak for anyone else here, but i have tried a couple of different ways to mount my stick pack, and having it up front is the best way. I might get a fat rock servo mount though to get the cg lower.
But i have not got to try a pack were i could put 4 cells up front and 3 in the back, that might be a pretty good set up. just my .02

I like running standard stick packs. I think the extra weight helps, over the smaller lighter packs. I may try running a lighter pack in the future though, since I've never run one.

With my SW3 I have tried running a custom 6,7, and 8 cell AA pack, a custom 4 up front 2 in the back sub c, and a 2100 lipo pack. They all seemed to screw up it's climbing ability. IMO the regular old 6 cell sub c is the way to go. It plants the weight up front where you need it and gives a little center weight also.

I DID however switch to the Fat Rock battery/servo mount, that made a BIG differance!

so does the sw3 come with links that are bent. if you bend the links on your own how do you get them equal length? does the sw3 have to have bent links?

It doesn't have to have bent links, but it helps in the clearance department. I bent mine in a vice.
