Default tires hitting shocks

I have a txt based crawler but everytime it flexes my tires hit the shock so I was going to run the shocks on the inside of the frame anyone else done this?

Haven't tried inside the frame shocks, don't see why you can't. What wheels are you running? Deep backspacing? Maybe try narrowing the rims a bit? I can only guess as to the size rim you have, but if you havn't done so already, I would try that as an alternative to moving the shocks, just to see if it helps.

I tried inside the frame and had some binding issues so I narrowed my wheels instead. Let us know the results.

You could buy some wheel adaptors or do what bender did on his Roctapus and make a mount on the front of your chassis and mount some savage shock from the axle up.
