So, does the Team Raffee body fit on the stock TRX-4 Defender Chassis?

Will swapping to slightly softer spring rates f/r effectively give you a lowered ride height without switching to a shorter length shock, which I assume would limit the suspension travel range?

I'm having a hard time visualizing this - does someone have a photo of how this is done? I'd like to see if lowering the ride height will help with stability on my Defender (without replacing the shocks).

See the limiter label on this diagram, works the same on all shocks.

Just found this thread - great info on the TRX4 chassis and drivetrain.

Can you comment on motor choice for TRX4 Sport? Does it have the same reduction as the Defender and others?

I had two motors on hand, a Crawlmaster Expert 16T and a Trailmaster 550 21T (it might be a 27T - I always forget to account for the bigger can).
Stock gearing currently, but I probly have some other pinions hanging around.
I ended up installing the Crawlmaster and it runs real nice on 2s, a little fast on 3s, but have not tried the latter in the rocks.

Did I miss the boat using the bigger but cheaper motor? Sure easy to change out.
