Not sure i like how far away the mounting point on the chassis rail is. Look to me like it would bend the fixing bolt pretty easily...

With cantilever installed why haven't they nixed the old shock towers, should they not be redundant then.
That should make it possible to move things in 3 mm or so.
Maybe the body are held in place by those ( just go to prove for how long time i have not used regular body mounting options )
And that i don't own a TRX4

they are only needed for the stock body posts, which i assume you won't use with a flatbed setup where this setup is normally used.

Yeah i read that flatbed part on the listing at RC mart, but you sure as hell are not going to fit on a deep flat bed with those posts there.


If i was in this ballgame which i am not,,,,

Then i think i would be tempted to widen the frame rails in the back some how or make double frame rails, so i could get the shocks on the inside of the outer rail and maybe outboard the connection point for the lower push rod to the portal housing.


Seem to me its all very narrow

I could see using this suspension if you were building a caged rear truggy. Otherwise I don't see the need for a cantilever setup.
