XRM stock shock tutorial

ok, ther is no tut on this, so here goes...

basically this will allow you to bolt the xrm shock the same way as a stock shock...

the first picture is showing what it should look like when your done...

open the rest of the pictures in order, and there are detailed arrows and explanations integrated in to the pictures....

and yes it jumps from pict 6 to 9...
if it does not look like the first pict than you did somthing wrong...

if anyone has any suggestions or comments please feel free to add them...

it depends on what your application is... if you are looking to do modest off roading, some decent size rocks or uneven surface.. then yes... personally for me rock climbing or offroading i stick with the super swampers or the xrms, hands down the best... the store has the super swampers in stock, and arch posted somewhere on another thread that there are only 2 sets left... so you might wanna hop on that, if you are looking for maximum ground clearance with the scale look, also rocking these big tires will fry your frets, so you will need to upgrade those... but with the super swampers i can drive my truck through recently cut grass, an impossibility with the lego tires, and stock fets,

the lego tires on the enzo offset wide wheels sticks out a little on the side, and when it is moving the tires look hella scale...

if you check on line you can get these lego tires for about 20 cents a piece... i bought a grip of them for hella cheap... it turns out with enzo rims and lowered, the lego tires are awesome for drifting on rough cement... lots of fun if your into that.... but you eat through the soft rubber when you use it on cement like that....

hope that helps...

if you look at the bottom of the shock, the stock portion, you will notice, that the shocks on the front, have a longer extension to them...

so the fronts should always be shorter..

if you want them the same length all the way around, you will have to pick up a second set of shocks...

i put the longer ones on the front, to help it hop up easier... softer lesser preload, hope that helps

for less than 6bucks you should have gotten two... lol spare parts are alwys nice...

since the xrm tires are wider than the rim they will look funny, cut the back part off, and you can pop them on and off like hubcaps so it looks more scale....

but be careful, if you do not have stacked FET's you can easiliy fry them using those bigger tires...

don't forget to use the front bumper, and to keep the wheels along with the tires to make hubcaps...
