Dif­fer­ent Strokes Sus­pen­sion

RC Car Action - - PERFORMANCE TEST -

The BOM’S shocks are thread­ed­body alu­minum units with sin­gle-rate springs and a dual-cap de­sign, which makes it easy to ac­cess the dual O-ring seals. The top caps thread into the 10mm bod­ies in­stead of over them for a more scale look, and the com­pleted dampers are smooth op­er­a­tors—ev­ery brand gets shocks right nowa­days. The front shocks are stood up and mounted to plas­tic tow­ers on the chas­sis—no sur­prises. But in the rear, things get in­ter­est­ing. Shock length is just 66mm (ver­sus 88mm for the fronts), and the shocks tuck in along­side the frame rails. To achieve full travel with the short shocks, rocker arms con­nect the shocks to the axles. Trick, and def­i­nitely dif­fer­ent.
