Standard dampers: the deflection of the short internal springs begins far above the vehicle weight (grey), the spring pressure increases disproportionately in the further course and will limit the damper travel to 7 mm when the springs are completely compressed.
crawlster®D18 TUNING-KIT: the deflection of the external 4.5 x longer outer tuning springs (S=soft) starts below the vehicle weight (grey), the spring pressure remains also with increasing compression almost linear and allows full damper travel of 10 mm
Readings per (1) spring; vehicle-weight incl. LiPo w/o axles and wheels = approx.290 g / 4 = ca. 72g / spring
crawlster® D18-components are shown in YELLOW –also available in RED and BLACK.

RC4WD Gelände Chassis
The crawlster®D18 TUNING-KIT creates the decisive conditions for the fundamental optimization of dampers + steering
Here are 2 additional TIPS ....
...for the cautious
Mount the front/lower links"inside"
to get more freedom of steering -
exspecially when using more voluminous tires
such as the Goodyear WRANGLER MT/R 1
...for the brave ones
Carefully* (!), laterally obliquely milled out the bone slits with a cutting disc in the lower area by about 1-1.5 mm – brings another, visibly improved steering angle (* at your own risk)
"...the performance increase is enormous, I always find it amazing what ideas the crawlster®team comes up with!..."
