    how do you adjust ride height on your street or sedan nitro car? do you use the shock clips or change the weight of your oil? please help.
  2. Change your spring, nothing to do w/ oil, oil is the return rate

    ya, oil weight and i gess clips, are tuning things used for how hard or soft your car leans when ur turning, i gess the only way u can adjust ur ride hieght is taller springs, but that usually means taller shocks too. so goood luck.

    sedans arent usually messed with in the ride hieght department anyway....

    some cars have a ride height hole in the lower suspension arm. You can screw a long hex screw into the hole which in turn presses on the chasis and reduces the ride height. make sure both sides and ends are the same on each side. A couple of my cars have this feature( rs43 and kyosho fw05) others do aswell. A general rule is when you reduce the ride height take a preload spacer out so that the car doesnt get bouncy due to the lower ride height. A lower car corners better and has less body roll up until the point where it will get very loose because of the lack of body roll. hope that helps.
