Default LST shocks and my FG Stadium.

I have a extra set of LST shocks laying around and today I fabbed it to work on my FG Satdium it worked out great , the only problem is that the Yellow springs that I have are way to soft, they were actually worst then the factory dual FG setup.I do have a set of the Red springs I may try tomorrow unless someone can tell me if it's a waste of time between the Yellow and Red.

Please post a pic when you have some time. I would love to see how they look. I have LST red anodized shocks on my Aftershock that I would like to mount to my Firehammer MT sometime.

Do th LST shocks have the alloy adjustable shock bodies?? that way you could put more tention on the springs.

SC, you running the BAJA failsafe on your FG also ? I can't seem to figure out the settings on my Spektrum DX3 radio to get it to work right.

They actually give me more travel then the stock FG, I have the rear turn down to give me more srping, I amgoing to order a stiffer spring and see what happens.

I have a set of the Integy piggy back shocks i tried to fit on my MCD but could not get them to work. i was hoping they would but just not enough room. i have the red springs and they seemed to work fine but i lost 1.5" of travel.

I had problems with the Venom fail safe also since all Spektrum's already have a fail safe they are fighting each other, I had to have the person from where I got my FG from walk me through it.
