Default Baja SS wheel rubbing and Shock Collars

Hey Guys,

I looked and looked and could not find any answers in the forum by searching so I am posting my questions. I just built my Baja SS and have run about two tanks and have these findings.

1. Any ideas on how to stop the baja ss shock collars from riding up on their own?

2. The rear arms at the lower shock mount rub the wheels when it lands a little on an angle to the side and it compresses the wheel up higher than the chassis bottom. Is there a fix for this or is HPI working on this one?

Just those two questions, any help would be great.

Thanks, Mike

1) New o-rings in the collars.

2) Axle extenders.

i always thought that the SS had solved the problem of the rear wheels rubbing on the shock

I've got about 2 tanks in the car and the collars started moving from new, I don't think the o-rings are worn out and I wouldn't want to be changing those all the time. Is there some idea anybody is using to stop them from riding up.

The only thing I can suggest is to use plastic shock spacer clips, OR change the o-rings for fatter ones. I never had that problem, I must say. Strange.

Another option I just thought of, but a bit more expensive... get another full set of adjusting collars and double them up. bet that would work and probably look quite cool too.
