Default How to put DuraTrax oil shocks on a New Bright

Here's a crash course/quick refresher tutorial to add DuraTrax shocks to a New Bright...

REMOVE SPRING SHOCKS:





ACQUIRE REAL (OIL) SHOCKS:



POP OUT 3mm BEARING IN OIL SHOCKS, you won't need it for the application:



CUT BOTTOM MOUNTING POST T-BARS:



GET APPEARANCE TO THIS:



DRILL YOUR HOLES... don't bother with the one for the MAX plate (the 1/8" hole), it's model specific:





SWING YOUR SHOCK ONTO THE BOTTOM POST AND SECURE WITH FLAME RIVETING:



SECURE THE UPPER MOUNT OF THE SHOCK TO THE TUB:



...AND YOU'RE DONE!!!



ONE, CUSTOM KE4QPF BLUE STREAK MONSTER TRUCK.
