i did the same thing when i used to play with my kick up. definitely a good way to find the height you want without changing out parts over and over.

great work on making a video.

You mean, a pic of the mod, or a pic from the top ?

To confirm:
Its a bolt through the bottom of the chassis plate with a washer between the bolt and the chassis plate.
Put another washer on the top side of the chassis plate and screw in a nut.
Thread lock the nut in place.
Now you should be able to screw in the suspension blocks to whatever height you require...

Pretty nifty!

Two long screws, two nuts (apply tread lock on them) and a washer between the chassis plate and the nuts.
Cut the suspension mount to allow the nuts to sits back in the suspension mount.

I think it's better to use aluminium suspension mounts cuz they are more solid than plastic ones.

Setting up kick up on the suspension arms without the hassle of unscrewing the suspensionmounts and bitching to get spacers underneath, which ofcourse fall on the ground every. fucking. time. you try to screw the suspensionmount back in.

You can choose to have more weight distributed to the rear or front under acceleration or braking.

Check out Suspension> page 4 on this site: http://users.telenet.be/elvo/

I used to have a different site which explained it for the front and the rear, but i can't find that one anymore :(

I thought the point of lockup was to gain more caster ?

Caster and kickup do totally different things ;) Yes, with a normal RC setup you would also change the caster angle, but there's more to it then adjusting caster alone :)
