RC Maker 3D Pro touring car shock restrictor set

Coming from RC Maker is their new 3D Pro touring car shock restrictor set. The shock restrictors can be used for two main functions: Getting perfect weight balance on your chassis using scales and de-tweaking the car’s shock towers. The shock restrictors make balancing the chassis on the scales easier than ever. With mid motor touring cars being more reliant on weight distribution than ever, it is important to be able to get an accurate reading on the front to rear, and side to side balance of the car. These restrictors slot into low profile shock shaft, and fix the resting shock distance of the car to 7mm. This is roughly a normal ride height setting on most chassis, and turns the shock into a “turnbuckle” at ride height. This removes any impacts the spring shock collar pressure has on the reading of the weight distribution and gives the actual reading of weight on all 4 corners of the car.

Secondly, these are a great tool to de-tweak the shock towers. With the infinitely small tolerances placed on touring cars today, even having something out by 0.5mm can be felt on the track. Thats why it is super important to make sure the shock towers are perfectly tweaked. Slotting in the shock restrictors makes the resting distance between all four shocks fixed, isolating them and putting all reading through to the shock tower. Once these are installed, drivers can simply lift either end of the car to check the tweak of the opposite end’s shock tower, and visa versa. Once the tweak is detected, simply loosen the shock tower screws and twist the correct way to bring the opposite end wheels into leaving the ground at the same time. This will be the cause of some of the chassis tweaks, and removing it at the source is the best possible way to fix it. Adjusting shock collars to counteract a twisted shock tower is only a cover-up of the source of the problem. The shock restrictors come in a small branded laser engraved screw-lid tin for easy storage.
