Klinik RC universal pro droop system

One of the most critical adjustments on 1/8 Buggies and Truggies is droop. After doing months of research with all the available tools on the market Klinik RC feel there was a better way. Some were almost 1mm off from advertised measurements, inconsistent and frankly poor quality. They wanted a system that is precise, consistent, super simple, small and lightweight for hauling. Measuring shock length only goes so far. The inconsistencies possible in hubs, arms, links, left to right and front to back is incredible. Tighten up your race program with Klinik RC’s universal pro droop system. This set works on both Buggy and Truggy and no other pieces need to be purchased. Machined from premium 3mm carbon fibre, weighs close to nothing and fits in the palm of your hand. The system comes with a super handy pouch to store components when not in use. “0” on the gauge indicates the centre of the axle is set to the bottom of the chassis, “+” indicates droop above the chassis, while “-” indicates droop below the chassis. Very simple.
