E Maxx Shock Absorbtion
I read in a magazine once about the E Maxx. It said something like it's bottomless or it doesn't bottom out. I also watched a youtube video of one unboxing and he was pushing it down saying it doesn't want to bottom out. What causes the E Maxx from bottoming out or is it false adv.?
not familiar with the emaxx, but it probably has to do with a-arm travel that is being the a-arms dont move far enough for the vehicle to bottom out
think of a 1/1 car can bottom out, but a large pickup wont bottom out
It doesnt bottom out without alot of force because of rubber shims on the shock shafts.
So that's like putting a piece of fuel line on shock rods so they will soak up the jump? Wouldn't that break a cap off the shock?

i saw that video too. its just because of the bigger tires and the shock position setup. if your doing jumps then it probably will bottom out. also i think it would be better to let it bottom out because if it doesn't it puts more stress on the a arms and the shocks.
