Convert your Hornet or Grassopper's rear suspension to a 4 link setup.
Requires the folloing items to complete.
1pcs________25mm M3 Hex coupling
Socket Cap Screws:
There are 2 ways you can make the links.
1- use bent rod ends with a straight threaded rod(easiest)
2- Use some M3 threaded rod and bend each end approximatly 45° to use with regular rod ends(this is how I made theones in the pictures and video.
Special note... If you want to use a Silver can or similar length motor you will need Offset Ball Ends with bent threaded rods to clear the motor. I suggest using a rebuildable motor as they tend to be shorter and will not get in the way.
Either way you wil need rods of these lengths mesured center to center, hole to hole:
2pcs____Upper links --- 53mm
2pcs 80mm Center to center small bore shocks like these,
1- On the rear shock tower arms there is a part in the center that needs to be removed.
2- Depending on the body you are using you will need to trim around the rear Shock towers to clear room for the new extentions. 6x12x4mm Spacers(I used Clod Buster plasctic Bushings) are needed on the rear for the Grasshopper body mounts(See pics)
