Ok my Hayabusa King Sand Car is just way too soft!
I'm bottoming out if I get the slightest amount of air and at the bottom transition of every hill. G out I think you guys call it

I ordered rebuild kits 8 and 15 shim stacks and a nitrogen filling setup. Time to get this thing dialed in.

My set up in the front was initially a.
12 stack on Rebound - 10 stack on compression
Front springs are 200 over 250 on King piggyback's
Car weighs 1600 - 1800 lbs with passengers

Called King and they said it seemed like the stacks were backwards and to change it to 10 stack rebound - 12 stack compression and adjust from there.

What is everyone else with King shocks running for valving, springs and nitrogen pressure.
Do the flutter stacks work best for the dunes?

I would love to be able to get this thing a few feet off the ground!!

Every car is different. Every driver has different preferences. Getting a car to handle to your taste is a lot of work with lots of trial and error. If you are serious , buy a master shim kit and dive in! Keep records of what you do each time with notes so you can make intelligent changes.

but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."
