09-08-2012, 02:44 PM
Hello this is my first posted question. I am building Rortys R82 buggy and I plan on useing fox 2.0 airshocks but i need to know what size shocks to get. All the plans say is that the front and rear need 17 inches of shock travel but the back ones have to be larger to clear the wheels etc to the mounting point. I asked Rorty but all he told me was to contact my local fox dealer which there are none around me. Any ideas.

I have 16" in the rear and 14" in the front of my R82.

I do not know, but i know that i've seen numerous builds of Rorty buggys on this site, so do a search and read a little to find out what others have done. Thats what i would have to do to answer your question.
Oh,and welcome to the best buggy site on the net! Really if i knew the answer ,i would tell you.
