Shock Position - Shock Angle --

On many models, there are various mounting positions for the shocks on the shock towers (upper mount) and suspension arms (lower mount), allowing the shocks to be mounted at various angles. Basically, 'laying the shocks down' (mounting them at a more horizontal angle) provides more stability while cornering and quicker response, but sacrifices the model's ability to absorb large jumps or bumps without bottoming out. 'Standing the shocks up' (mounting them at a more vertical angle) allows the model to absorb jumps and bumps better and improves traction, but increases body roll when cornering. When altering shock position, it is best to start with the upper mount (where the change is more noticeable while entering turns). Altering the lower position actually affects the leverage of the shocks, and should be reserved for more dramatic changes.
