After the success of my Extreme Offroader V3 I started on my next Offroader. I decided my next offroader would have full suspension. At the time I did not own enough shock absorbers for a full suspension vehicle so, I purchased ten new medium hardness shock absorbers. I started with a truck that had for shocks per axle, eight shocks in all, four in the front, four in the back. As I built I relised that the chassis were not strong enough to handle the stiffness of the shock absorbers so I took it apart and started again. I used two shocks per axle, four shocks in all, two in the front two in the back. As I conducted driving tests I noticed that when I drove it up hill, it would tip to one side and result in a role over. The problem causing this had to do with the shocks. The problem being very common with pendulum suspension trucks, was easy to fix just by doubling up the shock absorbers on each wheel. To my relief the rebuilt chassis were able deal with the doubled up shock absorbers.
