I am currently doing a whole new suspension setup on my Torment. I am trying to achieve a Trophy truck kind of suspension. This will not be for big jumps, but rather going over rough terrain at high speeds. My current thoughts:
  • Use traxxas big bore shocks or ECX alu shocks in the rear
  • Use ECX rear shocks in the front with no preload spacers, light weight shock oil and soft springs (the front of the torment has some weights to it to balance out the heavier rear)
  • Stance will be - rear parallel to the surface, front slightly angled upwards
Any thoughts and input?

For all I know the torment won’t work good for a trophy truck set up. Trophy trucks have a solid back axle and a completely different suspension design than 2wd full independent suspension vehicles.

And their usually fwd

Best bet would be thinner shock oils

Did not mean I want to achieve full on Trophy truck setup (torment chassis not designed that way). Then I would rather get the Traxxas UDR. I installed rear shocks in the front with light oil (Losi 27.5) and rear ECX Alu shocks in the rear. Must say the rear shocks in the front gives massive suspension travel. I still used the shorter front shock springs on the rear shock body with 2 x preload spacers. Did a test run yesterday and was awesome. Front end handled the rough terrain great.

Also interested to know what type of suspension setups other guys use on their Torments.

I believe the long travel suspension with soft springs and light oil will work well for rough loose terrain. You could try getting adjustable camber links for the rear and shorten them to make the car handle better on dusty stuff.
