Well the shocks I have not found any that fits! But on the wave runner it's pretty easy to set up the suspension so that the car runs pretty darn good despite the lousy shocks, but keep in mind the rear will bottom out a lot!
But put on some 1\10 scale buggy wheels on the rear and problem solved!

I run my buggies on grass, so, clearance is necessary. The 12428 seems to handle it well, but finding "good" shocks is hard, as I mentioned. There is a guy who knows buggies and trucks who will be looking to improve the 12429 version. I don't know if any of what he plans will apply to either one of our vehicles. The 12429 is derived from the JJRC Q46 (a copy of a copy of a ....)

Possibly the most modified l979's in the world?


Id like to share my heavily modified 5+ year old Wltoys l979. I only treat this old lady very well now, no hard bashing. Just zipping around. The spares are getting rare

List of mods:b
-threaded aluminium oil shocks
-sealed ball bearings all around
-steel dogbones
-adjustable rear upper swing arms
-surpass hobby 2848 2800kv brushless motor
-flycolor 90A boat esc (i ccurrently dont have another suitable esc)
-a crappy 20kg servo (fake MG996R, needs a swap)
-flysky GT3C radio system
-carbon rod reinforced front shock tower
-3s 1800mah lipo (can take bigger)

This is my first and only RC car i have since 11-years-old. Now im 16. My friend also has one (less used and bought one year later), which has very similiar modifications.

I also made a plaster mold of the body shell so i can make infinite fibreglass canopies!

I hope you like it! Its a great car!
