Is there any 4 wheeled vehicle in this world that doesn't use any springs and shocks?

Yes? No?

Re: springs and shocks?

Some stick crawlers have no suspension.

Oh, I see and this is my story...

Recently, I got scammed by a local hobbyist named Jack (I won't say his last name). He won't even refund me even after a few hours after the purchase.

I brought a customized off road vehicle built on a Tamiya F350 chassis, but when I got home I realized it was missing the shocks & springs.

At first, he told me it doesn't need any, because it will make the truck goes wobble on a flat terrain. Then after a few heated exchange, he said if I get the original Tamiya parts and it will fit.

Guess what!?! It didn't!

I was very upset and tried to believe him, but in the end I couldn't find any military application that doesn't use springs & shocks, hence the weird question!

Re: springs and shocks?

The truck pictured does appear to have springs....leaf springs.

But no shocks visible.

Re: springs and shocks?

I have a built a couple crawlers without shocks and just springs, the shocks are only there to stop the bounce, I would try some rc4wd shocks with internal springs, those should work for you.

Re: springs and shocks?

Is there actually an issue with how it runs, or do you just feel like it needs shocks because other vehicles have them?
