    i cheated
    lol ... i had floating shock mounts .. they gave stupid flex but let the truck flop with the heavy Hard body . worked ok with my honcho body . so i have secured my shock mounts I am running 120mm 1/8 scale hot racing shocks ( internal spring)... they are a pain to fit and mount . and were a pain to get a good setup out of them but i figured them out.

    in order to fit them to my scx10 axles i had to use my Dremel tool to grind down the lower ball mounts to make them more narrow.
    then to get a good stance and flex i cut the springs in half .then i use half the spring on top of the plunger and half on bottom so the shocks rest about half travel . ( im using hard top soft bottom springs for the hard body) ( medium top soft bottom works for the soft body )

    it will still flex that far but in the pic .( with the floating mounts
    ... if i removed the body it would flex way further to a full 90 degrees between the front and rear axle
