    Would making the front shocks have longer travel ( putting on a set of rear length shafts) make off road handling better or worse? It seems to me that more travel would be better just because the tires would be on the ground more but IDK if there is a geometry reason for the front shocks being shorter than the rear.

    I believe the front shocks may be shorter so that the car handles corners better in a short course race. Don't quote me on this but I think that may be the reason. If you are just bashing then this shouldn't create a problem for you.

    Don't but rear shocks in the front because if you do when you jump it you may break the arm

    rear shocks up front help alot worse thing you will have to do is adjust the shock to acount for a lttle extra body roll in the turns
