Got ya, don't recall seeing shock lengths, just the 1mm spacing on the shafts.

Well I certainly don't mind waiting behind the stores getting theirs first...not when I saved $75 over street price.

first mark in length, 2nd mark, clush with shaft etc...
I dont see specifics on setup sheets
just shock lengths
thanks
the aluminum rear bulkhead on Tys car , im sure that is custom milled right?
The markings are 1mm per ring, to help make adjustments for droop.

The silver "bulkhead" on Ty's car was one of the changes to the kit from the prototypes.

It's referred to in the parts list as the "Camber plate".

Originally it was planned to be Carbon Fiber, but it proved to be too fragile, and they made one of alloy for Ty's rig... now the kit is coming with a black anodized alloy camber plate.

So you put the buggy in your cart, go through checkout process, sign up for super saver and it will immediately give you a code to use on that order?
Sign up on the email list, I haven't made a purchase at Tower in years but I get big discount codes every month. I don't know if you need to make a small purchase to get the best codes but I get real good ones. My last purchase was about four years ago and right now I have a code for $48 off of a $400 purchase. It does say code only good from my email address or I would gladly give it to you.

I prefer buying from amainhobbies.com, right now I have a $50 coupon on $500. I'm going with them, I get much faster service in my neck of the woods. I'll buy the kit 1 or 2 sets of tires and hopefully some parts, won't be hard to get my cart too $500.

I have a fair few things in my Tower cart and it's close to $900 but that gives me $150 off which I guess means I get my kit at $279 lol, but I have to pay a large shipping fees to Australia so it evens out, but I get a lot of other bits I need in the process.

Also does anyone in the know know if proline have their body close to available now that the kit is days away?

Cheers
