I've only tried the C tower for one day and I don't think it was necessarily "better", but it did turn more while using the same tower mounting hole. I'm going to keep trying it and experimenting. It definitely was not any "worse" than the B tower.

I thought running the C tower had to do with rear hub height, not the lower shock mounting position?

thats what i thought too vinny until i did more reading. it has to do with using that inside shock mount. trying to see if it makes much of a difference

The C tower helps maintain the correct droop when using the lower inside hole. It is in the first page.

Not sure anyone else has bought or seen these but I just ordered a set.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/HB-D413-Grap...:X:AAQ:US:1123

At less than 1/2 the price of the HB ones takes the sting off buying a set to try.
Will post first impressions when I get them, should be a week or two.

Ordered up some Kyosho Grooved O-Rings for my shocks when I start the build, can somebody confirm they will work?

The price difference comes from HB's stiffners are carbon fiber, the ones you posted are graphite

Thanks, bds. I'm going to put the stock black sway bars back on it for the race coming up on the 8th and see what it does. I'm also going to put 5 dot ackerman arms on it since they are part of the Tessman setup I'm using but I didn't have them.

Might play around with my tires some but not sure. Our track gets setup before the races and is torn down after so there isn't much opportunity to practice or tune.

Good Q! My guess is with only one bolt each side and mounts offset.

You cant do that cause those same screws also hold the shock tower on.

Has anyone used the RCShox ackerman bar? Ordered one hoping to reduce some steering slop.
