1) Try giving it more rear camber gain by using the 5A hole on the rear shock tower.

2) Try moving the rear shocks inward to the 1B hole.

Both of these settings will help to make the rear end more planted.

That price is a good example for children to let them know drugs r bad. There is another guy who makes these all 4 for $20 USD.

This is the email for the guy rc@nktv.mk.ua..

I could care less if they are titanium if someone is willing to pay that much for 4 shocktower mounts then they are retarded . Not trying to be an ass but that's how I see it. Also why hasn't associated made any of the parts everyone is after? I want them to come out with the inline motor side bulkhead. By the way they sell that for $40 same people from the email above.

You people don't have an idea what quality parts are. The Polish made parts are junk.

You really think $115 a is reasonable, even with the highest quality aluminum they have at best a few dollars worth of materials there. $50 is reasonable, $115, that's rape.
