Just in case anyone was thinking of getting them, the following shows the original front Mi3 shock mount on top of one of the lowered items.
Both have 4 mounting holes but the lowered shock tower has them much further apart.

Give it a try, the first time you can't believe how much faster it seems.
Driving style is usually the same, no brakes, roll through corners etc.

Met Shawn and Robin today at iHobby Expo here in Chicago.

They had a LW bulkhead car with them and a bunch of Speed Passion stuff as well. The LW car looked pretty trick in black. The Speed Passion motors/esc should be awesome to run.

I think their big hit will be the East Coast half painted and unpainted bodies. Those were very nice. The Evo9x IMO is a sharp styled body and I plan to run it for rubber tires when it comes stateside...

Its mainly for foam tire carpet racing. Since foam tires are run way smaller (~56mm vs. 63mm for rubber) the suspension has to extend more to get 4-5mm ride height. The shocks are lowered so they are in the proper part of thier up and down travel stroke with the more extended suspension.

Another benefit of the lower towers is that you can run your body a lot lower. There are no body height rules on carpet with foam tires so you can slam it down as low as you can.

I have been told that having the lower shock towers means the shock piston starts part way through the oil, instead of traveling right from the end, this allows smoother/more linear shock movement.

AdrianM is also right about foam racing, hence some of the holes allow you lean the shocks over a lot more.

I have two cars now, one with and one without and you can feel and see the difference.
The shocks with the lowered also seem to return to their start position with a more linear motion, move your suspension arms up by hand then let go and you notice that they slow down just before reaching their full extension (with the standard towers).

Yeah, this is key. Because I noticed with the standard height shock towers, a body like the Mohawk sits right on top of the towers just to get it at the proper height.

Say, whats the part number for the lower towers? Front and Rear.

Thanks

Question for the parts guru's...

I blew up an outer axle during todays racing and McGoo hooked me up with a spare to get me back in business.

I was looking for the PN to get a spare (Anything I break once I plan on breaking again...) but there's no breakout of the CVD assembly on the parts explosion. An old message in this thread shows U3234, but the Schuey site isn't finding it. Unfortunately, I managed to throw out the bag tag as well.

It looks like it's the only bit of the CVD assembly that isn't available individually.

U3233 Bone; Alloy CV Driveshaft 1pc
U3026 Pivot; Pin & Screw; Alloy CV D/Shaft

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Chris
