For running the lowered towers with Xray springs, I run the Tamiya perches

I'm usually around 61.5mm, and yes, the associated perches work fine. I am actually using some of Tamale's lowered spring perches he made for the FK04!!!! Compliments of Mr. Lai!!!

JB heres what I have used with success for the last few months. I think I followed what goetz recomended a few months back, but not certain it was his advice . . .

Xray springs
AE perches
I cut ~1mm off from the stock, shock ball cups

I have been running my parmas out of the box and can still get to a 4 mm ride height. My shocks are 61.5 mm all around. I have been running the set up McGoo posted a few pages back if theres any need to know the specifics.

I wanted to let everyone know that I have U3169 Ti 55mm Pins back in stock (FINALLY!!!)

Also we still have U2741 Alloy 1 degree rear hubs ready to ship

As well as regular 55mm pins U3142

LW Bulkheads U3255 are ready to go

Dont forget the Core Ti screw kits CR010, Ti ball stud kits CR021

We also have the battery straps U3222, great for strapping down LiPo batteries to the chassis.

A note for the slop-free ball cup fanatics out there. The CORE ballstuds are slightly oversized as compared to stock, so the stock ballcups fit tighter with less slop. This way you dont have to go to the RPM ballcups which lose the integrity of the fit once you pop them off 1-2 times for maintenence.

Now for the foam fanatics, I need some help I'm going to be running mod foam at Snowbirds, gonna start with Goetz' Cleveland setup. So if you're around Chris, what is the difference between the rear hubs on your car and the Schumacher 1 degree hubs.. which mounting hole should I use on the Schuie hub? Any changes you'd make to the setup to make it a little more aggressive for mod, or should it be good as it is? Thanks!

Here's the East Coast Bodies page.

Congrats to Maddison Jimmy, lol.

Those look like some sweet bodies. Its cool they ofer LW versions of all the styles. I am curious to see which colors are prepainted and which are the backgrounds.

I'd like to try a set of those off road buggy tires too!
