Hey Paul...I kept staring at it trying to figure out what was wrong, then it hit me...you mounted your body mount posts with the aluminum prts to the rear upper shock mount, not with the kit piece..probably because you had the same problem I did...with the Mazda 6 body the posts end up under the wing, and its a booger to get the body clips on and off...

good idea...I think I may even have some of those from a previous kit...

Why do the new MI2's I keep seeing from factory drivers never using the Schumacher shocks? It don't seem like it promotes how good the kit is if you need to run Tamiya shocks.

Teemu Lieno started it all. He wanted really short shocks on the Mi2 Prototype so he ran Tam shocks and he never changed back. The rest of the team followed. You will find that the Factory Losi Drivers (Francis, Kinwald, Hodge, etc.) and some Associated Factory drivers(Karup when he won the Euros) followed Teemu's lead and also run Tam shocks.

The Schu shocks work just as well as the Tam shocks but are a little more work to get toghter. The Tam shocks are a slap them together in 5 minutes and they are perfect type deal.

We will have some all new shocks coming this October for the Worlds. They are an all new design for us and in testing are very good. PW and AC will have some prototypes in a few weeks. If they are as good as the testing is showing you will probably see our shocks on everyone elses cars this fall

simply put, Im currently running Tamiya shocks as the standard shock bodies dont allow enough travel, epecially when using the low profile towers,,,I got used to the extra work involved with the kit shocks over the years, and it hadnt really bothered me, but I admit there is a knack to building them consistently...

Tamiya shocks are currently the best on the market....but from what I have been told, this is all about to change with the release of the new schumacher shocks,,I will be putting them straight on the car!.
