Can those towers be used with normal shocks? and what would be the effect?

Are there any other parts improving tha car on carpet?

(ps PW can i order directly from schumacher usa from europe?)
Alloy rear hubs are ment to be great fine tunning rear toe in & the camber link is on top like on the mission.

The lower shock towers are for the tamiya as far as im aware. not sure about for the new shocks but id presume so...

& a spool will work well on nearly every style of track.... dependin on how twisty it is .

Do the alloy susp arm mounts change the standard toe in of the rear?
Yeh, the rear alloy rear hubs allow more fine tuning tho

do you just swap the L and R blocks front to rear to get the toe change?

one more question, did anyone else have to add a .5mm shim under the alloy susp mount block to keep the arm from hitting the chassis?

Spool should be good with rubber tires, but would use a tight diff (heavy grease, not tighten screw) with foam tires.

Towers work great for all shocks, but when using the stock shocks you will need to shorten then 4mm (2mm off ball-cup & 2mm off shaft).

The thicker Teemu chassis or the new BMI chassis will be great for carpet.

Schumacher UK handles all european accounts.

I think you need to ignore the L & R on the blocks because those blocks were originally for our old off-road car.

I ended up filing a lil bit off that pivot on the arm, everything is good now... love the kwik klips... do you guys have any small containers, something like 35mm containers, but a lil smaller to keep all those shims in?

it's like riding a bike.....and to show you that I still got it I'm going to paint myself a body with the old paint scheme that I made for you... remember the white front end with the flames going from dark purple to a lighter purple? yeah.....I thought you knew who daddy was, is, and always shall be!!!! I can't wait for this weekend. With the weather all florida like (pun intended) everyone should be indoors this weekend. I might even run stock along with 19 turn. You'll have to cover mod while Mo is gone.
