How do you make sure that you have the same shock angle from side to side? Does it shift positions in a hard impact? They look sweet though.

If you look in the second pic you can see the marks in the tower for locating.

There are markers etched into the tower every 2 degrees. You can kind of see them in the pic of the rear tower. I don't know if there's a chance of them shifting since I don't have mine yet

they have not shifted on me yet.i am hoping that they will slip under real hard shot and avoid breaking like they do now.they are 3mm carbon fiber so that will hopefully keep them from breaking.i ran a full day of racing with an 8x2 and they didnt move yet.i will let you know how they work this weekend after the races.another test and tune day

Default new chassis

i was wondering if bmi was going to release the chassis the paul and the guys have been running, or is schumacher going to do one on their own?

i like the pics of the new shock towers. i like the rear on with the body mount holes in them.

All right guys I need your help.

Tonight my order from schumacher came. I got the low shock towers, turnbuckles, and battery posts. I was all excited to finally get my show body on the car. Well!!! it turns out that my saleen body still dosn't fit.

Can you guys lmk what bodies will fit on this car? I am looking for a sporty body, something like maybe a rx8?
