I was silly for using the plastic shafts with a spool but didn't have any hopups yet as this was the first time I ran the car. They will not hold up to a spool.

In that paticular picture, those are BMI shock towers. The BMI towers have a mount built into them so you can use Xray rear body mounts.

Since the shims are available in 7 colors and 7 sizes some industrious racers are color coding the sizes

Either that or we were out if that particular size in Purple when Jon ordered them...lol!
