Thanks. I'll be running stock and rubber tires on carpet. No spool, but probably a one-way a little later.

Dont shorter shocks like TRF, require new shock towers and riser plates?

You can use the TRF shocks with the old towers aswell, the shocks comes with longer ball cups aswell. The riser plates require short shocks and teemu towers, not the other way around :-)

You don't need the low towers, yes they are better, but you can run the std towers with schumacher ball joints on the trf shocks to give them more length.

You only need new risers if you want to run the raised transmission and then you need the Teemu towers also.

Thanks for clearing things up. One Q though, what's the advantage of the Teemu riser plates and shock towers? www.racing-cars.com aint particular clear about stuff like this... or I've looked at the wrong place ?

EDIT: Ian anserved my Q, while I was typing

Those washers should go under your battery strap posts to raise the strap to the height it would normally be at with the battery tray.

Did you get the whole Teemu conversion (ie: new riser plates too?). As I understand it, the little black washers go on top of the steering bellcranks to raise the long steering posts so that the heads still fit in the holes of the top deck once it's been raised with the new risers.
