Got a part number for those? I looked on Speedtech and Stormer and couldn't find them.

The HPI number is 30004.

For anyone that has any old Schumacher Threaded shocks, you can use the collars from those, the origional short ones are ok.

The EC foam towers look great on the original Mi-2. The shock mounts are over a hole lower than the Schu carpet towers so the shock length had to be adjusted using TRFs.
My question:
How many millimeters higher are the camber link holes on the rear tower of the EC Foam Spec than the Mi-2 Carpet Towers? Im specifically wondering how many mm of spacers I should start with on the rear hub using the lower hole of the new towers if I want to start with something close to what works right now(upper inside). I would prefer to remove .5mm at a time than add, which is all we have been able to do for a while now. I put the towers back to back but am still not sure?

Gee M, I personally wouldnt run either EC rubber or carpet towers on an Mi2, not only are the hole heights different, but their distance to the centreline is greater, to match the Hinge pin spacing on the New E.C.
Notice the camberlink ballstud is located directly above the lower hingepin.

It would be similar to running the outer camberlink holes on the Mi2 towers, which to me always felt funky.
