Does anyone know what is used as a core material in the carbonfibre shock towers. I don't think they could be solid carbonfibre.

Input always appreciated
If you're going to do a carbon chassis, please do something about the droop system on the XXX-S. Try to come up with a better way. If I were doing it, I'd move the droop screws further outboard from the inner hinge pin, and make sure they're reasonably rigid in their mounting.

Thanks,

Trips

That's because the piston is riding on top of the oil and not in it.

Fire, the rear stock shocks are okay, it's the front that need to be modified. For the front I used the .28" shock shafts with the .36" threaded shock bodies.

How do you use the other camber holes that seem to be the mounting points for the camber links?

i see what you mean now
the shock shafts are too long for the application
does the shorter shafts fit the rear too?? will that be too short?

Team Losi has released an Alpha? 156 touring car body? It's already been approved by ROAR. Anyone know where there's a pic of this on the web?
