Am I to assume that you will need this new shock tower to get in on this new action?
The tamiya shocks just build easier...makes getting them airless much easier than with losi shocks. Plus you can tune them with stiffer or softer bladders. You will need the prp tower since the tamiya shock is longer.

Since you are buying them anyway, might as well spend the extra few bucks now and get the Flourine.

You can do it all with the stock setup right out of the manual, we are just trying to make it better.

JKerr: What did you end up with on the setup last weekend (if you don't mind me asking)? I would be interested in any info to try on my car this weekend with the spool.

Anyone:
I may also give the one-way another try since I have never been one for brakes. Any setups along those lines would also be helpful.

Right now I am fairly close to Hodapp's setup from last summer but I still have too much push into and in the middle of the turn. Its taking away some of the advantage of the spool since I can't lay down the power until too late.
