Just realize this is an industry deal not just AE. How long after lipo was fully implemented did it take all manufacturers to release lipo friendly chassis...including the "luxury model" Xray?? How many lipo chassis did Exotec sell in the mean time?? The manufacturers HAVE to be cautious on if this change will truly stick before spending the $$ to re-tool and sell or they and the consumer all loose. So, you / we buy aftermarket or whats available till then. Manufacturers priority is 1) Profit = $$ 2) a winner-- while racers is 1) a winner 2) cost = $$ (often not always), this leaves the short window for aftermarket.

As I understand it-- rear bumper and keep rear of car body stabilized (resistance to downforce body distortion), and bulkhead re-enforcement.

It is not really a shock tower, but it is a piece that might be an option part soon to help minimize body tucks as Jeff pointed out. I have not seen an update in a while about the availability if at all.

Very nice looking job. How much rear tow are you running? Looks like possibly a bit more then you'll want.

good eye,
in the first pic it is too much, it was 4.5
now it is 3.5

as i m using alu spacers it is a bit different from box set up as the ale spacers only come 1mm and 2mm while plastic are 3 dimensions...
so i was doing some adjustment!
