2 weeks ago the first time I ran the car I had 35 in front 30 in the rear.The car wouldn't go threw the chacane with out me waiting to get the power down I was waiting to get the turn made before the sweeper. I changed to 32.5 in the front and the car was much better transitioning in the lead on to the sweeper. The track this week will have fast chicanes and you need to have the car shift weight quickly. See you tomorrow if you need some help I'm there for you!

George, Raceberry makes a low profile shock mounts. You have to get from Toni motorsport in Germany they are $15.00 + shipping. You could getaway with stock shocks with short Tamiya springs.
When I get home I post the web address.

It lowers the cg in the car and a small weight savings. Thevminishocks are the same as the standard TRF shocks. Almost all the new cars are using lowered shock mounts. George is using his 417 in gt class and the front of the bodies are much lower then a touring car.

I haven't found any others. I asked RSD to start making them. I have some RSD lowered shock mounts on my TC6.1 and it made no noticable difference. I bought them to race gt bodies. So no not worth it.

Does anybody have a .5 spacer I can buy I want to raise my top deck but don't want to spend $8+ for a set of four when I only need one. Or is there another alternative?

Just received my TRF servo mount and I was wondering the hole on the side is it there to put another belt tensioner and if so do I just buy the same bearings that the top tensioner has?
