Just a wee update.

I got in my shock towers, heatsinks, and screws today. Now I am just waiting for my bmi chassis, alloy diff covers, and I think thats it.

don't think you will be needing the lead weight next to the esc

how does the weight of the 3raqcing towers+braces compare to the stock towers?

Hey thanks guys.

I was thinking that I should pick up a scale so I can keep my eye on the weight of the car as I do little things here and there to it.

As for the weight of the diff covers I am not sure, but they're going to look kewl.

O and I am also waiting on the pdub to show up.

btw RDR, car looks good.

Wicked, car looks nice. How do you like those CF shock towers?

I would replace those JACO foams you have on your car. Not to knock on Jaco or anything but at my local track, almost everyone ditched them and went to Parma's. Trust me, Parma's are wayyy better.

Hey mann thanks, but give it a week and then I'll have my bmi

The towers are nice. They look allot better but thats it. They don't give you any more options then the stock ones do. Not like the prp ones. I mainly just picked them up for the looks factor.

Thanks for the heads up on the parmas. I may have to pick up a set to give them a try.

What's a good color combo for Parma foams on carpet, my Jaco's keep crackin, and I would like to try something else.
