I would start with 0B roll centers, Silver 20mm Springs F/R and 400 cst with 3x1.1 mm pistons. Work from there.

Hi christian, Do you have any idea if the Tamiya IFS bodies will fit the AE with the new lowered shock towers?

How short are they? It probably is just a matter of getting the right spacing for them.

On another note, we have progress on Foam Bumpers. We are currently waiting on some quotes.

We will have at least 3 variations again, TC6, XRAY (T4) and Blank.

Christian, the spool cups look like they turn out great like the rest of your products. I will be picking mine up tonight along with the TC6 conversion.

What's your take on how the car handles with the conversion?

You won't be able to run higher than 1b roll centers properly, but with all our testing the car works best with 3A and 0B roll center blocks. The shorter shocks increase reaction time and generate much more corner speed. The on power steering is pretty obscene with the shorter shocks. So much so that I am finally liking a gear diff with 1 million cst oil to reduce some steering.
Here is the description above

Omg, please tell me you have plans to release a short shock conversion for the T3 as well. I've seen Kyosho short shock towers and now the TC6s, too. Please make them!!! I'll be the first to buy a set!

Not likely to make them for the T3, since it is an older gen car, I am afraid the demand would not be sufficient to justify a production run of them. Sorry.

vctr1, yes the tower conversions are on the site now.

Got my t4 springs in.
I also went for the slick machined pistons.
Can't wait to battle it out with you Saturday

Excited to see what your 6.1 will do with some shorties.
