The cheapest I have seen the universals for was around $45 a pair, however you only need 1 pair, and the motor mount was $25-$30 I believe..... tower may be cheaper, but I don't know.....

Yep! doing what I did you can use side by side packs and hardwire them or use Corally style plugs (if you use the last, install them in the battery bar you've bent previously).

Well you don't really need rearuniversals, as they don't do much movement and there is mininmal advantage over the dogbones....

Ordering from HK can be cheaoer, but sometimes the cost of shipping cancels out the shipping........

AE racer,

Do you mind tell us which HK shop do you buy your stuff from?... do they have a website?

Thanks

I have a Pro BE, do you think that by changing the FRP lower deck to a Carbon tub similar to the R, the handling will change dramatically?

Yes, it will stiffen up your chassis and you suspension will be able to function more effectively. As a side effect it will probably make the car heavier.

there is a reinforced chassis with slots for the battery!

I think that is much better than the other aftermarket chassis for the tao4, the extra weightis okay since there is an improve handling.

my two cents worth
