I'm using Phi07 lowered shock towers on my HMX and it works flawlessly.Those Phi07 towers are part number 79740. Some people are complaining about insuficient shock lenght and those shock towers could solve most of these issues.
But you can also keep in mind that Corally has a new model of CF Shock Towers made specifically for the HMX. Part number 79761 will be for the front and 79762 for the rear of the car.

I hope this would answer to all your questions.
Hi mate, thanks very much! I understand that the Version 2 kit will be released soon that actually has those parts as standard. I had a go with an old TC for the first time last weekend and really enjoyed it (normally run 12th and GT10) so will be looking at getting one of the V2 HMX's once they are released. Thanks once again

Hi,

The information is correct about the parts. I drive the hmx with just the stock spool. I hope too that the second serie hmx is comming soon! I run the hmx with the optional hmx carbon shocktowers but I had to make them a little longer. I did that with some lexan I had left of cutting body's. Works also and you can drive with the anti rollbars. I thought that the shocktowers you showed on the picture are direct fit also with the roll bars but I didn't had them.

Greetings,
Tim

Rather than using lexan to keep the sway bar bearings in place, I used the kit red shock towers with the "wings" cut off, and put them in front of the lowered phi 07 carbon towers with an extra long screw. So the carbon tower is sandwiched between the bulkhead and the cut shock tower. It works rather well and keeps the bearings perfectly seated.

Hey Jimbo,

I would like to see pictures of your HMX with those cut shock towers. Would it be possible to post pictures of it?
Thanks in advance.

Daniel

Nice! Thank you very much for the picture but I'm not sure that I wanna ''sacifice'' those beautiful alu shock towers, tought! Lol!
So you too are using a Phi07 shock tower? I was able to make them hold the sway bar bearings with no aditional lexan or cut-off shock towers.
Anyway, I would like to know which gear diff are you using? Is it a Spec-R TA05 unit? I'm using the Tamiya ones and can't make them fit by switching the bearing olders from left to right like you did. I had to shim the bearing instead.

Yeah they are lowered 07 towers. I originally had them on without the aluminum part but they seemed to get a little sloppy after a few runs. And yeah, its a spec r ta05 diff with the bearing holders flipped around.

It looks very nice! maybe an idea to do that too.
Do you also have some close pictures of that geardiff with the bearingholders?

Default Corally HMX

well the 2nd one has arrived and yes.. new shocktowers front and rear, the front ones seem a little shorter while the rear ones are actually taller looking (no i didnt put the wrong one at the rear) the rear shocktowers have changed angles and what looks like 2 more ballstud mounting holes, these are however not threaded, overall the ballstud is 52mm from the chassis compared to 55 mm in the old shocktower a lower mount option on the new shocktower can be at 47mm.

sadly no geardiff yet.

pictures to follow later if requested.

No worries mate. I am going to try out a TC for the first time this weekend. Its an older Corally chassis and if I like it, then an order for a V2 HMX will take place! Cheers, Chris
