Just want to let you guys know that we've received our first batch of Low Profile shocktowers for the Tamiya 417 and Xray T4.
Our shocktowers are designed to enable the use of LP shocks but retain full length springs. During testing it was very clear the full length springs are superior to the short springs and thus we designed our shocktowers to enable the use of both type of springs.
The DS Motorsport carbon fibre shocktowers for the Xray T4 raise the shockmounting point by a small amount which enables the user to run normal lenght springs with the LP dampers. This option will give the racer the best of both worlds, the low CoG of the LP dampers and shocktowers combined with the superior performance of the full lenght (HPI) springs.
The mounting height for the rear bodyposts has remained the same compared to the standard shocktowers.
The shocktowers are currently in stock and sold through the following site:
