Got a race day in with the new towers. Car ran great. Need to get the long springs to get full use of the new tower though. But it really helped gain some up travel that I needed before. In the pics the forst is the new tower on top of the stock tower. In the second and third pics it shoes how much I had to run the spring up with stock and how far down with the Bezerk tower.

The towers look great. Bezerk makes good stuff.

They are a bit thick at 4mm, but will never have to worry about breaking!!! They are definately needed to run the 06 in VTA due to the hieght of the tires. I had a set made for my Ghost as well.

I just installed the EMR 0 degree hubs on the back of my D06. These things are works of art. EMR i have a suggestion can you make suspension mounts that take the inserts from say AE (or spec R) that would fit the D06/7?

What rear blocks are you running and are the smaller ones oriented right?

I had this problem with my d06, hinge pin was straight, blocks appeared straight.

It wasn't noticeable in scale spec, so I just rolled with it. Forcing the blocks while tightening did help a bit, from what I remember.

I have had this on every car I have owned, you just need to pinch it so you can get it as close as possible to the desired toe-in required

most likely the problem is in the rear hub. They could be bent a little. Try the EMR Factory aluminum rear hubs it should fix your problem.

I had the same issue with mine, I came to find out that when I put the bearings in the plastic hub I didn't have them straight in, they both angled a bit and threw the rear toe out (Mold flaw or my own mistake I don't know). I put the EMR hubs on and the bearings fit really snug and flat against the inner lip. My toe is exactly 3 degrees each side on my hudy station.
The plus side is the EMR hubs look awesome.
