Yes the 2013 shocks and shock towers will fit the 2015 platform. Feel free to use it as a tuning option as some do like the shorties as opposed to the long shocks regardless of what other may say.

Each track and driver have different preferences. for example all the Yokomo team at the Japan AOC ended up running short shocks on the BD7 2015.

Preach on Minh!

Options are good and what works for some may not work for others. I look forward to hearing your feedback as well Potoczak.

If anyone is looking for the ats upgrade kit gridworksracing.com has kits in stock at 20% off. Great deal on a awesome upgrade for the 2015 r10.

Default new to Arc

First time out yesterday with my new ats kit in stock and was 2/10th faster than my yokomo. This is a great car easy to drive fast and very consistent. Looking forward to more tuning time

I don't think the holes will line up as the T4 bulkheads are spaced closer together. Another note, the Xray t4 utilizes shorts shock while the ARC 15 uses long shocks so unless you also plan on getting longer shocks, i don't think this combination will work.

I use the long Nt1 shocks right now with the raceberry towers. I picked up another T4 and thought if the R10 towers would fit they would be easier to find so I could run my long shocks on my new car also.

Thanks for your help.

I have measure the distance between the bulkheads and they measure 22mm. Now you measure the distance between the T4 bulkheads and that might give you an idea whether they may or may not fit your application.
