looks nice...the rear looks like the shock stood up more..did the front stand up more than the stock front brace?...also did it improved the trucks handling any?

And thx for postn the pics.

looks kinda hard to keep from cutting the front of the body to fit over the tower.

It improved handling alot. It stood the front shocks up a little bit more. The truck didn't bottom out nearly as much as it did with the stock towers. With the stock towers I tried many different springs and oils and I just couldn't get it right. Right now I have 50 wt. shock oil front and rear with red front hot bodies springs and blue rear hot bodies springs.

One of the other mods I did to get it to steer better is I put the Hot Bodies RTR buggy radio tray in it. The purple aluminum one. It makes it standup servo which makes steering better and makes servo access much easier too.

I did on my sport..you just have to move the top mount to the outer most position...where the body mount bolts to..then just move those to where the shocks used to bolt to...iv got 80 with the 1.45 and blue truggy springs..
I just need to stand them up a bit more..I am thinking of the rear tower from pro2 buggy..but I am unsure of the front ,cause I want to keep from cutting up the front of the body to much.

I have heard of the front upper arm mod but I have not heard of which arms to use. Which arms did you use for this mod? What parts did you need to buy?
