Did you have to modify anything?

Do the shock mounts bolt right up without the need for any antivibe inserts or mods?

Thanks

no mods! just swap em out.. I put a lil CA glue around the edges of the CF towers to help prevent from splitting.

+1 on the towers from xtreme. anything bruce sells is topnotch. i run his ceramic bearings and carbon parts. i ran his towers for 1.5 yrs on my mbx5t with no issues at all. i had some major crashes too, but never a problem. i have one weekend on all the carbon goodies on my jammin x2 and they are awesome as well. xtreme is the place!!
