Love the layout and looks of this car but I noticed something odd looking at the pics floating around the internet...

Hey, you're pretty good but no. Maybe I should add "official" to the title, that seems to make all the difference...

They can be mounted on the front or back of the tower now go discuss it in the Durango thread instead of starting a new one

The car is designed so that the shocks can be run either forward or rearward on the back. You can read about it at redrc.net.

looks like the rear shocks can go on either side of the shock tower.
just flip the arms upside down, and swap the camber links as well.

The rear shock position (and adjustability) was covered in Durango's blog, as well as in the other thread which I pointed you to. No need to thank me, I work pro bono

Thanks for pointing it out. Havent seen the blog (nor any blog for that matter) and didnt notice the other thread. After reading the other thread, I still didnt notice the shock placement/adjustability but I have had a few gin/tonics now.
