Default losi v2 shock tower

Gonna get this tower soon. What else do i need to get to go with it? I see most people using the lower outer camber hole and the outer shock hole. Will i need new camber links? Will i need to adjust the camber links after changing the hole? I have a camber gauge but not a hudy setup station so....

There is about 300 pages of this information in the Losi 8T 2.0 thread.

In short you will need new turnbuckles on rear, the ones from buggy work, I think they are 105 mm, yes you need to readjust, I use a rpm camber guage.

Is there a setup sheet everyone is using with the v2 tower? I'd like to get it on there for a race this weekend so i'm kinda pressed for time ordering everything i need. Thanks.

And with the search not working correctly, I feel for the person that has to wade through 7,337 posts to find the one with the info.

Incorrect. You don't want buggy turnbuckles. The 107mm turnbuckles from the front of the truggy are what you want.

Pretty simple really. Use a set of front turnbuckles or cut a few threads off each side of your stock turnbuckles. Run the lower outer hole on the tower and B hole on the hub. Mount the shocks in the outer #4 hole. 32.5wt oil in the rear with stock #56 pistons and 127mm of droop.
