If I run the small rear shock tower in the front what shocks do I need? I like the idea of running the shorter shock towers all the way around.

I'm about to steal and convert from GT2) to a DM-1 spec from tower with free shipping and a $60.00 off coupon code (new super saver member).

You just run the stock front shocks.

If you are going to use the stock rear shock tower in the front end then you will need to use the rear shocks in the front as well. The stock rear tower needs longer shocks so the stock front won't fit. But if you use an aftermarket carbon tower like the one from maxvelocityracing.com then the stock shocks can be used (only if you use their front shock tower). Hope this helps.

Default rear shock tower mod for the front

drill 2 holes one on each side, drill them in a horizontal line, even with the tower mounting holes, the holes should be 1/2 way from the outer edges, split difference from outside edge to the inside edge but make sure the the shock bolt on

i hope this help ..it made a huge difference in the car performance, it take 2 min. to drill the holes

I should have said, I will test and see which one works better. My GT is pretty dialed. The deal on the DM-1 was too good to pass up.

It's an addiction, I gotta have one of all big GT cars!

One of the guys on the other forum has bought a BMT belt drive GT car, looks sweet.

Thats the first thing everyone said. I know the Roar rules and Ipanema rules state the car has to buggy based, no belts.

There's a real good reason for that, it would be like allowing a 1/8 scale to race against our GTs. GT class racing has been growing strong because of the rule structure and initial start up costs.

While the belt cars are super cool, it would force GT racers to get them to remain competitive against them. With the current world economy and the desire for more fun=less technical=less expensive approach to North American style GT racing is growing; while other classes are in decline, GT continues to grow in popularity.

The fact is a good driver with a pretty much RTR GT car can win big races (Paul Roberts current GT Spec Class World Champion). If the belt cars entered the game, it would be a double edged sword.

I hope in the future to see a class dedicated to just the belt cars, they do look like they'd be killers and fun to race too.
