tbo713, It just handles a lot better. You can get the towers from Marcus (RC Shox) You also better get the 2 stage piston shock kit , rear toe-in mount and the ball bearing ackermann.

Hi guys! So I ran the car at the Hot Race Challenge this week-end. The atmosphere was awesome and I had an amazing time!
I was trying radical changes in gearing with various clutch bells and different Bevel gear combinations. It didn't work too well so I went back to my original setup. I had really bad qualifiers and qualified top of the B. In the race I was on top with 3 laps lead on the field by the end of the race. In the A I ran pretty strong and came up to 4th position, 1 second from 3rd but my receiver battery died and I had to pull off...
Jermaine was doing really good with the car and qualified in the A. All in all we had a great time racing in Port Jervis!

Thanks Frenchie for the support. Had a blast last race of the season. Thinking hard about going down to Homestead in January.

After coming from Serpent, really enjoying Team C so easy to work on.
I qualified 5 in the A and finished 5th stripped second gear 5min into the main.
It's my bell they are worn out and sharp.

Nice pic of my Lowes work came out nice.

I'm not sure how long are the shafts but I think that overall the shocks on the TeamC are a lot shorter than the DM1 or GTP shocks. So with your shock towers the TeamC shocks might not fit.

You're welcome bro. I was surprised you stripped those gears. The pinions on your clutchbell looked ok when you showed them to me but maybe they were worn I don't know.
Yea you did a nice paint job on that one :-)
