No problem as I love the graphite towers. Work great and look killer. I would be interested in the taller tower when available. Most tracks I run on are relatively rough most of the time.

Yeah I was having problems with Tech and being slow so I guess when I tried to post and refresh it put in my post twice.

You might have to build one of those for the SBV2 real quick...... Most of us on the other coast will be switching to LiPo here very shortly.......

But I can already see that if you do build one, the chassis brace will have to go.... However, you can just incorporate one in the LiPo pod...... Or whatever you want to call it......

I guess I need to thank you in a indirect way, my daughter grew up on your "family's" product......... Guess that's why she is so smart....

Did you know that it is necassary to modify the arm to run these? I am running rubber tires on carpet and maybe it is because I am running high roll center on my front arms, but, when I installed the caster blocks I lost all down travel of my arms. I had to file out the inside of the arm where the back of the caster block was hitting. This was dissapointing to have to do this. The last thing I like to do is to have to make modifications with what I would expect to be a direct replacement part. Now if I break aan arm, I have to be sure to modify the new one. Just some thoughts. Or constructive critisizm. They do look good and seem to be stout.

Yes - you do have to file a little bit from the inside of the arm to get droop. The extra material that we have added to the caster blocks make it so they are slightly beefier than the stock plastic ones. Some of the Team Associated guys who tested them for us said they had to file the inside, but they never broke an arm!.. You should be golden! Thanks for pointing this out for others...

Thanks for the info on your testing Damon. And for anybody who still has to do this, I actually used my Soldering Iron and a my knife to do this quickly. Smells a little but made it easy to do and quick.

Drill one hole maybe 2 (depending on placement), and you have your XLR8 Lipo setup. Ordered one will play around with it.

What do I need to do to get my 4300's to fit in my 3D08? They won't slide under the shock/battery holder.
