The car is definitely a winner on loose dirt, David Ronnefalk obliterated the competition at last year's Euros. You could try contacting him directly on facebook. Online support for all brands of Neidhard SA (HB Racing, Team Orion, Performa Racing) is hit or miss, I am afraid, but their products are amazing.

Anybody else breaking rear shock towers? I ran mine for the first time today and broke the tower within 5 minutes. Just curious if it was a freak thing or somewhat common.

Word is you can fill the outer holes with ca glue and carbon fiber dust . Then chop them off and sand smooth since they are never used anyway ...

Custom front shock tower like ronnefalk uses. Much smoother steering and better landing.

Sooooo, you are running a screw through the front, through the shock mounting aluminum piece, then the tower, then 3mm of spacer, then into the shock tower mount? Quite a bit less uptravel, no? Have a link to where you found this or the picture? For carpet or dirt? Thanks!!!!!

Its from my own d418.Yes shocks are attached to shock tower hole and 3mm spacer to line shocks on better angle.It has like 3mm more downtravel than normal inside shock position.

I understood it is of your car, but I was wondering if you saw Ronnefalk or someone else doing this - and where you might have found that picture. Thanks for sharing the idea, BTW.
