Any plans for longer front shock bodies or shock shafts when the +2 shock towers come out?

I've found that the handle end of a shock wrench works extremely well for installing them. Just place one handle on top of the ballcup, and the other under the carrier, then apply just enough pressure until the ballcup pops into place. The textured finish helps to hold the ballcup in place (well, unless you happen to have a shock wrench with a smooth finish...the Tekno shock wrench has a textured finish).

I don't know...but, I do know that Lunsford offers Ti shock mounts for the 22 5.0:
Lunsford Racing Ti Shock Mounts
They also have Ti screws, turnbuckles, King pins, etc.

I absolutely love this car. By far the best car out of the box without any fancy upgrades (yet) I have ever driven. Itís very planted and a point and shoot kind of acceleration. I was able to be super consistent with it the first night of racing. Canít wait to get more laps on this thing.

Haven't seen a lot of carpet setups going around, so I figured I'd share mine. Our local modified meta, although we cut our teeth primarily in on road, includes half a dozen past national champions at any given race.

A note that camber/toe on the sheet are all measured ball cup-to-ball cup (just like the manual). Due to imperfections in wheels, tires, and any suspension slop I have found it more consistent to measure these setting this way.

Stock A-main:
Mod A-Main:

If you have any questions, just let me know. The car is a fantastic improvement on the 4.0

Here are the some club racing results from today. Although I didn't win I consider a personal achievement of mine that this being the second week of me racing this buggy that I fell within a lap of the fastest 17.5 racers at our local track. This buggy is incredibly easy for me to drive consistently. The biggest times that I had trouble was dealing with traffic on the track.

So far going to steel outdrives has fixed my problem with the thrust bearing. Will update to see if it holds up after some more practice days.

What effect does it have on the car to add or subtract shims in the front?

It depends on which shims your talking about. The shims in the front that control the height of the front mounting block controls roll center of the buggy. There are also shims on your spindles that control the track width of the buggy.
