oople...Yes the shock tower was shorted but from what they gave me at the worlds the shock bodies where the same length..just coated in a different material...this i know is a fact...the bodies do have more threads to make getting right height a little easier...that might make it seem shorter then it really was.

Hey Ronnie, I heard Derek Furutani talking to Hodapp about shorter shock bodies to go along with the shorter rear tower when I was at Pegasus a couple of Saturdays ago. Derek was saying that the top was milled down. I'm pretty sure he said they were on his car. But dont quote me on that.

Sweet deal! There are only 2 guys running the RB5 here in Denver (Sparky and I). Usually the A here consist of only Losi and AE but for the last month its been Losi, AE, and Kyosho definitely a refreshing change. Loving the car coming from onroad Im really impressed with the massive corner speed out of the RB5. I tried your CRCRC setup last night at SRS and it rocked so it should be dialed for Mhor. When and if those trucks come out need to get 2 of them out there to us lol....

Where do you get that cool looking blue hardware? And how does the car have a nut instead of a screw in the shock/arm hole?

thanks

Yo! Jeremy, why don't you save yourself 200 bucks in gas money and come out to Pegasus and race on Saturday? Or are you Boycotting the place?

Maybe a weekend in the near future when I am not so swamped at work and can actually sacrifice that kind of time for a club race. It sounds like fun though.
