I'm guessing Honk Kong since they list the races there that Barry went to... hmmmm okay... blah blah blah... maybe I'll give them a shot.

Just thought I'd give a thumbs up to the Atheena Projects shock towers, ran them for the first time tonight, and standing the shocks up one hole all round made the car much more precise, a sense that the suspension was working immediately as you change speed and direction, instead of lagging a little. Sharpened up the turn in, also stopped the tail wagging a bit as well.

Here is a direct link to the Shooters stuff. They also have the Square Ti input shafts.

I ordered them. I figure I'll give them a try as well. I already have the Team Suzuki Aluminium top deck mount. They seemed to slightly stiffen up the chassis. But I'd like to try these Shooters deck mounts for the simple fact you can mount camber links off of them. Thanks for the link MO.......

Are those shock towers going to be for sale anytime?

Not sure about the shock towers. The guy who is supposed to be making them is flaking on me and the other machine shops I've e-mailed haven't gotten back to me or are much more expensive. I'm still trying though.

Guys,

What do I gain by putting the rear shock tower on the front?

When I did it a few weeks ago I gained a ton of steering on my car. I then just added a bigger front swaybar and raised my front roll center by 2mm. That smoothed everything out and I still had more steering overall but now it is controllable. You also get more camberlink positions to.

Atheena Projects shocktowers are direct replacement for the stock shocktowers with more shock positions, just put them on the car, no need to re-adjust ride heigth/shock length and you don't need to drill new holes on the body.

Weekendracer I made one. Just downloaded two regular setup sheets and then cut out just the rear tower and put it over the front tower picture and photo copied it. Came out perfect. I then just used a copy machine at my work and made about 25 copies. I just don't have a scanner to put them on the site. Very easy to make if you don't find one.
