If you use the rear shock tower up front... you need to go with the upper holes on the tower. Not the lower ones.

Randman - I already have the rayspeed retainers and short ends.

Kilruf - I tried using the upper holes and it was a little better, but I still couldn't get the ride height below 5mm. I just decided to go back with the original front shock tower.

Here's another one, I performed the 90 degree servo mod and now the servo tie rod is rubbing on the shaft....any suggestions???

2mm spacer under the steering turnbuckle ballcup on the servo saver side should solve your problem.

Make sure the hinge pin is in the lower hole of the caster block. I you have it in the top hole given shock lengths your ride height will be to high,

Cobra81li200 - I'll give that a shot.

pops - I'll check but I believe the hinge pin is in the right location.

What benefit do you get when using the rear shock tower in the front??

Good deal, Jason Erthracter (sp?) said he heard the 10-11th, but I just want to know a set date...

Using the rear tower up front gives you more shock mounting options, outward more will stiffen the feel of the shock, and make the steering feel a little more twitchy.

Does the rear tower just bolt onto the front?

Just got 2 SD's with the mail yester-yesterday
VERY nice car, easy to build and wrench on. As good as my Xray i must say

I have a Rayspeed Conversion for one of them too, what benefits has the Rayspeed-chassies besides the updated steering?

The premiere-run with my SSG will be tomorow with Foam-tires. Very exciting!!

Yeah, you just need to cut off the body mount part to fit under the body.

Congrats on the buy The RS chassis has the battery slots moved forward from what everyone has told me, so it'll have a more aggressive steering feel. If I were you, I'd run the RS car on carpet, and the SSG on asphault.
