nope, not required - they just make fitting everything in better

especially if you are using a 'larger' receiver or speedo

It would get quite tight if I was trying to fit in a GM or Speedpassion ESC in there. The advantages of a low profile servo include more space and lighter weight.
Cool. I was worried I was going to need to add yet another servo to my collection, rather than just yanking one out of my off-road vehicles which don't see any use during the winter on road season...

I'll also be using the RS Pro with the TCX, so space shouldn't be an issue.

I noticed this difference, configuration "high tower" series on the TCX.

Interesting. I remember a while back when Hiro/Korey were using the Andy Moore World Edition rear tower saying it was better for rear grip. It had lower holes then the TC.

You can gain close to the same geometry by using Andy Moore edition shock towers on the TC mounts.

Yes, you can use the "upper bulk head Moorspeed" # 61316

Correction... It actually gave the same geometry at the TCX.

The upper bulkheads on the Cyclone TC are 2mm taller than the older cyclones to make room for some beefing up. The kit came with the lowered shock towers (2mm lower) to maintain the same geometry as the older cyclones. When that upper bulkhead is not used with a "lowered" cyclone TC shock tower, the shock positions are 2mm higher, just like the TCX.

It moves the piston further down int he shock body, putting more shock oil on top of the piston. This makes the shock pack up easier, and usually produces more grip At paved nationals I actually used TC upper bulkheads, and WCE/AME shock towers front and rear. It just gave the car more traction all around.

That would lower the towers even more if you are using the TC shock towers. I have heard of some people using this when the grip is extremely high, but it's something I wouldn't normally run. So in the end, it is not the same as the TCX or TC upper bulkhead and WCE tower combo.
