They should, just remember the T1 shocks are longer than the evo 2's.

ohhk, i thought the front T1 shocks were shorter than the evo2, so therefore the new tower might be too high???

Well, I used to run an xray since the first Evo, first came out. I ran it till the EVO2 came out, then I ran that, then added the C-hub Suspension onto it, when that came out. I cant even remember how many years I ran the xrays for. I loved the car. After the '03 On-Road Nats I got picked up by AE so I ran a TC3 for a while, arg... , and that was that. Now I am running for Schumacher. Two words, Best Choice! I really like this car. I am going about a lap faster with this car than with the xray, lol. The corner speed is just wrong. I am STILL getting used to being able to stay on the throttle longer into the corner. I know that I will be staying with Schumacher for a LOOOONG time.

oh man, Ha!, ya, WAY WORTH IT, at least for the tracks we americans run on here. It sounds like you are buying all sorts of stuff for your car, just save up, sell yours cheap and get the new car, or a schuy, lol

fair enuf, thanx for your help i really appreciate it

and i have thought about buying a new car, but i dunno.... haha i need money and i need to keep buying stuff so it kinda doesnt work.

what i was thinking of getting was the full blue BMI graphite parts for my car, and c-hubs.

which is why i needed to know about the shocks incase they dont fit the blue tower, well the evo2 one but in blue.

but now because of the short arms, it seems better to buy a new car, but i want to get the BMI chassis components, so im kinda sitting on the fence at the moment, i dont really know what to do.

i want c-hubs, but i dont know whether i should bother, and then upgrade again to short arms, or whether i should get the BMI stuff and put up with pillow balls a bit longer, and then buy the factory kit.

haha HELP

ohwell, i'll sort it out one day, just need to win the lottery

newayz, thanx very much for your help, much appreciated

cya

well for a few last words, the guys down here, just bought a couple of the Factory Teams, and they like them. Of course I can still pass them around the outside on a corner with my Schuy, but oh well , save your money, get a new car with all the new stuff, then work on making it look pretty.
