Twiztid- you need less downtravel in the front, which means you wanna turn the droop screws in deeper...

Actually these shock tower are different that Ver. 1.

These SSG include the lower row of holes for the rear tower (as found on the Losi revised towers) and a another row for the front towers. If you notice, quite a few setups coming out of the Losi camp include a camber placement using upper mounts. These SSG towers will allow that tuning option.

Hi Guys,

The SSG shock tower should be available early next week. We will have them on the website now for pre-order.

as MDawson mentioned (thanks for the pictures!), these are updated shock tower following the new Losi shock tower design with extra row of holes for more tuning option.

i know he may get more on power steering but more droop up front will also transfer more weight to the rear when he gets back on the throttle. that was the way i was looking at it anyway.

Yes it will transfer more weight but it will also let the front tires stay in contact with the track and that plus the combo if the front 1way will lead to more steering. I think its more of a low speed grip/side bite issue so that more in the rear end of the car I would think.

o, i didnt know he would be running a oneway. i must have missed that when i read it. i wasnt trying to cause trouble i was just going to add my input, but your theory makes more sense.

Default The problem with discusing droop

Well the problem with discussing droop is half the world sees it one way and the other half sees it the other......
Basically droop is uptravel..... well when you discuss it as up travel 1mm of uptravel is higher on your "droop guage" however it is LESS uptravel than 2mm of uptravel which would be what you get when you unscrew the "droop" screws......

Now since Hudy brought out that first god forsaken guage MORE "droop" is higher on the guage by screwing the "droop" screw in, which is actually LESS uptravel ........

So sometimes you have intelligent people who actually think for themselves and don't listen to what Mario Huddy tells them and call a spade a spade...... Less "droop" should be called as such when you limit uptravel.... But I regress.... since the other half of the world actually have a use for those crappy plastic guages I will continue to not be able to acurately share my set-ups with the world....HAHAHAHAHA!!!!



That's why I always speak of "droop" as uptravel, and also measure it as such settings are also much easier to convert for different tire diameters when measured as such....

Add a rear sway bar. If you're already running one, go to a stiffer one. Is it entering, exiting or all around?

i'm running a front sway, but not a back one, the car is more setup for carpet racing(asphalt isn't my strong point). The car is being tight in the middle, but mostly it is all-around tight. little more exiting(hard to explain, but i lose all of speed in the turns, compared to other racers, and i don't hit the walls).

Default anyway

okay, my question is, when you see a guy racing, and his back end is swinging out, basically the opposite of being all around tight, well, how can i be like that, a little bit, i am so tight it's not funny. I have a front sway, the battery is the the back(i got t-boned and broke the chassis, now i can't have it in the front), slicks, x-patterns, all graphite.
