I would like to try the SNR carbon-fiber DM1 towers on my Jammin on-road conversion, but the upper front hingepin design is a bit different, the DM1 uses captured design with plastic inserts in the shock tower, and the Jammin uses nut-and-bolt type hingepins.

I think I would just need the upper hingepin holder and inserts (OFN40719) and the 3x48.1mm upper hingepins (OFN40525). Does this seem correct?

That a simple fix I can do a custom one for you, so no inserts is needed very simple.

Thank you Mark!
That's one for the books! I'm glad we took one home!
Sounds awesome Jerry. Good Job!!!! Where you running the Sweeps that you had pictured the other day or did you switch to the PMTs? Did anyone get video of the race??

I used those sweeps in the "DM-1 X" pics but switched back to softer springs in the rear. It seems that everyone else was on the PMT trance. I still felt a little loose but minor tuning will help solve that for the next go around. I hope to see u out there for "Toys for Tots" race Dec 11th & 12th!

That is perfect. I was thinking about asking you to do that, but I figured you would need to do a hole production run of them. I will email you about the towers. Thanks!

I think most of Team Nitronic will be there on the 12th. Several of us can't make the 11th.

He used my Ultra GTP2E but more than likely he will be using a converted V8.
