I am waiting for my PRP towers as well. May be a few days more since I am on the east coast.

Are those PRP towers just for the front or does PRP make a rear tower?

Both, front and rear. Normally I'd just run the front one because there's no problem with the stock rear. But since I've got both now, I'll go ahead and run both.

PSI Racer: No, I've had no CNC work done on my chassis. I think you might be thinking of Randy.

JKerr: WOW! I'm jealous. I can't wait to get my set (which will hopefully be tomorrow as you already have yours).

WORD OF CAUTION WHEN USING TAMIYA DAMPERS!!!!

Make sure you shim them properly - otherwise, you put pressure on the shaft and inturn, deform the piston guide. I made this mistake and now have to buy new rod guide / oring kits (cheap and should be replaced anyway according to a Tamiya guru I spoke with). Still, I only ran two race days before wearing out my front guides.

James: How many shims are you running behind yours on the drilled tower?

JKerr: Will you let me know how you shim yours up and how it works out for you?

Here they are. As far as the shimming, I just used Tamiya hardware and spacers and just make sure the shocks are as close to straight up and down (fore and aft) as you can get them.

No. These are some prototypes. I'll post how they work once I get a chance to run them this weekend.

Looking good JK.

You'll have to let us know how that setup works out for you. Definately check the shaft guides for wear after your first practice / race day. Mine are wobbly as heck.

Hey jkerr0043,

That looks awesome. Like those tamiya shocks on the Losi. What kind of hex hubs are those ?

They are the trintiy MF hubs. They were red but I hate red so I stripped them with easy off and poilshed them with a dremel and a polishing wheel.
