What kind of surface are you running on and what type of motor/tires?

Anybody running the carpet front shock tower. I just installed mine because I wanted to lower ther front of my parma alfa body down lower.

It worked but now even with the front shock collers all the way up. I cant get below a 5.5 mm front ride height. I usually run 4mm. I even tried diffrent shock locations. Whats the deal....

What size tires are you running? With 2.24" and below there should be plenty of room to let the shock collars up and get your desired ride height. I haven't run anything above 2.24". In addition to the Tamale spring perches, you can also use ones from the TC3.

Yes, his fan mount is awesome... I ran it the first time this weekend and my 8x1 came off winning the main at just over 100 degrees... previously, my motor was up around 150-160...

Ge Associated spring retainers for the TC3 or TC4, put these on the front and it will allow you to get the ride height your after.

Later,

It's mentioned in the manual that you may have to trim that standoff on the arm down for clearance...
