There are three rear toe blocks (2, 2.5, and 3 degree), but there is also the new version front-rear and rear-front one-piece toe blocks.

Rayspeed, yokomo, and Associated springs fit the shocks*.

I don't know about the sponsored driver list. Pops should be able to tell us


* I can throw in my associated tc3 spring kit if you want. more then enough spring tuning options for people other then masami

besides the rayspeed and yokomo spring set. A lot of people seems
to use either the Hpi or the AE springs on the bd.

AE springs are a bit small in diameter, doesn't sit very good on the springs collar and retainer. If you drive rubber tyres, get HPI or new Yok springs.

I use yoke and ae springs on my lcg. the yoke spring rates seem to fall right inbetween the ae ones giveing options in approx 2.5 lb increments. I only run foam so they may be to stiff for rubber tires.

There is also a 1 degree rear block, but this is plastic. I use the 1 degree on my car with 0.5 hubs reversed for a total of only 0.5 degree.

Hi,

I tested the Masami rear shock tower today and I have to say that I'm impressed. This part is a real improvement. It has a lot more turn-in but stays very stable throughout the whole corner.
Has anyone els any experiences with the new shock tower?

Cheers
Chris

Hi,

the holes for the mounting positions are 2mm higher and you have 7 holes now.
They are closer together and you have the possibility to mount the dampers more upright by one hole like I did.
I think this is one of the main reasons why the car has more turn-in.

Cheers
Chris

In the picture you posted, what is that really thin spur gear on the car? I also notice you're not using the standard chassis, what is the one on the car in the picture?

As for expereincing the new shock tower, I should soon My LHS has the Masami editions in at the moment and I have one aside for me
