Thanks
The Masami tower is ment to give more steering and make the car more stable.

I don't know about the SDW arms with the HB front end, from what I have seen the standard arms work well with the HB front end. I am in the middle of making the conversion on my car to HB front end. The results looks awesome, can't wait Will test it out this weekend - better not rain

I havn't completed it yet, I was building it on saturday hoping to race with it on Sunday, but I realised I was still missing a part, so I will get that part and try it at racing this weekend.

There are pictures a couple of pages back though.
Parts I used:

HPI:
1x 75187 - Universal Axel
1x 75188 - Universal Rebuild kit
1x 73518 - C-hub 4 deg
2x 73507 - Knuckles/rearhubs or 1x CYL-06B Jet Racing Alloy Knuckles from Precision RC
1x 75116 - King Pin Ball Stud (bottom just uses a 3x8 screw)
1x 75122 - King Pin Collar
1x 75119 - Suspension shaft
1x Z775 - C-hub set screw

Tamiya
1x OP-871 - 48mm Alloy TA-05 dogbones
1x B1050 - 10x5 bearings (or is it 8x5? something by 5 anyway, yokomo is 10x6, or 8x6, whatever)

I think thats all of it

They fit good if you are using the SDW arms in the front!

It is not a spool, it is 2 diff halfs. It shows that it comes with a diff screw and the two diff halfs. It shows that you can use it with either the BD os SD.

surely if it was a spool it wouldnt have places to put your d rings and wouldnt have screw a spring init. def diff outdrives.

I never said the other picture wasnt diff halves. The first picture looks like a spool, have a look close in by the pulley its not round like a diff would be. There is an edge there that i've seen on other spools before.
