yes they should do, but hb works better. so I'd recommend to use those if you feel a need to use other springs

Hey Guys I have a question about the Masami Rear Shock tower. I know when you use this shock tower you have to lenghten you shocks,I use 62mm for the rear what would be a good shock lenght for this tower.

Also what are the differences in Chassis

The original and the mg chassis I think that what its called Lol...

the mg flexes the same as the old bd chassi, but with 4 cutouts less in the front, for more front impact stability

with the masami shocktower i used 65mm shocklength in the rear, but I went back to the old shock tower. simply better to have shorter shocks, and if you copy the design of the masami tower on the old shocktower you get an awesome look too

Default Thicker Carpet Chassis

This is a call to the guys who run on foams i do have a chassis in the works and at the moment its the same design as the original but will obviously be thicker material but with the parts milled out where suspension mounts and bulkheads go to keep the roll centres the same. Are there any changes that you would like to see and what material thickness 3mm or 3.5mm or maybe 4mm?

All your views will be welcome

Dan

I used it and it notch after just a few runs. They should have made it to use blades.

Hi Martin,

for the foam chassis, a 3mm of top and bottom deck would be great.
if you can also add one extra post on each of the corner(4 corners), like a wing style from xray. that would stiffen up the chassis even more. that way you can either stiffen or loosen up the chassis depends on traction. Because I think 4mm is way to over kill and with extra weight you carry. Not to image the price tag is going to carry over.

just some thought.

If you're looking for a spool, I'm driving the TIR one with delrin outputs, extremely happy about it, almost no wear, you keep the std axles and the outputs are pretty inexpensive.
