Default Optional parts by Arrowmax

Hi guys !
I would like to ask Mr. hubbard if these optional parts for TCXX (lowered towers by Arrowmax site) can be mounted, and if they have a better use on carpet.

Thanks so much

If they are TCXX specific then I don't see why they wouldn't fit. Whether or not they would be better on carpet depends on your overall setup and driving style. Using them will change the piston position and reduce the pack of the shock (less oil above the piston). This will induce more chassis roll and will reduce the lateral load balance on your tires. But you don't have to use those towers because you can always alter pack/piston position by changing the overall shock length.

Hey guys, nothing new about a floating servo support?

Sorry about the spur gear, it was a picture of Robinson for my Awesomatix...

This is the item mounted on my TCXX:

Hi all,

Has anyone tested the box setup for the TCXX? Any feedback would be great!

I race outdoors on a Low/Med bite track and I would say its a tight/open track as well.

Thanks for your time guys.

I found the box setup really twitchy. Way too nose-happy.

I (mostly) switched over to Fred Hubbards setup - #2 position for the shocks in the rear, #3 in the front, wide copper rollbar in the back. I left the 1.5mm under the front blocks, however.

Car was much better, and a lot more predictable. I would also add a touch more front droop, as the car was a little loose coming out of the corner - not much, but enough that you had to be paying attention when you got on the throttle.

Update: this is the setup I was referring to. I stuck with the kit shocks, since I wasn't sure a) what they are in the scale of HB shocks (pinks, silver, gold, etc), and how they compared to the Yomoko Shocks. I know there's charts online to compare them, but I haven't got there yet...

I found the kit setup twitch as well. I made a few changes that seemed to work well (raised the front ride height a smidge and slapped a softer rear tire on than what I had prior), but I think I'm gonna give Fred's setup a try. Thanks for posting.
