Do they make lower shock towers for the TCXX and if they do what shock do you run?

HB are currently woking on proto low shocks and towers but still testing. Arrowmax have lowered towers but they require either the CSO low profile shocks or AME Tshoxs (short version).

The lower towers I am trying make the car feel more 'planted' in the high speed turns (Sweepers) for me. I am using Tshox currently with mine, but will be trying the Serpent shocks this weekend with normal length springs.

Dirtydog,

Have you considered T4 or Tamiya TRF Mini shocks?

I didn't, as I had access to or owned the shocks already. (Serpernt ERYX, Short Tshoxs and CSO short shocks)

The Tshox are a direct fit and work really well so far on initial testing on outdoor large asphalt track (high speed, low gip and bumpy)

Will be trying the Serpent ERYX shocks on Saturday with HPI Silvers all round (like I usually run) with 3 hole x 1.1mm piston and 388cst oil. And then testing CSO short shocks with same oil and piston setup, but using short springs.

Will report back on my findings.

Let us know what you find out. I would like to get a new low setup.
