Could anybody tell me where still could find Dynamic version, if not at least the place to find short shock(TBBS) towers, please?

Could anybody also tell me which cars' horizontal upper deck fit this FF17?

Best regards

Thanks!
Could you also help me about upper deck, or you think the origin one is fine enough?

Best regards

the OEM is fine enough BUT when you screw the top deck you need to check if the holes of the red bracket and the bulkhead are aligned . In my case I need to ream the holes a bit with a rotary file because the holes are not aligned proprely and tweak the rear end

Last club race made some significant progress. The TBBS shocks have really changed the way the car can squirt through the corner. Moving my battery back on the chassis really swung the handling in a direction I'm more comfortable tuning with. Now it REALLY pushes past the apex and exiting the corner. I've got a ton of rear traction, but that is not the fast way around the track. However, I like driving a stable car, and I'll take the time to dial in the steering. It was was too loose for me before. The Fantom motor feels like a monster, and I know when the car is setup, this thing will be flying!

I know, technically it isn't a legal body.....but, the bitter irony is that it is actually a real life FWD car.
I mounted the Protoform Dodge Dart and it fits PERFECT!
I'll upload a pick as soon as the dogs go down for a nap.

As a Dynamics edition it should come with double joints but imposible to see it and online manual show a Ghost 18...

Both the Ghost18 and the FF18 use chubs.

I also think the FF18 has the DCJ included. (The support parts list doesn't list DCJ, so they probably are NOT included. My Bad.)

I suspect this FF18 has no DCJ.
Anyway, could anybody tell me what other brands diff o ring could replace original ones, please?
EG: Xray, Tamiya, Yokomo.

I doubt the original ones quality!

And could anyone tell me if upper deck of D09 or D10 fits FF18, please?
