I believe those changed were made before the Reedy Race from Mark and other Team driver car from the pix I am seeing ..

Silly question but here goes.

Are the body mounts positioned the same as xray?

The retail version still mounts the shock tower at the same location as the SMJ CX11
Wasn't that done to get more rear ride height with the Axon shocks?

My buddy who went to the Reedy said they couldn't get over 5mm ride height with the amount of droop he wanted.

Could have been told BS by my buddy too.

Can't tell from the photo's, but if the setup sheet is vaguely accurate, it looks like the rear shock tower (or at least the shocks) mount higher than the front by default.

MR isn't the only infinity driver with lowered towers.

For a really new car, it's sound quite sad...

Small potato's. Running changes with shock towers is not a big deal. Same as adding a optional chassis for a different surface.

I thought the point was people was hoping buying a new kit is all you need and not spending extra money...

There is always certain things to be bought after fact but.... Shock towers or shocks to be one of the first changes would be sad indeed.

MR is wheeling his car like the champ he is though

Just like any car there will be teething problems! Wait a month or so for the teething to stop aching.

The pros are always running prototype parts, some of these parts might just be for that race because it's all about the win. I think the car will perform very well out of the box for us non pros. I personaly do not buy a new kit when it's released for at least six months that way all the bugs get worked out and more set-ups are available.
