The carbon towers on the T look like the same carbon towers i have on my T... regular AE upgrades. The c hub setup is totally different tho... front bumper is different... i like the wheel hubs too... no change to the lower shock mounts tho.

This front carbon towers are a pain in the @$$ to change the front upper hinge pins setup or to do some work on the front end..... the CE towers you need to remove just 2 small screws...

It depends on what engine and clutch combo you use. Standard or the one with the 1.5mm setback are the ones I would guess you would use. I have a Kyosho 3 shoe from my old Kyosho that I'm using. It lines up perfect.

Agreed. Its easier if you Dremel out the part of the tower that fits between the front and rear halves of the diffcase, and use the shim from the buggy in its place...

Im looking at the some Alum rear hubs not the Associated ones the Hot Racing ones which i can afford and ive seen guys running them with no issues. Well i asked a guy i race with about the Alum rear Hubs and i asked what else was the benefit other than the extra camber from the third hole. He said it makes the rear end feel tighter using the thrid hole which i want because my Rear end on my Converted RC8T is loose at times. If i try to drive it harder with more throttle so maybe that will help.

Is there an alternative for the paper diff gaskets? If not do you change em out when you change the oil? I know losi and hyper have the tougher blue ones but I know losi don't line up

Truggy and especially E-truggy aren't all that popular around here, so I am letting her go

Let me know if you are interested

Yea i saw some upgraded Toe in rear block inserts that add more toe in than the stock and there much cheaper than buying Alum rear hubs im taking a look at them . To me it looks like the rear toe in stock is about 2 - . But than again if i get a new wing and mount it foward to the stock setting that may help since it will give me more downforce. So the rear end sticks better My stock high downforce wing is to bent up to mounted it more foward lol.

Im not using 7k in the rear no no at most il do 5k in the rear i run on a loose dry track.

I am thinking about putting the Carbon Fiber shock towers on my CE. I see that the Jconcepts "Maifield Edition" bracket for the new style body is no where to be found. Is there a new CF rear tower out? Whats the latest and greatest on going back to CF on the CE?
