Default Truggy Rear Tower Trend

I have no idea how the performance of using truggy shock tower for rear. Just know some good drivers are using it. more stable? better accelerate? Really interesting in the topic after i came back from break fast.

Are LOSI and JQ can fit in truggy tower too?

Wish to see the performance on you-tube.

From what I have been hearing, it makes the buggy more stable in the rough. Other than that it appears to be trial and error. Certain tracks it's used and some not.
The Losi 8 and 8T use the same bulkhead so it should work. Would need rear truggy shocks to complete the swap.

Im now playing JQ buggy and LOSI-EU.
Both very good handling, i did super light weight JQ just 3.22kg with LOSI green springs. the JQ spring is lose after time to time of use.
LOSI all original weight in EU edition. they both really good handling in speed.

So the losi truggy shock spring white & purple super strong can use for buggy rear shock setting. Very happy to play some thing new. going to order the losi parts first. should be good for big jump track.

Sorry, that is true. I forgot they switched to the shorter rear tower in the later kits. I still have the older WC 777 sittin around lol. Some still run the long bodies and the taller tower so I would think they would want to run them with the truggy towers since they are still listed as a buggy option.

Makes shocks stand up. Less corner roll. Applying tc trends to off road to gain more cornering... Tc guys ran rear towers of front and rear back in the day for same reason. Just makes it more consistant.

I have not been to a race where I've needed to turn my car in the "tech" - PNB 5 will be my first. Is this something they would look for? What do they look for?
