Integy: using a ball-tipped driver, slip it in under the top cross bar with the degrees marked on it. It will slide in the hole and engage the head of the pivot ball.

I would not use ball-tipped drivers on the aluminum pivot balls, as they will damage the balls. Always try to use the straight hex driver on aluminum.
Here is a picture of the modification needed in the Hudy side ruler, and the Dremel bit used. The finish can be much better, if you don't rush, like I did.
The top hole has to be enlarged a little bit, or lift the car to access through the unmodified hole.

On top of that..........you can pick the SSG version for ALL SHOW and NO GO route. I usually won't recomment 3rd market parts for Serpent, but shock towers is not something that important, also, the price of 2 to 1, it is a bargain.

What is odd is....they have only 2 shock positions....why? and what happened to the rest?

Serpent rear tower list price is $22.95 (Serpent USA)
Here is what I did, with 3mm carbon fiber. Hope you like it.

I use "molybond" in my thrust bearings, it stayes in there under temperature and rpm.

There is also a spray on molybond available in pressure pack cans. Sprays on wet, but dries. Acts just like graphite powder without the dust and migration of lubericant. Would be good to reduce friction on pullies and belts... hint hint...

Like they say in F1 (and I can't wait to watch the Aussie GP this weekend), you'd need a Superlicense before you can get your paws in the driver's seat.
WEll, as u noticed already..i can't wait for the license The Road Transportation always reminded everyone to get their license beforehand before venturing to the road.

The control thing is 1st thought by my friend, rcsabah so our racers will learn the proper ways to race...this is also to prepare them for the Asean race in Kuching. In fact, most of the rules and spec were taken from the Asean race entry form...except the front windscreen ventilation hole. ours was 70mm, theirs is 50mm.

Like Pyramid mentioned before, the newer batch of shocktower is coming already (as a part) 4mm thick and less hole in the middle.
And thicker lower bumper plate is coming also. Not as strong as I hope but certainly way stronger than before.

We were not notice any different in upper bumper plate and/or rear lower arm.

As for rear camber adjustment, I simply use long allen key.
