Default New Rear

New Kyosho rear shock mount and shock tower--no more crooked rear shock tower. Kyosho also made the shock tower thicker at 3mm, addressing another common complaint.

Part number VZW207.

They just came out in Japan last week. It'll be another few weeks before they hit the hobby shops here in the US.

Very nice. It looks like you won't be able to use the upper link with the bearings but it looks like there are mounting options.

Those are a real pain in the a$$. It looks like they are too big. I just played with them until I got them right. My tip would be to be patient... I know, that's a real B.S. tip but it's the only one I have. Maybe someone else has a better idea.

The jury is still out. To make it work you have to shave off part of the ball link connector or you won't have enough up travel. I'd rather they kept the original position. I also tried the bearings before. While it makes the rear smoother it also makes the rear hub prong to breakage as there is no give when you tap the rear anymore.
