Instead of offering OEM shock and camber link mounting hole locations in a different material, this shock tower set’s design objectives focus on minimizing rooster capture, maximizing aerodynamics, providing the most effective camber link mounting location and ideal droop and suspension travel characteristics with a variety of shock length options.
It’s your choice between F/R or R/R OEM GTR shocks, F/R or F/F 1/8-scale buggy shocks (Kyosho-based). The tall rear tower not only perfectly tucks in beneath a Short Course body it includes mounting holes for Tekno’s NB48’s adjustable wing mount for building a 1:8 ebuggy. Many years of testing various shock and camber link mounting locations lead to these designs so you can skip straight to a predictable high performance R/C driving experience over any surface. These shock towers aren’t just for big tracks. If you wish to run on-road they have provisions to limit droop when using OEM F/R shocks (without having to dismantle shocks and install internal limiters).
The included Short Course body mounts can be orientated a number of ways to achieve the perfect fit, even when using a RTR Traxxas Slash 4×4 body’s mounting holes. The front shock tower open center section doesn’t only serve up the most airflow, it provides viewing clearance when utilizing an FPV cube-styled camera mount. The rear shock tower’s wing mount holes serve double duty to mount SSC’s new rearward camera turret mount on either side of the rear shock tower (both now offered under the new Surface Drone’s section).
