    Yeah, that's what I found too. I have the FLM shock Towers and the Tekno Maxx Wing Mount can be made to fit with some mods.

    Hey 50, what Steering System you running, still stock or have you upgraded to Aluminium?

    I went with the gh bell crank. I tried two shims to take the slack out but was still metal to metal. I just shimmed it with one traxxas teflon shim on each side. They are 6mm little big but should be better then the metal ones. Think they are 6x8x.05mm

    Thanks. I also have upgraded to Aluminium (forget the brand) and have noted some slack in the system where the main "dogbone" arm attaches. Am going to look into some shims too.

    I turned the top bracket around and have to decide how I am going to install it. The shock tower mounting holes are threaded which is fine for the lower holes but the upper bolt has to go through the shock tower into the wing mount

    Didn't want to do it but I had to drill.out the threads on the top mount because the bolts have to come through on the motor side

    Hehe I know that :P I have the same problem with my shock tower. I Had to drill too.
    I had to shim it with copper pipe to move back to fit with my bajr body because it was too close.

    I do wish the wing was a little taller but I want strength more then anything else
    I used tony's bolts to mount it. They should be good!
