Team Associated RC8B3.1 FT tall rear shock tower

See: Team Associated

Team Associated have introduced a new Factory Team carbon fibre tall rear shock tower for the RC8B3.1 and RC8B3.1e. Machined from high-quality carbon fibre, the rear shock tower features a taller geometry in order to increase up-travel. Up-travel is how much further the shock can travel upwards in its stroke after the chassis has bottomed out with the ground. Increasing up-travel lets the tire absorb more impact and improves handling in bumps and high-speed cornering. After testing, Area 51 engineers found that by raising the existing shock locations by a specific amount, up-travel is optimized for both low and high axle positions.
