Well after like an hour scratching my head I finally figured out how to put a shock tower on the front.
I had an aluminum rusty rear shock mount I got that had been modded to use on a nitro rusty and had never been used, cut what was left of the lower link mounts off and mounted it up using the mount brace under the front bulk for added strength.
Seems quite strong and I'll add some braces to it before I'm done so should hold out quite well.
On to the pics:




This thing is going to have some amazing ground clearance and I'll measure tonight later but I think its going to end up being an 1/8 scale or very close to it.
