I know I can use the arms as a tuning option. I am just trying to see if it would be just as good to use my sp and wc for spares as aposed to selling them.
I and others posted up a list of parts that convert. You can search my posts in this thread and find it. I would suggest taking off some of the goodies you have on one car that swap and selling one, keeping the other for parts. Unfortuneately they are not fetching much.

I am going to start tuning my car with the jconcepts high clearance wing, as they are the most durable and the cheapest... and they come in pairs.

+1 one here on the Jcons. Cant believe how flimsy the Step 2.0 was, Would like to try a small blast as well as they tend to last the longest of any wing on any car I have ever used, plus they look way damn cool.

How do you run the 64p gears without a slipper clutch like in that stock setup.

Jason runs a slipper eliminator hub that makes it direct drive and no slipper.

Is that a good idea for a mod motor as well for indoor? I hate fiddling with slippers in all honesty.
