I have a dumb question here. Are there any setup or handling issues between the old T1's pivot ball suspension system and the current c-hubs suspension system on the FK? I've just got possession of an old T1 with pivot ball suspension system. Looks awesome!!
Originally posted by NismoSkyline17 I do have to say the pivot ball suspension is very durable. At our local track, there is still one that is running it and hasn't really broken any parts.
I can vouch for that !! There is one running at my local track and I shall be the second fellow running one. I've noticed that fellow's T1 is pretty dialed in. There are a couple of Cudas, TC3, Yoks and a whole lot of X-Rays T1R, Evo2 and an FK running. He has yet to break anything through out this sesson and while we're changing a couple broken chubs and arms by now.
Anyway...I'll scream for help here should I need some.
I've been running pivot ball since it first came out and I have only broken one part on the entire car since I had it. That was an inner hinge pin mount. That's over 4 years, with one broken part. Racing at SoCal, which is highly competitive track that can be brutal on arms depending on the layout. I took a year or so off, so actually more like two years of continuous racing. Anyhow, just waiting for FK kits to come in at this point.

Some places close to RC America already have thier gear in stock, and for example Speedtech are gettin thier order later this week. I dont know if you're too late to put in a pre-order; Steve emailed me today to advise the cars are coming into stock on Friday. Put in a pre-order and you shouldnt have any problems getting hold of one
Speedtech also have the best price of any of the on-line retailers I have seen.
