Couple of questions regarding fitting xi rear arms to my S

What is the part number for the rear arms?
Would I have to change the rear suspension tower and bulkhead covers?
With the shorter arms do I get the 44mm shafts?

Thanks

I do not know the part #s but I did not have to change anything else on my Sakura to install the XI rear arms.

1: check the 3Racing site or download the manual of the XI
2:No
3:No
If you use the narrow suspension blocks, then you need to change the shafts.
If you would like to get even more rear grip then use the front bulkheads at the rear and use a TRF416X rear shock tower

I don't know but I do know that when I buy an engine for my remote control car it uses nitro methane. Not a lipo battery.

X1 towers also work, the car looks si much better with the shocks behind the tower instead of in front, i cant comment on handling improvements as i never drove the car with the stock tower, but apparently it is better somehow.

Can anyone recommend a servo that won't start making turns on it's own at high speeds? Oh yeah at a gooooood price..it's very hard to know your driving capabilities with a crappy servo..
