For what it's worth, Tower has it listed as "order pending" at just a tick under $200 (currently.)

I think it was made clear from day one that it would be more cost effective to just buy a new FTTC4. I think the conversion will be around 200 but thats just my guess.

My guess is Baker by the looks of the Reedy sticks and motor.

Default INPUT BEARING CUP

Need a little help

Has anybody seen an aftermarket aluminum input bearing cap?

The original part # from AE is 31098

I have checked Square,3 racing, & Tobbee Craft with no luck.
I some how miss placed the original plastic piece that came with the FT kit.
I would rather buy an aftermarket part to replace the one I lost.


Thanks for your help........

Default Spool vs: One-way

I've been running a front one-way stock/rubber/carpet.

What difference should I expect from a spool. I'm guessing I could brake into the corners, etc, but does it cause understeer on power, etc?

What difference between a center one-way and my usual front one-way?

Appologies if this has already been discussed, but I read back quite a ways before asking...

Many thanks,

Scottrik

Default New Body Holes

I just ordered the TC$ conversion. I understand that the body post locations are different. Can you put new holes in old body are the new and old holes too close together?

I can tell you that the TC3 is far off enough to drill new holes.

This FT's top plate is modified from the one that comes standard in FT kit. Is it one that was made especially for the Vegas races? or is it one from another conversion kit?
