Same as with the t4 it might be possible with different spring cups. I was looking roughly at the length of yok springs and the potential is there.

Do you have a part number for a lower spring cup?

There is no ARC Part (as yet), i was looking at Tamiya ball ends, and 1mm down cups, and it looks like it would be a close fit. You might need to make some slight clearance on the arm.

However there are plenty of spring options out there already for short shocks, ARC of course, Xray, and RSD all make sets of springs.

Haven't tried the xray pulleys in this car. The difference is negligible cause the xray ratio is 1.9 where as the arc is 2.0.

Maybe, but here racing rule is maximum Ratio 5.000 (10,5 blinky) if you use Xray pulley , whit the same Pinion/Spur the ratio is 4,75... ¿more faster?...

Gave my R-10 a run last night, nice!
Fitted with all the low friction stuff, 20mm steering swing arms, separate arm mounts, floating servo mount, Xray front bumper complete (15g lighter & allowed me to use an existing body)
For a first run I couldn't be happier...

The original R10 is a potent machine. I'm reluctant to convert it over to the newer specifications. However, my 2013 model handles freakin awesome so I want to make a twin for another class.

Definitely considering this car, but wanted to get some feedback on a few things:

-Looking to run 17.5 blinky on carpet, rubber tire. Anybody been running this car with rubber on the rug? Is the newer more flexible chassis in the 2013 edition ideal for this type racing?

-What about shocks? Good quality, easy to build, repeatable performance?

-Hinge pin blocks - looks like there's a ton of combinations for toe in, out and track width. Do all of the various blocks come with the kit?

Thanks for any info.

The ARC shocks are nice. Not quite as nice as tamiya or HPI but functionality is great. Easy to build and no leaks. Oring's are good so you don't need third party orings.

I haven't driven my 13' model on carpet yet but for sure the original R10 is good on carpet. But I'm sure the 13' will be great on carpet.
