it does look like it will work if the length matches up. the ball shouldhopefully match up to the lower ball of that kingpin inclination mod.
saw a thread on full belt drive..seems interesting to do for our cars
I saw that too and d/l the spreadsheet for the conversion lol just a bit worried that it would skip teeth
I won't be able to order that arm till next week. I have 2 TT-01E's as well and 1 is almost fully hopped up apart from the frp chassis the other is in pieces. I decided to rebuild the stripped 1 for a friends kid for christmas so with the arms my total for the rcMart order next week will be 245.49 lol so hopefully they'll still be doing the free t-shirt

Also anyone have any solutions about the main belt slop? Ive seen the washers as a cheap fix but has anyone rigged up a belt tension setup?
td-civ is an rc dealer he orders direct from the manufacturers. We buy most of our stuff from rcmart.com
. the rims are 5mm offset, here is the 3racing link
.In the instruction manual it says the front is 164mm and the rear is 162mm. What is the width of the yokomo body your going to use? then you can go a few ways to get the look that your after, offset wheel hex adapters I use 5.5mm on the front and 6mm rear and 3mm offset wheels you can mix it up if you like there are plenty of hex adapter sizes out there, or you can go with a thinner hex adapter, 4mm are the thinnest and use a bigger offset wheel. Wheels go up to about 12mm offset. if you get yourself the 180sx or the onevia you can get the uras gang wider guards and use a large offset wheel. best way is to work out the width of your shell minus the width of the chassis e.g. 190-164 =26 then divide by 2 = 13 so now you can work out what offset and adapter size you want as long as it's close to that number it should look ok if it's larger it may effect how you mount your shell, like how high you cut the arches or mount the shell off the chassis.
twisted concept here is my tension setup.
