I use RC Final Gear Ratio LITE on my android phone to get the FDR and other useful info. There may be other programs and apps available but I like this one. It is free.

welcome to the team and enjoy!

only items id get right away would be yeahracing pivot balls and tamiya ballcups. id also consider 3racing titanium turnbuckles, but only cause i dont have a wrench for 5mm hah.

otherwise, just get some shims. 0.1-0.3mm and 0.5-2mm in red.

djcs are very nice but not needed. the stock axles are actually quite good. im tempted to try the spec r spring sets as well. was gonna get the ride ones but $7/pair is kinda pricey. im not cheap really, just value minded.

I used to run a serpent, associated, team magic ect. I quite like working on this car so far. just changing the spur is enough for me lol. i also dont like having to buy $20 blocks if i wanna change toe.

I'm thinking of ordering this shock/spring set:

http://www.rcmart.com/year-racing-xp...g-p-36301.html

I can't believe the price. Poor kids must get paid $1.60/month in the YR factory in order to produce that much stuff for such a low price.

Anyone here have any experience with this kit?

What spur and pinion should I be looking at I get to FDR around 3.3 on my S1. I guess I can't get that low with the kit spur?

DBM the YR shocks are a good upgrade. I don't have them yet but quite a few of the guys at our local track use them and have reported only good things.

Thanks! I'm pretty happy with the stock R1 shocks, but the shocks on my TC4 are rubbish, so I figured I'd order the YR shocks for my R1, and move the R1 shocks to the TC4.

I think I tried a 87t 3Racing spur in mine (that I've run in my TCXX), and that wouldn't fit on the center pulley because of how the spur is designed.

Did anyone opt for the metal shock bodies, I wonder how durable the plastic bodies are. Also does it need sway bars? Some cars need them, some not so much. I originally posted this in the S-2 forum, but It was suggested I post this here. I just hate paying shipping twice. Especially on small things.

Thanks in advance,

the stock shocks work just fine the way they are. if you break a shock body, you probably killed something else in the process.
i will say that you need to take special care when assembling the shocks as to not cross the threads. they are very fine and can EASILY be killed if your in a rush.

otherwise, i havent had any problems with shocks leaking or breaking.
i tend to rebuild my shocks every couple race days for good measure. no matter what car it is.

+1 for the plastic shock bodies. I do have the metal ones now and I have to say that they are less prone to cross threading than the plastics.

As far as the sway bars go, I have started using them recently and I have to say they do make a bit of difference. Just make sure they are put together properly and you will see an improvement. I am only using the stock ones.
