I'm installing the aluminum steering arms on my car (302525) and it comes with one orange 1 mm spacer. Where does this go?

I don't think it does.
I just threw it in with the other spacers I have.

I searched through here and found a couple of hits on the Killshot motor not fitting well on this car. Mine is tweaking the chassis pretty good. I emailed Jim about it and referenced a couple of posts here about new end plates. In the meantime, do you think it would be OK to put a thin spacer under the screw/nut on the motor plate to get the motor off the chassis?

I would think you'd need to shim the layshaft bulkheads, front of motor mount, and top deck.

Well I ended up just putting a single .030" shim between the motor mount and chassis where the bolt/nut is. It worked fine for the time being. I emailed Jim Dieter that same night and he got right back with me saying the end plates were made wrong on early models of the Killshot and is sending me new ones for my motors.

One more question before pulling the trigger on the RX4 conversion. Does it work well regardless of grip level? For example, I regularly go to 2 tracks. One is what I would consider medium grip and the other is insanely high grip. I realize I would probably have to tweak my setup a bit but overall it would be good for all conditions?

I would say yes, the chassis has a nice balance, and should adapt well. Given how different the setups will be, I'd probably recommend sourcing some spec-r roll center shims, it'll make switching between setups much quicker.

Questions??

Could somebody tell me where still sell long shock mount through online, please?
In fact i could see all places are out of stock?

And i wonder to know about Reflex racing site, why they rebranded inserts of pivot block of conversion kit of Specr as their own then sell them with double price.
Will they care to buy Specr ones, since they are the same kind?

Default Kits coming!

I have two T4 cars and I run VTA and USGT. I have decided to go with two V2 conversions rather than buying two T4 14 cars. I ordered the conversion kits from reflex over a week ago so I hope they get here soon. I run on carpet and hope to run VEGAS this year... Keep posting information on this thread because any information will be a help....
